Difference analysis between early strength agent and superplasticizer for concrete

The price of nickel and stainless steel rose together. Nickel afternoon hand in hand with stainless steel together turn red up. Due to the temporary easing of geopolitical risks, risk assets are now picking up, nonferrous metals, stock markets, and so on have risen, the overall mood has temporarily improved. Ore prices are strong, the overlay of the epidemic on spot logistics or the formation of a certain impact. Phase, nickel and stainless steel materials to maintain high wide concussion pattern.

Nickel prices based on low inventory, tight supply and demand will still show high wide fluctuations. In addition, the current LME has low liquidity, so its sensitivity to capital will remain relatively high. Shanghai nickel-wide fluctuations are expected to continue in the 200,000-250,000 yuan wide repeated fluctuation trend. While stainless steel is affected by the stronger nickel pig iron, the cost support continues, but note that under the current demand is not effectively released, the upward space may also be affected, the stage is expected to fluctuate between 20000 and 22,000 yuan. The price of nickel produced such fluctuations, indicating that the price of the early strength agent,superplasticizer for concrete may also be affected to a certain extent.


1 Definition

Early strength admixture refers to the admixture that can improve the early strength of concrete and has no significant effect on the later strength.


Superplasticizer for concrete is a concrete admixture that can reduce the amount of mixing water while maintaining the slump of concrete basically unchanged.


2 Categories

Early-strength agents can be divided into three categories according to chemical composition: strong electrolyte inorganic salts, water-soluble organic compounds, and composite early-strength agents composed of organic and inorganic compounds.


Polycarboxylic superplasticizers are usually divided into: lignosulfonate superplasticizers, naphthalene superplasticizers, melamine superplasticizers, sulfamate superplasticizers, and fatty acid superplasticizers according to their chemical composition. Superplasticizers, polycarboxylate superplasticizers.


3 Main ingredients

In addition to chloride and sulfate, early strength agents include nitrite, chromate, etc., as well as organic substances such as triethanolamine, calcium formate, urea, etc.


Different types of superplasticizer for concrete have very different components. It is mainly a surfactant. Currently, the third-generation polycarboxylate superplasticizer is widely used.


4 Uses

The early strength agent does not contain chloride ions and has no rust effect on steel bars. It is suitable for all civil and industrial buildings, prestressed reinforced concrete components, mortar, etc. It is most suitable for construction under low temperature conditions in early winter and early spring. .


Water reducing agent is widely used in high-speed rail, high-speed, civil, industrial buildings and prefabricated component factories, etc. It has wide applicability and is suitable for all seasons.


5 Notes

The dosage of early strength agent is 3-6% of cement. In order to keep the quality of the concrete mixed with this agent uniform, the stirring time is prolonged by 1-2 minutes. Concrete mixed with early strength agent cannot use active mineral orthopedics (such as opal). If this agent is damp and agglomerated, it must be crushed or weathered before use, and its performance remains unchanged.


Because there are many types of superplasticizers, the appropriate type of superplasticizer should be selected according to the needs of the project. For winter construction, it is recommended to use the third-generation polycarboxylate superplasticizer.

The resurgence of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict continued to cause high volatility in commodity prices. Stubbornly high inflation and rising commodity prices are likely to influence each other and thus push each other higher. The price of the early strength agent,superplasticizer for concrete may not decrease significantly in the short term.
