The formula and production method of water reducer for concrete

The U.S. and its allies plan to impose sanctions on more Russian industries and supply chains.

The US government representatives recently visited Europe to consult with allies on strengthening and enforcing sanctions to punish Russia. They also plan to take action to disrupt their critical supply chains.

The US government claims that the sanctions imposed on Russia since the invasion began on February 24 have proved extremely effective, plunging Russia into a financial crisis. The sanctions include a freeze on the Russian central bank's foreign exchange assets, a ban on hard currency transactions by major Russian banks and wealthy individuals, and export restrictions on advanced semiconductors and other technologies. The sanctions have weakened the Russian economy and left the Kremlin with fewer resources.

The volatile international political situations will continue to affect the markets and prices of many commodities like the water reducer,water reducing agent ,concrete admixtures.


The application of various concrete admixtures can not only improve the performance of concrete, but also promote the development of new concrete technologies, promote the application of industrial by-products in cementitious material systems, and also help save resources and protect the environment. , has gradually become an essential material for high-quality concrete. Among them, the water reducing agent is a kind of concrete, and the water reducing agent is a concrete admixture that can reduce the mixing water consumption under the condition that the concrete slump is basically unchanged. Most of them are anionic surfactants, such as lignosulfonate, naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde polymer, etc. When we add the concrete mixture, it has a dispersing effect on the cement particles, which can improve its workability, reduce the unit water consumption, and improve the fluidity of the concrete mixture; or reduce the unit cement consumption, effectively saving cement.


The specific operation method of the water reducing agent formula for concrete:

1. Maleic anhydride is prepared into a 5-7% solution according to the required amount and recorded as the head material.

2. The initiator is prepared into a 5-10% solution for later use.

3. Add the required amount of APEG or TPEG, heat to liquefy it, and then add the headstock.

4. Nitrogen replacement;

5. When the temperature rises to 75-85°C, the initiator is added dropwise, and the dropwise addition is completed at 80°C for 1.5-2 hours.

6. After the dropwise addition of the initiator is completed, keep the temperature at 80-90° C. for 4-4.5 hours to complete the reaction and cool down.

7. When the temperature drops to 40-50℃, add 50% KOH solution to neutralize to PH: 7-8.

8. After measuring the solid content, add the measured soft water according to the required solid content.

9. After the solid content is determined to be qualified, discharge the material.


After the above experiments, we can get the basic formula of water reducer for concrete:

Concrete water reducer formula 1:

Hydroxyethyl acrylate: 25g, acrylamide: 5g, allyl polyoxyethylene ether: 175g, sodium persulfate: 10g, neutralized by sodium hydroxide.

Concrete water reducer formula 2:

Allyl polyoxyethylene glycol ether: 40 g, acrylic monomer: 30 g, 10% ammonium persulfate aqueous solution 40 g, neutralized with triethanolamine.

Concrete water reducer formula 3:

Allyl polyoxyethylene glycol ether: 100 g, methacrylic acid: 70 g, acrylic acid: 20 g, 10% aqueous ammonium persulfate solution: 50 g, neutralized with sodium hydroxide.

Concrete water reducer formula 4:

Methacrylic acid: 25g:, allyl polyoxyethylene ether: 175g, sodium persulfate: 10g. , neutralized with sodium hydroxide.

Concrete water reducer formula 5:

TPEG: 180 g, hydrogen peroxide: 0.63 g, thioglycolic acid: 0.56 g, ascorbic acid: 0.3 g, acrylic acid: 182.3 g, neutralized with sodium hydroxide.

Concrete water reducer formula 6:

APEG: 180 g, hydrogen peroxide: 10 g, thioglycolic acid: 2.07 g, itaconic acid: 10 g, methacrylic acid: 21.23 g, neutralized with sodium hydroxide.

Because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, there is a shortage of natural gas supply. At the same time, other renewable energy sources cannot produce enough electricity, so electricity prices have soared in many countries of the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the water reducer,water reducing agent ,concrete admixtures would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
