Concrete admixtures

Concrete admixtures allow a given degree of workability, consistency to be obtained at a reduced water/cement ratio. By decreasing the water/cement ratio, they help to increase the early and final strength and durability of the concrete product.

High-Strength Concrete

High strength concrete (HSC) may be defined as concrete with a specified characteristic cube strength between 60 and 100 N/mm2, although higher strengths have been achieved and used. Strength levels of 80 to 100 N/mm2 and even higher are being used for both precast and in-situ work in the USA, France, Norway and some other countries. The main applications for HSC in-situ concrete construction are in offshore structures, columns for tall buildings, long-span bridges and other highway structures. The main advantage is the reduction in size of compression elements and/or the amount of longitudinal reinforcement required.

Precast Concrete

Precast concrete is a construction product produced by casting concrete in a reusable mold or “form” which is then cured in a controlled environment, transported to the construction site and maneuvered into place; examples include precast beams, and wall panels for tilt up construction. In contrast, cast-in-place concrete is poured into site-specific forms and cured on site.

Ready Mix Concrete

Ready-mix concrete (RMC) isĀ concrete that is manufactured in a batch plant, according to each specific job requirement, then delivered to the job site “ready to use”.

The advantage of these concretes is that concrete is produced in a place that meets special standards and is convenient for production. It ensures timely delivery at the right time and to the right place based on the requirements of the customers. In addition, quality control is also convenient and easy. Continuous quality control is possible.

Chemical admixtures for ready-mixed concrete extend the hardening time of concrete or adapt it to the time required by the customer, reduce water consumption and thereby significantly increase the strength of concrete.
