Uses and usage of various concrete additives

Prices in the national electricity market averaged $87 per megawatt-hour in the first three months of the year, above the level promised by the federal government. Wholesale electricity prices for industry and large businesses have already exceeded the level promised by the federal government, adding another cost pressure to the economy. Prices in the national electricity market averaged $87 per megawatt-hour in the first three months of this year, up more than two-thirds from the December 2021 quarter, the Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO) said recently. That's up 141% from the March 2021 quarter.

Because of the ever-changing international situation, the supply and prices of international bulk concrete additive are still very uncertain.

Self-leveling regulating water-retaining agent

Dry and large flow concrete is used to solve the problems of unreasonable gradation of sand and stone, excessive stone powder, machine-made sand, bottom glue, low-grade large flow concrete, and poor waterline and workability after pumping and coagulation, which is different from traditional cellulose and dextrin. This product and the superplasticizer system have good mutual solubility, and there will be no delamination and deterioration at different temperatures. It is recommended to add 5~20kg per ton of finished polycarboxylic acid.

 

Machine-made sand regulator (liquid, powder)

Uses: it can be used for machine-made sand concrete to open, but it has poor workability, poor slump protection, less paste, exposed stone, bottom peeling and other conditions to improve its overall performance. It is recommended that 10% polycarboxylic acid be added with 20~40kg per ton.

 

Mud inhibitor (liquid, powder)

Used for washing sand, mountain sand, stone powder, artificial broken sand, large mud content of rubber, to ensure that it can be opened and protected, repel cement particles and disperse the paste. Equal or excessive replacement of ethers, so that polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer and slump-retaining agent play a routine role in practical work, so there is no need to greatly increase the amount of superplasticizer to achieve dispersion. Polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer with 10% solid content per ton is recommended, and 10~30kg is recommended.

 

Low temperature early strength antifreeze

Anti-freezing early strength, effectively improve 1-day, 3-day, 7-day early strength, no effect on the later strength growth, good frost resistance. It is recommended that 10% polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer plus 5-20kg per ton.

 

Concrete viscosity reducer

It is used for high grade concrete, low grade concrete with much stone powder and mortar and grouting materials. It is suggested that polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer with 10% solid content per ton should be added to this product 20~40kg.

 

Concrete antiflocculant.

When used in washing sand, it can effectively degrade and neutralize the effect of polyqing flocculant on the dispersibility, slump retention and strength of concrete. It is recommended that polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer with 10% solid content per ton be added to this product 20~40kg.

 

Concrete anti-segregation agent.

The concrete used for large slump segregation has a good control effect and a wide range of dosage. it is suitable for drivers to adjust at the construction site without returning the car, and will not affect the strength, setting time and chromatic aberration of segregated concrete. This product is powder. It is recommended to add 0.5-1kg to each side of concrete and mix fully in the mixer for more than 3 minutes.

 

Super retarder.

When used in the environment with high temperature (above 35 ), it has a wide adaptability to materials and will not appear pseudo-condensation phenomenon. It can delay the final setting of concrete for more than 18 hours and does not affect the later strength. It is recommended that 10% polycarboxylic acid cost addition 10~60kg/.

 

Polycarboxylic acid high efficiency air entraining agent.

Good foaming and foaming stability. Reduce the adsorption of superplasticizer in inferior cementing materials, effectively improve the grouting, workability and impermeability of concrete, and have little effect on the strength of thermosolidified soil. The finished product containing 10% solid content of polycarboxylic acid per ton is added to this air entraining agent 0.5~2.0kg (common dosage 0.8~1.5kg); 20% solid content is doubled accordingly. It is recommended that 30% of naphthalene or aliphatic or aminosulfonic acid superplasticizer per ton, plus 1.5 ~ 3.0kg.

 

Naphthalene slump protection agent.

The cement particles are released from charge in the later stage of hydration to achieve the purpose of post-dispersion, so that the concrete can get plasticity, thus delaying the slump loss of concrete and saving the amount of air entrained and dextrin. It is suggested that naphthalene superplasticizer with 30% solid content should be added to 25~40kg per ton.

 

preservative.

Polycarboxylic acid (naphthalene series, etc.) superplasticizer is antiseptic and sterilized with polycarboxylic acid, sodium gluconate, sugar and other components. Industrial washing products, emulsified metal processing oil and other anti-corrosion. It is recommended to add 0.8~2kg per ton of finished products.

 

Concrete foaming agent.

Foaming and foam stabilization, used for lightweight thermal insulation material of foamed concrete. Backfill concrete ten sound insulation materials, 3D printing materials, etc. According to the bulk density or strength requirements of different materials, the addition amount varies from 1% to 10% of the rubber material.

 

Defoamer.

Coagulation and water reducer industries, papermaking, oil refining, coal water slurry additives, sewage treatment and other industries to eliminate large foam and stabilize micro-foam. It is recommended to add 100-200g per ton of finished superplasticizer.

 

Modified rosin air entraining agent.

The disadvantages of high viscosity and poor water solubility of traditional macromolecular rosin air entraining agent can be changed to form fine and dense bubbles and good stability of microfoams. Improve the workability and impermeability of concrete. It is recommended to add this product 2~4kg for every ton of finished water reducer.

The drought in Europe is still getting worse. The drought in France is particularly severe. Recently, the French Prime Minister's Office issued a statement saying that the current drought in France is the worst in history. Prime Minister Borne decided to activate an inter-ministerial crisis group to deal with the drought. French Minister for Ecological Transformation Christopher Beshu said that there is no drinking water in pipes in more than 100 towns across France. In addition, Italy also suffered from hot and dry weather, with the highest temperature exceeding 40 ℃ on the 5th local time, and several cities, including the capital Rome, issued a red alert for high temperatures. The country is experiencing its worst drought in more than 220 years.


British officials have released statistics on the sequelae of COVID-19, which has aroused concern. As of July 2, 1.8 million people in the UK were suffering from the symptoms of "long COVID-19", according to a report released by the Office for National Statistics. Among them, 14% of the people were not cured within 12 weeks, and 81% of the people were infected for more than 12 months.
