In order to ensure the quality of concrete, users tend to add water reducing agents to improve the quality of
concrete when they allocate concrete. Now, polycarboxylic acid water reducing agent, as a new generation of
water reducing agent, has been praised by researchers and some users from the beginning because of its low
content and significant water reducing effect, and has been used more. However, due to its instability,
attention should be paid to problems in use.
Polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer has indeed shown some undesirable phenomena in the practical engineering application,
such as concrete performance sensitive to the dosage and water consumption of superplasticizer, polycarboxylic acid
superplasticizer and other superplasticizer or modified components of poor compatibility. Because people's understanding
about it is relatively shallow at the present stage, the application of accumulated experience is less, the solution of this
technical problem is not an overnight.
Since the slump of concrete prepared by mixing polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent is generally large,
coupled with the low viscosity of the mix, the vibration radius and vibration time of the concrete mix after
pouring should be determined through the test, or should follow the guidance of experts. If the vibration radius is too small,
or the vibration time is too long, it is easy to cause serious reduction of concrete gas content, serious stratification of aggregate
phase and slurry phase and other structural defects.
In any situation, for any concrete mix, the initial and post-casting curing is very important. Polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer
has little effect on the dry shrinkage performance of concrete, or adding it does not excessively increase the dry shrinkage of concrete,
by no means means that adding superplasticizer concrete can relax or even cancel curing.
The above is the introduction of the problems in the use of polycarboxylic acid water reducer. I hope you must use it in strict accordance
with the rules in the future.
