Polycarboxylate-based High-performance Water Reducing Agent

The roble had hit a record low after the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its aggression in Ukraine. Russia's president recently ordered exports of Russian gas to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. The speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said Moscow was prepared and could shift supplies to markets such as Asia if Europe refused to buy Russian energy.

European countries, which pay mostly in euros, say Russia has no right to reset contracts.  The G7 rejected Russia's demand and urged companies not to agree to pay in robles, saying most contracts stipulated payment in euros or dollars. Wholesale gas prices in Europe have risen further recently on concerns about potential supply disruptions.

The Kremlin spokesman said, "According to the March 31 deadline set by Russia's president, we are developing all payment methods to get a simple, understandable, and feasible system for relevant European and international buyers,"

The markets and prices of more commodities like the water reducing agent would be affected because of the volatile international political situations.

Concrete Additives:

Using concrete additives is the most effective, economical, and simple technical way to reduce the cement dosage, improve the utilization rate of industrial waste residue, and realize the high durability and performance improvement of concrete. It is a necessary material for manufacturing modern concrete. It is regarded as the third breakthrough of concrete technology after reinforced concrete and prestressed reinforced concrete. 

 

Development Course of Water Reducing Agent: 

As one of the most important concrete additives, water reducing agent plays an irreplaceable role in the development of modern concrete. Since the 1960s, Japan and Federal Germany have developed β -naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde condensates and melamine-formaldehyde condensates superplasticizer, commonly known as high efficient water reducing agent, resulting in the worldwide high efficient water reducing agent research, development, and application of the boom.

This kind of traditional polyelectrolyte water-reducing agent, including naphthalene, melamine, sulfamate, and lentisulfonate, has a good working performance for fresh concrete, has been continuously developed and applied for more than 30 years, and still occupies a certain market share. At that time, due to the limitations of their own structure and dispersive mechanism, they had a series of insurmountable problems, such as large slump, large shrinkage, and environmentally unfriendly.

Later, the development of polymer synthesis technology accelerated the development of new efficient water reducing agents. In the early 1980s, Japan took the lead in successfully developing polycarboxylate series water reducing agents. This new generation of polycarboxylate superplasticizer overcomes some disadvantages of traditional superplasticizers and has such outstanding advantages as low yield, good slump protection performance, the low shrinkage rate of concrete, and strong adjustability of molecular structure, large potential of high performance, and no use of formaldehyde in the production process. It is the developing direction of high-performance concrete admixture at present.

 

Introduction to Polycarboxylate-based High-performance Water Reducing Agent:

Polycarboxylate-based high-performance water reducing agent is defined as containing carboxylic unsaturated monomer and other monomer copolymerization. It is a type of water reducing agent with excellent performance used to help concrete with reducing water, collapse protection, strengthening, shrinkage, and environmental protection.

According to the invention patents all over the world, polycarboxylate-based high-performance water reducing agents can be divided into two categories according to the structure of the main chain: 1. Polyether with acrylic acid or methacrylic acid as the main chain grafted with different side chain lengths. 2. Polyether with maleic anhydride as the ink branch with different side-chain lengths. At present, the main differences of polycarboxylate products on the market lie in: the main chain chemical structure and length, side-chain type, length and graft density, Ionic group content, molecular weight size, and distribution. Because the molecular structure of polycarboxylate has a large degree of freedom, it possesses the potential for high performance.

The war in Russia and Ukraine is roiling global financial markets. Russia and Ukraine are important commodity suppliers in the world, so their conflict is bound to make a full impact on the global commodity supply. In view of this, the price of the water reducing agent may continue to rise in the future.
