Differences between several kinds of Water Reducing Agents

The latest forecast from consulting firm AlixPartners is that the chip shortage may cost the global auto industry $110 billion; it will reduce global auto production by 3.9 million this year. For the global chip shortage, AlixPartners analyzed that the main reason is that the chip production cycle is too long; at the same time, other uncontrollable risks from the industry chain have also affected the production rhythm. As the chip supply shortage continues to intensify, some automakers' factories have been forced to stop production for several days Even weeks, which companies such as Ford, GM, Stellantis, and others have been hit particularly hard. Even BMW, which was previously less affected, is beginning to show difficulties, with its Oxford plant in the UK shutting down for three days from April 30 and its Regensburg plant in Germany starting to reduce production shifts this week.
Chip supply shortages drive concrete superplasticizer.

Introduction to Superplasticizer:

Superplasticizer, or high-efficient water reducing agent, has the functions of high efficient water reduction, slow coagulation, slump, and enhancement. It has strong adaptability to cement, less dosage, is easy to use, especially suitable for high-efficient water reduction and slow coagulation requirements of concrete engineering. The water reduction rate is 18% to 25%.

 

Differences between several kinds of Water Reducing Agent

Lignosulfonate

It is a common water-reducing agent made of lignin. Most of its raw materials are extracted from coniferous trees and other species of material. This water reducing agent mixed with mortar can improve the fluidity of mortar, and enhance the solidification force of mortar. Its water reduction rate is about five to ten percent. 

Naphthalene sulfonate water reducing agent

It is a special water reducing agent. It is the product of naphthalene reacting with sulfuric acid and then fusing with formaldehyde. This water-reducing agent presents different colors from light to deep. It has strong water solubility and a good dispersion effect for a series of powdery building materials like cement. Its water reduction rate is about 10 percent higher than lignin.

Polycarboxylate-based high-performance water reducing agent

It is a newly developed kind of reducing water agent using high technology. It is based on polycarboxylate as the main body of a variety of polymer organic compounds, graft copolymerization generated, with strong water reduction performance, is the world's leading technology environmental protection concrete admixture.

Its compatibility with all kinds of cement is good, the slump of concrete keeps the performance good, can prolong the construction time of concrete. It has a high water reduction rate with a low dosage. It can greatly improve the early and late strength of concrete. It has a low content of chloride ions and alkali, which is beneficial to the durability of concrete. It is a green environmental protection product with a pollution-free production process and without formaldehyde. It is suitable for precast and cast-in-place concrete, reinforced concrete, and prestressed concrete for high-speed railway, passenger dedicated lines, industrial and civil buildings, roads, bridges, ports and docks, airports, and other engineering construction. It is especially suitable for construction projects with long construction time and high requirements for concrete slumps, such as nuclear power projects.

The development of the Russia-Ukraine conflict will continue to dominate the commodity prices such as the concrete superplasticizer in the future. If the conflict eases or cools, Russia and Ukraine go back to negotiate, commodity prices would fall. However, if the situation between Russia and Ukraine deteriorates further, or evolves into a full-scale war, the price of the concrete superplasticizer is predicted to see further improvement over the coming days.
