How does it work?

Superplasticizers are adsorbed on the cement particles


The application of superplasticizers in concrete technology is based on their ability to modify the initial properties of cementitious mixes. By being adsorbed onto cement particles, they act as dispersants, leveraging both electrostatic and steric repulsion effects. This dual mechanism ensures increased fluidity and workability, allowing for the efficient incorporation of these modifying agents into concrete mixes. The ratio of superplasticizer to cementitious materials is a critical parameter in achieving the required performance outcomes. This attention to proportioning is fundamental in maintaining the overall quality of the concrete.
