Concrete Admixtures

Concrete Admixtures

Fountech is one stop supplier for all kinds of Concrete admixtures in Bangladesh since 2010.

Admixture: Pouring fresh concrete is a time-sensitive project and unexpected delays can cause major problems. With the use of admixtures, you can have more control over your concrete. 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.

Functions of Admixtures:

As explained above, admixtures are added to modify concrete properties. Major functions and advantages of using admixtures are detailed below.

  • To improve workability of fresh concrete.
  • To improve durability by entrainment of air
  • To reduce the water required
  • To accelerate setting & hardening & thus to produce high early strength
  • To aid curing
  • To impart water repellent / water proofing property
  • To cause dispersion of the cement particles when mixed with water
  • To retard setting
  • To improve wear resistance (hardness)
  • To offset / reduce shrinkage during setting & hardening
  • To cause expansion of concrete and automatic prestressing of steel
  • To aerate mortar / concrete to produce a light-weight product
  • To impart colour to concrete
  • To offset or reduce some chemical reaction
  • To reduce bleeding
  • To reduce the evolution of heat

Types of chemical admixture used are:

Nowadays, lot of additives are used in concrete mixes to enhance its properties. Depending on the specific function or action on the concrete property, it can be classified into following

  • Accelerator
  • Water reducing admixture
  • Superplasticizer
  • Air Entraining
  • Retarding
  • Corrosion inhibitors
  • Alkali-Aggregate Reaction Inhibiting
  • Shrinkage Reducing
