Water-reducing agent for improving the fluidity of the concrete mixture
What is a water reducing agent?
Water reducing agent is a concrete admixture that can reduce the amount of water used for mixing while maintaining a constant slump of concrete. Most are anionic surfactants, such as lignin sulfonates, naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde polymers, etc. After adding the concrete mixture, it has a dispersing effect on cement particles, can improve its workability, reduce unit water consumption, and improve the fluidity of concrete mix; Or reduce the amount of cement per unit to save cement. Water-reducing agents are mainly used in concrete projects with grades C15 to C60 or higher, especially for concrete projects with quality requirements. This additive is indispensable. However, there are two types of water-reducing agents: common and high-efficiency. Please pay attention when selecting them because the two types of performance are different. Ordinary water-reducing agents can not be used in concrete projects with temperatures below 5 degrees Celsius. In contrast, efficient ones can be used in concrete projects above zero degrees Celsius.
Effect of water reducing agent
Water-reducing agents can reduce the material used without changing the proportion of primary raw materials. For example, adding a second to fifth percent water-reducing agent can save 15 to 30 percent of the cement used. At the same time, it can effectively improve the rheology and plasticity of concrete, allowing it to have a variety of construction methods, such as pumping, gravity flow, etc., saving a lot of construction time. Adding a water-reducing agent to concrete can improve its service life and at least double it. In addition, it can also reduce the shrinkage rate during solidification, avoid the occurrence of cracks in the later stage of the component, and improve frost resistance, which is very beneficial for winter use.
Scope of application of water reducing agent
Suitable for pumping or standard concrete projects with strength levels of C15 to C60 and above. Especially ideal for preparing concrete projects with high durability, fluidity, slump resistance, strength, and increased requirements for appearance quality. It is highly advantageous for preparing high-flow concrete, self-compacting concrete, and fair-faced concrete. Ordinary water-reducing agents should be used for concrete construction with a daily minimum temperature of 5 ℃ or higher. The high-efficiency water-reducing agent is suitable for concrete structures with a daily minimum air temperature above 0 ℃. It is ideal for preparing high-flow, high-strength, and steam-cured concrete.
Price of water reducing agent
Water-reducing agent particle size and purity will affect the product's Price, and the purchase volume can also affect the cost of water-reducing agent. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The Price of water-reducing agent is on our company's official website.
