Water Reducer

Polycarboxylate, also known as high-performance water reducer or PCE based on polycarboxylic acid, is a third-generation chemical polymer used in concrete applications. Compared to traditional fluidizing agents based on lignin, melamine, and naphthalene, the polycarboxylic acid-based water reducer offers unique advantages for producing high-performance concrete.
The excellent dispersion of PCE increases the water-reducing capacity and decreases cement content. The high flow of concrete by PCE enables manufacture of high-flow self-leveling concrete. It also provides excellent workability and maintenance performance without delaying hardening, helping to transport high-performance concrete within required time limits. Ultimately, PCE dramatically improves the compressive strength of concrete.
