SHSL1701109 Water Reducing Admixture For Concrete Ready Mix Plant

Use of Water Reducers, Retarders, and Superplasticizer

Water reducing admixtures (WRA) The use of WRA is defined as Type A in ASTM C 494. WRA affects mainly the fresh properties of concrete by reducing the amount of water used by 5% to 12% while maintaining a certain level of consistency, measured by the slump as prescribed in ASTM C 143-90.

Materials Selection Guide: Water-Reducing Admixtures ...

Dec 05, 2006 · To combat the retarding effect, water-reducing admixtures have been combined with accelerating admixtures to make a new type of admixture with greater abilities. These admixtures, marketed as midrange water reducers, can provide water reduction up to 12% and often meet the requirements of ASTM C 494 for Type A water-reducing admixtures.

Seven Must-Use Concrete Admixtures (Additives)

Set retarding concrete admixtures are used to delay the chemical reaction that takes place when the concrete starts the setting process. These types of concrete admixtures are commonly used to reduce the effect of high temperatures that could produce a faster initial setting of concrete. Set retarding admixtures are used in concrete pavement construction, allowing more time for finishing concrete pavements, reducing additional costs to place a new concrete batch plant on the job site and helps e

Types of Concrete Chemicals (Admixtures) and their Applications

The specific effects, however, should be found from the manufacturer or concrete supplier. 4. Water reducing admixtures. Water reducing admixtures require less water to make a concrete of equal slump, or increase the slump of concrete at the same water content. They can have the side effect of changing initial set time.
