New Trends in the Development of High-Range Water-Reducing Admixtures
Abstract: Chemical admixtures, in addition to cement, sand, gravel and water, are a primary component of concrete. High-range water reducers, also known as superplasticizers, are one of the most important chemical admixtures. The different kinds of superplasticizers possess specific advantages, but also drawbacks. Therefore, new chemical structures for advanced superplasticizers need to be tried. This paper presents new trends in the development of superplasticizers.
