  • Raw Materials for Superplasticizers

    Superplasticizers are used to achieve high levels of workability or water reductions of 12% to over 30%. They are used extensively in larger projects where reinforcing steel requires high workability, for precast concrete, and on site where the large water reduction capability provides very high early strength concrete with improved durability. more
