MasterCem LS 3590: Cement performance enhancer

Formerly: Cementium 3590 LS

 

How does MasterCem LS 3590 work?

MasterCem LS 3590 cement additive is a liquid, ready-to-use performance enhancer used in the production of portland cement. MasterCem LS 3590 cement additive, in addition to acting as a grinding aid, is specifically designed to increase the late-age strength development of cement. MasterCem LS 3590 cement additive modifies the hydraulic properties of clinker used in the production of cement. This performance can be used to deliver superior cement performance or to substitute clinker with supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) or mineral fillers, while maintaining original cement performance level.

Grinding efficiency improvement is typically in the 10-15% range vs. untreated cement. Product performance is dependent on raw material properties, grinding equipment characteristics, process conditions and cement type.

MasterCem LS 3590 meets the requirements of ASTM C 465, for liquid processing additives.
