ACI 212.3R-10 - Report on Chemical Admixtures for Concrete by ACI


Chemical admixtures, that are basically water-soluble elements, are mentioned intimately and, during this record, are labeled into thirteen teams: airentraining; accelerating; water-reducing and set-retarding; admixtures for flowing concrete; admixtures for self-consolidating concrete; chilly climate admixture platforms; admixtures for terribly high-early-strength concrete; prolonged set keep an eye on; shrinkage-reducing; corrosion-inhibiting; lithium; permeability-reducing; and miscellaneous. Chemical admixtures are used every day within the cast-in-place and precast concrete industries. Twelve different types of admixtures are defined intimately as to variety, present utilization, and their influence on concrete within the plastic and hardened kingdom. Their advantages and customary utilization are outlined.

Each classification of admixture addresses the advantages accessible with their use in a thoroughly proportioned concrete mix, forms of batching platforms, regulate measures, and attempt placements for mix layout verification. mix designs utilizing a number of chemical admixtures became extra universal. Their winning utilization calls for right compatibility and, usually, environment instances and early strengths which are right for the putting setting. the capability merits are highlighted to all participants of the concrete staff, concrete contractor, concrete manufacturer, admixture provider, and trying out personnel.

Finely divided mineral admixtures are addressed through ACI 232.2R “Use of Fly Ash in Concrete,” ACI 232.1R “Use of uncooked or Processed normal Pozzolans in Concrete” and ACI 234R “Guide for using Silica Fume in Concrete.”

Keywords: accelerating; admixture; admixture approach; air-entraining; alkali-aggregate response; flowing concrete; high-range water-reducing admixture; permeability-reducing admixtures; self-consolidating concrete; shrinkage-reducing; water-reducing and set-retarding.

Example text

The positive and negative charges within amine carboxylate molecules are attracted to anodic and cathodic microcells on the metal surface, forming a protective, monomolecular layer that also reduces the corrosion rate (Bavarian and Reiner 2004). As amine carboxylates migrate through the concrete, some of them will react with calcium hydroxide in the concrete to form calcium oxalate [Ca(COO)2], an insoluble salt, which effectively blocks some of the pores, making future ingress of chlorides and other contaminants more tortuous (Sastri 1998).

The use of Type III cement, however, is more beneficial than a Type I or II cement due to its inherent ability to produce high early strengths. Mixture proportioning of the concrete is similar to that of a conventional high-strength concrete, but generally a slightly higher cement factor and a high dosage of the set accelerator are used. The admixture system used in VHESC requires a highrange water reducer, a set accelerator, and an air-entraining admixture if freezing-and-thawing resistance is required.

The strength development of VHESC increases with the increase in the dosage of the accelerator and reduction in the w/cm. Some accelerators cause a delay in set time and strength development and should not be used for this application. The ultimate strength of the VHESC depends on the w/cm of the concrete mixture. Although accelerators increase the development of early-age strength, the ultimate strength with some accelerators have been observed to slightly decrease when compared with conventional concrete used without accelerator at the same w/cm.
