Concrete is a modern material that uses a variety of chemical additives, each with their own unique characteristics. These additives play a vital role in improving the performance of concrete and maintaining its quality. Here are some of the most common chemical additives and their benefits.
Cement Water Reducing Agent
It can be used to improve the strength of the concrete, reduce the amount cement and maintain the fluidity. Cement-water-reducing agents can be classified as conventional or high-performance. A conventional type of cement water-reducing agent is used in ordinary concrete. High-performance types are designed for special concrete projects such as self compacting concrete or high strength concrete.
Retarders can reduce the time it takes for concrete to set and increase the flexibility of the construction process. Retarders can control the concrete setting speed to ensure smooth progress in large-scale projects due to the long construction times.
Early Strengthening Agent
Early-strengthening compounds accelerate the concrete hardening process, allowing for a rapid increase in strength. It is especially useful for projects which need to be completed quickly or put to use as soon a possible. The use of early-strength agent can help improve the progress of the project and shorten construction time.
Waterproofing agents are used to improve the strength of concrete and prevent water penetration. Waterproofing agent can be divided in two categories: surface waterproofing agent and deep waterproofing agent. Choose the waterproofing agent that best suits your needs.
