ADMIXTURES What? Admixture is a material added to plastic (fresh) concrete or mortar before or during mixing. Why? To change one or more properties of fresh or hardened concrete. When to use admixture? When the desired modification of properties of fresh or hardened concrete cannot be achieved by changing the composition of the mix proportion or by using different types of cement.

reinforcement in the concrete. ADMIXTURES Admixtures are mixed into the concrete to change or alter its properties, ie the time concrete takes to set and harden, or its workability. HOW THE PROCESS WORKS Measured amounts of the coarse and fine aggregates are mixed together. A measured amount of cement is added and mixed in.

Workability. Factors that influence the workability of concrete are: (1) the method and duration of transportation; (2) quantity and characteristics of cementitious materials; (3) concrete consistency (slump); (4) grading, shape, and surface texture of fine and coarse aggregates; (5) entrained air; (6) water content; (7) concrete and ambient air temperatures; and (8) admixtures.

Admixtures enhance the properties of concrete and mortar in the plastic and hardened state. Effectiveness in concrete will depend on its concentration and the effect of the various constituents in the concrete mixture. Very unusual to make concrete w/o an admix with wetcast – because of enhanced performance and/or economic considerations

Types of Accelerators Calcium Formate Acceleration without risk of corrosion can be achieved by the use of very rapid hardening cements (high C 3 A) or of chloride free admixtures. One good chloride free admixture is Calcium formate. Calcium formate increases the strength of concrete up to about 24 hours, the effect being greater with low C 3 A cements: Concrete could achieve at 4½ hours the ...

Retarding admixtures. The use of this admixture is defined in ASTM C494. There are two kinds of retarders, defined as Type B (Retarding Admixtures) and Type D (Water Reducing and Retarding Admixtures). The main difference between these two is the water-reducing characteristic in Type D that gives higher compressive strengths by lowering w/cm ratio.
