MasterPel 240: Water-repellent and efflorescence control admixture with excellent resistance to wind-driven rain

Formerly: Rheopel Plus

 

How does MasterPel 240 work?

MasterPel 240 multipurpose admixture is used in a variety of water-repellent and efflorescence control applications. This unique formula is based on a novel silane chemistry that is different from that of conventional water-repellent admixtures in the concrete industry. MasterPel 240 admixture also exhibits excellent wind-driven rain resistance and has achieved the highest rating per ASTM E 514. MasterPel 240 admixture meets ASTM C 494/C 494M requirements for Type S, Specific Performance, admixtures.
