BASF agent propagates CSH crystals to increase early, late-age strength


Focusing on the compound at the heart of quality concrete, BASF Construction Chemicals has developed a first-of-its-kind liquid admixture that improves early- and late-age strength development. Master X-Seed 55 is a stable suspension of synthetically produced crystalline calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) nanoparticles that facilitate growth of CSH crystals between cement grains and improve overall portland cement hydration.
