Sodium naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde (SNF/PNS/FND/NSF), also called naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde condensate, poly naphthalene sulfonate,  sulphonated naphthalene formaldehyde, SNF superplasticizer,  is commonly referred to as a superplasticizer for concrete. It is the light brown powder in appearance. SNF superplasticizer has a strong dispersion effect on cement particles, and the water reduction rate can reach 15-25%.  Therefore, sodium naphthalene is especially suitable for the preparation of high-strength concrete, steam-cured concrete, fluid concrete, impermeable concrete, waterproof concrete, plasticized concrete, steel bars and prestressed reinforced concrete.

The naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde condensate is made of naphthalene, sulfuric acid, formaldehyde and liquid base, and undergoes a series of reactions such as sulfonation, hydrolysis, condensation and neutralization, and then dried into SNF powder. Of course, different models of naphthalene sulfonate powder also have different technical specifications.

Main Applications of Sodium Naphthalene Sulfonate

(1) SNF superplasticizer can be widely used for various concrete projects such as railways, highways, bridges, hydropower, ports, docks, industrial and civil buildings, prefabricated components, and concrete with sodium sulfate content requirements.

(2) Besides, sodium naphthalene sulfonate (SNF) can be also used as a dispersant agent in the leather, textile and dye industries, etc.

  • High water reduction rate. When the water-cement ratio is constant, the initial slump of concrete can be increased by more than 10cm, and the water reduction rate of poly naphthalene sulfonate can reach up to 15-25%. More importantly, when the strength and slump are basically the same, The poly naphthalene sulfonate can also reduce the amount of cement used by 10-25%.
  • Good enhancement. The poly naphthalene sulfonate superplasticizer has obvious early strength and enhancement effect on concrete, and the strength increase range is 20-60%.
  • Adaptability. Naphthalene sulfonate is suitable for various specifications and models of cement. And it has good compatibility with other concrete admixtures, for example, it can be combined with an admixture such as a swelling agent, an air entraining agent, and an active admixture such as fly ash.
  • Good durability. It can effectively improve the pore structure of the concrete, thereby greatly improving the durability indexes of concrete such as impermeability, carbonation resistance and freeze-thaw resistance.
  • Improve the workability of concrete. Comprehensively improve the physical and mechanical properties of concrete.
  • Suitable for many concrete projects. Such as fluid concrete, plasticized concrete, steam-cured concrete, impermeable concrete, waterproof concrete, natural curing precast concrete, steel and prestressed reinforced concrete, high-strength and ultra-high-strength concrete.
  • Low sodium sulfate content. The sodium naphthalene has a low sodium sulfate content and does not crystallize in the winter when it is made into a liquid, which solves the problem of pipe blockage caused by sodium sulfate crystallization in winter concrete manufacturing and provides convenience for winter concrete construction. After compounding with the retarding component, the slump loss of concrete over time is small.
  • Easy to use. SNF powder can be used directly or dissolved in water to make a solution admixture, suitable for various construction environments or mixer types.
  • Good safety performance. Sodium naphthalene sulfonate is a non-hazardous chemical with many characteristics such as non-toxic, non-irritating and non-radioactive. No corrosion effect on steel reinforcement.
  1. SNF powder is suitable for fresh concrete with excessive slump loss over time and poor flowability.
  2. This product can also make fresh concrete have good workability and can make concrete obtain good slump retention.
  3. Good plasticity can significantly extend the transportation time and retention time of commercial concrete and reduce time loss.
  4. In the compounding of pumping agents, naphthalene superplasticizer can replace the amount of retarder according to the experimental results.
  5. The naphthalene sulfonate is used in various admixture masterbatches such as naphthalene, aliphatic, amino, polycarboxylic acid, etc.
  6. According to the restrictions of different regional ground materials, the performance of SNF superplasticizer is differentiated.
