Is this ready mix as most people buy??? Then add to title cos it's cheap
#3
No it's just cement
#4
Very cheap!
#5
Usually £6.50ish.

Great price, great cement.
#6
I was always put off with buying 5 bags so thought this was great!

Got some bags of sharp sand too. Will make a good mix.

No it isn't. This is "watered down" OPC with a significant amount of inert powdered industrial waste added to it. It's usually the same price as OPC but inferior quality though it's sold in a waterproof bag to make it look better than it is. I never touch the stuff, I hate manufacturers treating consumers like idiots and ripping them off.

thanks op

Spionkop-- Dominic littlewood says this is the best cement money can buy .. Surely Dom wouldn't lie to us ????

Are you having a laugh ? Watered down ? mastercrete is a top brand ! its used on building sites accross the country !

It's as good as I've used, the additives are to aid mixing and frost protection. It's great.

Most builders I know avoid it as it costs a quid more per bag and not for any quality issues.
#17
Additives in these cause render to crack, paper bag opc all the way

Maybe I'm naive but I don't think a multi-billion dollar building material manufacturer would put sh*t in cement that made it crack, none of the cement I've ever mixed has ended up cracking but maybe I've just been lucky.

Have gone through a lot of bags of this stuff over the last 5 years on a fair few projects and never had a problem. If you find its cracking/think its watered down I suggest you read up on how to mix mortar/concrete/render because you are doing it wrong.

I mistook the first word of the title for something else :0

I remember when this was released in the 90's, we had the rep's from Mastercrete on site giving us a demonstration, if I remember rightly its big selling point was you could add more water to make it usable if it was starting to go off.

dont forget quidco cashback if you do book and collect !

A squirt of fairy liquid in each batch will make it useable for slightly longer too, very handy on hot/humid days.

NEVER use fairy liquid. Its a no-no these days.

For concrete. It was reported years ago that due to the bubbles it creates air pockets and weaken the concrete

Rubbish.

Father has been a brickie for 50+ years and still, (as recently as yesterday doing some work at mines), puts a squirt in each batch.

I'll trust his judgement rather than a 'report' which was probably made by someone who has never handled a bag of cement in there life.

"im a builder ..over 6000 contracts ..every one paid ..if i ever caught any body using fairy liquid ..they would be sacked .on the spot ..no ifs ..out!..it kills cement ..i have seen what it does ..why use it ? because it makes the mortar more flexible ..creamy ...but the proper product is called febmix ..it entrains mortar ..this means it fills the mix with millions of tiny air bubbles ..but is not harmful to cement ...so get rid of your cowboys ...proper builders would never use it"

I am 100% convinced if I was inclined to, I could find reviews/comments/pros on using it, which would equal the amount of cons you could find.

I repeat, I will trust my fathers judgement, little squirt each batch depending on time restraints and the weather has been tried and tested, and he's worked all over europe over the course of 50+ years.

Totall agree, not to be used when rendering but for brickwork its perfectly fine.
