Cement is the most common binding material used in construction activities. Cement is mixed
with crushed rocks, sand and water in specific proportion to create concrete. Admixtures are
chemicals that are added to concrete at the initial mixing stage to enhances or modify the
working properties of the mix. Concrete admixtures are primarily used to enhance the
compressive strength, workability and durability parameter of the concrete and to reduce the
water content in it. Admixtures are generally classified according to application as Plasticizers
(water reducing agents), super plasticizers (high range water reducers), air entrainers,
accelerators and retarders. Also, three types of admixtures very common in the market such as
Lingo-based, Sulfonated Naphthalene Formaldehyde (SNF) and Sulfonated Melamine
Formaldehyde (SMF) based and PCE (Polycarboxylate Ether) based admixtures. Optimum use of
admixtures depends on several factors including the type and amount of cement used, working
temperature of concrete and air and water content.

For developers, engineers, contractors, builders, architects and other end-users, concrete
admixtures offer innumerable benefits such as corrosion resistance, reduced permeability and
improved resistance to chemical attack, effective placement of concrete in extreme weather
conditions and underwater placement of concrete.
The demand for concrete admixtures is directly related to cement consumption trends. Some of
the drivers of the concrete admixtures market are improving quality of construction in...
