Concrete Admixtures - The Concrete Network

03/11/2020  Admixtures can restore loads of concrete that might need to be rejected due to delays or other complications. They can improve the performance of problem concrete by modifying its characteristics and enhancing workability. Admixtures are additions to a concrete mix that can help control the set time and other aspects of fresh concrete.

Types of Admixtures for Concrete - The Concrete Network

Mineral admixtures affect the nature of the hardened concrete through hydraulic or pozzolanic activity. Pozzolans are cementitious materials and include natural pozzolans (such as the volcanic ash used in Roman concrete), fly ash and silica fume. They can be used with Portland cement, or blended cement either individually or in combinations.

Concrete Admixtures for Hot Weather - The Concrete Network

Fritz Pak admixtures can be added to the mixer truck on site. They are a great way to fine tune your concrete slump and set time. Their hot-weather superplasticizing admixture increases slump by about 7 inches and retards set time by about an hour, although both of these numbers may be lower with hot concrete.

Concrete Admixture

Principle of Concrete Admixtures. Disperse Cement Particles. After the cement is added with water, due to the molecular cohesion between cement particles and other factors, a flocculation structure will be formed. The water-reducing agent molecule is composed of a hydrophilic group and a hydrophobic group.

A 0.5% concentration of admixture by weight of cement can increase slump from 25mm to 100 mm. (iii) BY the addition of the admixture, concrete with the same workability and compressive strength can be obtained at lower cement content. A 0.5% concentration of admixture by weight of cement may require 15% less cement.

Seven Must-Use Concrete Admixtures (Additives)

02/06/2021  Concrete Admixtures: Air-Entrainment. Air entrained concrete can increase the freeze-thaw durability of concrete. This type of admixture produces a more workable concrete than non-entrained concrete while reducing bleeding and segregation of fresh concrete. Improved resistance of concrete to severe frost action or freeze/thaw cycles.

Accelerating admixtures - Concrete

Accelerating admixtures. Accelerating admixtures can be used to increase either the rate of stiffening or setting of the concrete or the rate of hardening and early strength gain to allow earlier formwork striking and demoulding.

Conclusions and outlook on the future of concrete admixtures

01/01/2016  Inspired by Adam Neville's preface in Properties of Concrete (Neville, 1996), we can state that ‘the ingredients of good concrete are very simple: water, cement, sand, aggregates, mineral additions, and chemical admixtures. However, the ingredients of bad concrete are essentially the same. The difference lies in the know-how and the understanding’.
