Concrete Admixtures - Sika Corporation

A COMPLETE RANGE OF CONCRETE ADMIXTURES. For more than a century, Sika has been producing high quality, innovative admixture technologies for concrete. Sika’s first product, appropriately named "Sika 1", was a concrete admixture that allowed for the electrification of tunnels in Europe by waterproofing the concrete that lined the interior.

The Benefits of Water Reducers in Concrete - Folsom

Water reducers are admixtures for concrete. This means that they are actually added into the concrete mixture to reduce the water content. This allows the concrete to retain its flowing properties so that it's easy to work with. The water reducer doesn't evaporate; it helps increase the slump or flow without adding water.

Use of Water Reducers, Retarders, and Superplasticizer

WRA has been used primarily in hot weather concrete placing, pumping, and tremie. Careful concrete placement is required, as the initial setting time of concrete will take place an hour earlier. It is also shown that the use of WRA will give a higher initial concrete compressive strength (up to 28 days) by 10% compared to the control mixture.

Retarders for Concrete - Mechanism, Types and Effects on

Reading time: 1 minute Retarders for concrete are used to delay the initial setting time of the concrete upto an hour. They are generally used in the hot weather condition to counter the rapid hardening due to high temperature, thus allowing the time for mixing, transporting and placing. Retarders also acts as water reducers. []

Effect of a Retarding Admixture on the Setting Time of

While concreting in hot weather, both setting time and compressive strength are adversely affected. To prevent concrete from the adverse effects of hot weather, admixtures are usually incorporated in it. The objective of this paper is to investigate the effects of a retarding admixture (ASTM C 494 Type D) on setting time of cement pastes.
