Green Sense® Concrete 

The Technology

Green Sense Concrete is a revolutionary advanced concrete mixture proportioning service that achieves new levels of performance, economics and sustainability. Green Sense Concrete is an environmentally-preferred, cost-effective concrete with optimized proportions in which supplementary cementitious materials, non-cementitious fillers, or both, are used with special Master Builders Solutions brand MasterGlenium® high-range water-reducing admixtures and/or MasterSure® Z 60 workability-retaining admixture to meet or exceed performance targets.    

Green Sense Concrete  is a new concrete that, relative to a baseline reference mix, attains desired setting characteristics, strength, durability, and if needed, a higher slump at a reduced cost to the producer. The innovative Green Sense Concrete allows producers to increase their profitability, provide the contractor with a user-friendly mix that pumps and places efficiently, increases the service-life of structures, and offers the opportunity to positively influence the environment.

 

Benefits of Green Sense Concrete:

Because Green Sense Concrete is optimized for cost and performance, many tangible benefits can be realized by the entire construction team.  

Producer

  • Optimized and economical concrete composition cost
  • Faster truck discharge
  • Desired setting time, slump retention, and strength performance
  • No water needed at jobsite – less performance issues / callbacks due to water addition  

Contractor  

  • Highly flowable slump concrete: 8.0 in. (200 mm) – if desired
  • Good workability, pumpability and finishing characteristics  
  • Faster placement and production

Owner  

  • Desired durability performance
  • Lower shrinkage and cracking potential
  • Contributes toward LEED credits        

Environmental Agencies / Community

  • Less cement / CO2 / energy used per unit of concrete produced
  • Less by-product materials targeted for landfill
