(1) Sodium Gluconate As Concrete Retarder

As a concrete retarder, Kingsun sodium gluconate 98% min can delay the Initial and final setting time of concrete. In general, it can extend the concrete setting time by a few days without effect the strength of the concrete. Of course, it can also act as a water reducing admixture to improve the workability and the strength of concrete.

Kingsun sodium gluconate for sale
Kingsun Sodium Gluconate Powder
  • Other Name: Sodium Salt of Gluconic Acid
  • Appearance: White crystalline grain or powder

(2) Sodium Lignosulfonate As Concrete Water Reducer

Sodium lignosulfonate has adsorption and dispersion effects on cement and can improve various physical properties of concrete. Adding sodium lignosulphonate to concrete can reduce water consumption by more than 13%, improve the workability of concrete, and can greatly reduce the heat of hydration in the early stage of cement hydration. In addition, it can also be compounded with other admixtures into early strength agents, retarders, antifreeze, pumping agent, etc.

  • PH Value: 6.5-8.5, 9.0±1.0

Why We Use Admixtures in Concrete Construction?

Generally speaking, Kingsun concrete admixtures are used to give special properties to fresh or hardened concrete. They can enhance the durability, workability, or strength characteristics of concrete. Besides, these concrete chemicals are used to overcome different construction situations, such as hot or cold weather placements, pumping requirements, early strength requirements, or very low water-cement ratio specifications.

The above are their main advantages and applications. Concrete admixtures have revolutionized the construction industry by enabling engineers and builders to achieve superior concrete properties and tailor mixes to meet specific project demands. Whether it’s enhancing workability, improving freeze-thaw resistance, accelerating or retarding setting times, or protecting against corrosion, the diverse range of admixtures available today empowers professionals to create structures that are not only strong but also resilient, durable, and designed to stand the test of time. Embrace the potential of concrete admixtures to elevate the quality and performance of your construction projects to new heights.
