                                         Admixtures for Concrete

Admixtures are added to a concrete mix either before or during its mixing to modify the properties of concrete like setting time, curing, temperature, colour or workability.

The use of Admixtures help to achieve the following objectives:

1. To reduce the cost of concrete construction.

2. To maintain the quality of concrete during different stages of concreting like mixing, transporting, placing and curing. 

Admixtures can be classified into the following five major categories:

  • Retarding admixtures
  • Accelerating admixtures
  • Super plasticizers
  • Water reducing admixtures
  • Air-entraining admixtures
