Alkali-free Concrete Additives Liquid Concrete Accelerator
In terms of international pricing benchmarks, according to the CP data released by Saudi Aramco in March 2022, the propane contract price (CP) in March was $895 / ton, up $120 / ton from the previous month, up 15.48% from the previous month and up 43.20% from the same period last year. Butane contract price (CP) in March was 920 US dollars/ton, up 145 US dollars/ton compared with last month, up 18.71% month-on-month, up 54.62% compared with the same period last year; In March, CP in Saudi Arabia rose sharply, giving a strong boost to the international and domestic LPG market. Benchmark LPG prices are higher than a year ago as the economy continues to recover and demand for crude oil continues to repair. According to this trend, the market price of Concrete Additives will also be affected to a certain extent.
1. Introduction of Alkali-free concrete accelerator
Alkali-free concrete accelerator is a new generation, environmentally-friendly, chlorine-free and alkali-free liquid accelerator developed by using a new synthetic technology of inorganic and organic materials. It can significantly promote water and mud hydration and increase the strength of concrete, and it has good compatibility with various cements.
The alkali-free concrete accelerator can be widely used in the wet spraying construction process of various projects, reducing dust during construction, less rebound loss, good concrete homogeneity, and significant economic benefits.
2. Technical performance of Alkali-free concrete accelerator
The setting time is fast, the initial setting adhesion is good, and the thickness of one shot can be 8-150mm. Low resilience and good workability. The working face is free of dust, chlorine, and alkali, which is beneficial to the health of operators. There is basically no loss in the later strength of concrete.
3. Dosage range of Alkali-free concrete accelerator
The dosage of this agent is 6-9% of the cement weight. It can replace the same amount of water, and the actual mixing amount should be determined after adjustments are made according to the cement type, label and construction temperature.
4. Scope of adaptation of Alkali-free concrete accelerator
This product is suitable for spray concrete construction and leak plugging of underground engineering such as mine engineering, coal mine, shaft engineering, highway, railway, traffic tunnel engineering, shotcrete anchor support concrete, urban construction, national defense, water conservancy, and ground cement concrete. Construction and concrete emergency rescue, emergency repair and reinforcement works.
5. How to use Alkali-free concrete accelerator
Before using this agent, it is necessary to make a trial mix of the cement and this agent for adaptability and optimum mixing amount. It is recommended to use a water reducing agent in conjunction with a low water-cement ratio to achieve better results.
The content of accelerator can be controlled by a flow hopper or a precision water meter.
This product should be stirred evenly after opening the barrel. If it cannot be used up at one time, it should be sealed and stored.
If it comes in contact with the skin, rinse immediately with clean water, if it splashes into the eyes, rinse with clean water, and seek medical help for disposal.
6. Packaging and storage of Alkali-free concrete accelerator
Packed in plastic drum, 250kg/drum, can be packed according to user requirements.
During transportation, load and unload with care to prevent spillage. It should be stored in a warehouse, protected from rain and sun. The validity period is six months.
With Tesla's new factory in Germany starting production this month, Volkswagen is just weeks away from finalizing plans for its 2 billion euro ($2.2 billion) electric car factory, which it hopes will bring it closer to its U.S. competitor. Tesla says it takes just 10 hours to produce a Model Y at its new factory in Grunheide, near the German capital, while Volkswagen takes three times as long to produce its ID.3 electric car. Volkswagen's productivity has been increasing by around 5 percent a year, said Christian Vollmer, head of the production at the Volkswagen brand.
The improvement in the efficiency of production vehicles will bring opportunities for Concrete Additives. In the future, the demand for Concrete Additives will become more and more extensive. Please feel free to contact us for the latest news on Concrete Additives.
