Polycarboxylic Acid Water Reducers - Effects and Benefits

Nov. 24, 2022

Polycarboxylic acid water reducing agent (PCE) is a new generation of popular high-performance concrete admixture that integrates water reduction, slump retention, reinforcement, shrinkage, and environmental protection, and is also an ideal admixture for formulating high-strength, high-performance concrete. PCE is widely used in water conservancy, electric power, ports, railroads, bridges, roads, tunnels, and construction projects. This article mainly introduces the role and advantages of polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agents.






The role of polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent


1. Accelerate the early strength development of concrete or mortar.

2. Improving the mixing and construction of concrete or mortar.

3. Save cement.

4. Adjusting the air content of concrete or mortar.

5. Adjusting the setting and hardening speed of concrete or mortar.

6. Improving the capillary structure of concrete or mortar.

7. Reduce the initial heat of hydration of cement or retard the exothermic heat of hydration.

8. Improving the water secretion of the mixture.

9. Improves the corrosion resistance of concrete, steel, or mortar.

10. Improve the pumping ability of concrete.

11. Improve the adhesion of the interface between aggregate and mortar.

12. Improve the grip of steel and concrete.

13. Improve the adhesion of the interface between old and new concrete.

14. Improve the strength and other physical and mechanical properties of concrete or mortar.



Advantages of polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agents


It is because the polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent has the above roles that it is widely used. So, what are the main advantages of polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agents?

1. Low dosage, high water reduction rate, and low shrinkage.

2. Good compatibility with many kinds of cement, good concrete slump maintenance performance, and prolonged concrete construction time.

3. Low chloride ion content and low alkali content are beneficial to improve the durability of concrete by increasing ultimate strength and reducing concrete permeability.

4. Obtain high-quality concrete mixtures with accelerated strength development and swelling workability without delayed setting characteristics.

5. To provide concrete mixtures with excellent casting characteristics and accelerated cement hydration for early strength development and high-quality concrete.

6. Non-polluting and formaldehyde-free production process. It meets ISO14000 international standards for environmental management and is a green product.

7. With a polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent, more slag or fly ash can be used instead of cement to reduce cost.
