First of all, let us know about admixtures. Admixtures are the chemical substances that are designed to add to the concrete before preparing the mixture. These admixtures can be natural or can be manufactured. The most popular and commonly used admixtures are water reducers; slump retainers, air-entraining agents; accelerators and water-reducing retarders. They are used to increase the workability; durability and strength of the concrete.

Types of concrete admixture:

There are various types of admixtures that are given below:

  • Gas forming admixtures: These types of admixtures include activated carbon, hydrogen peroxide, aluminium powder, and various others. When they are added, then it reacts with hydroxide achieved by the hydration of cement and forms bubble in the concrete.
  • Water reducing admixtures: As the name suggests, these types of admixtures are used to reduce the amount of water in the mixture of concrete. Increase of water will increase the workability but decreases the strength and durability. Therefore, these admixtures remove the extra amount of water present in the mixture.
  • Air detraining admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to remove the excess air from the concrete mixture.
  • Slump Retaining admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to increase the workability of concrete and control the drop in slump over time. These type of admixtures are mainly used in RMC Plants and long distance concreting through batching plants.
  • Alkali aggregate expansion preventing admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to form a gel-like substance and cause volumetric expansion of cement.
  • Retarding admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to decrease the rate of hydration of the cement and increase the setting of the concrete.
  • Anti-washout admixtures: These types of admixtures are used for the underwater concrete structure.
  • Pozzolanic admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to create dense concrete mixtures and reduce the heat of thermal and hydration shrinkage.
  • Grouting admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to enhance the grouting property according to the need of grout.
  • Accelerating admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to reduce the initial setting time of concrete.
  • Corrosion preventing admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to prevent and slow down the process of corrosion.
  • Damp proofing admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to prevent the dampness on the concrete surface.
  • Bonding admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to create a bond between the old and fresh surfaces of the concrete.
  • Colouring admixtures: These types of admixtures are used to produce the color in the finished concrete.

Benefits of admixture concrete:

There are various benefits of admixture concrete. Some of them are given below:
  • It makes the concrete economic by reducing the required quantity of the cement.
  • In concrete, the admixtures impart early strength.
  • It helps in improving the workability of concrete.
  • It uses waste products that maximize sustainability.
  • It can also act as anti-bacterial agents in some conditions.
  • It can help to produce self compacting concrete even with help of crush sand and thus ensure large section concreting in minimal time.
  • It helps in replacement of cement with fly ash and replacement of river sand with crush sand.
