MasterPolyheed® 1725 (Formerly PolyHeed 1725) 

MasterPolyheed 1725 mid-range water reducing admixture is based on the next generation of polycarboxylate technology. This new admixture technology utilizes state-of-the-art molecular engineering and provides enhanced concrete performance and value for concrete producers and contractors. The use of MasterPolyheed 1725 admixture results in concrete mixtures with faster setting time characteristics, higher early compressive strength performance, and superior concrete workability, pumpability and finishability compared to conventional normal and mid-range water-reducing admixtures.

MasterPolyheed 1725 admixture meets ASTM C 494/C 494M provisional compliance requirements for Type A,water reducing, and Type F, high-range water-reducing admixtures.


  • Reduced water content for a given level of workability
  • Excellent performance across a wide concrete slump range, especially the difficult slump range of 5-8 in. (125-200 mm)
  • Superior concrete workability, pumpability and finishability qualities even in concrete mixes containing manufactured sand and low amounts of cementitious materials
  • Faster time of setting at mid to higher dosage rates


  • Significantly reduced labor costs for concrete placement and finishing
  • Lower in-place concrete costs
  • Higher Strength at all ages
  • Enhanced concrete durability
  • Increased service life of concrete structures
