LONDON, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Concrete superplasticizers, are chemical formulations which are used in construction of residential, non-residential and infrastructure buildings which help increase the durability and strength of the structures being constructed. These additives are used for variety of purposes which include better water reducing capability, improving the strength and effectiveness of concrete. The main purpose of using superplasticizers is to produce free flowing concrete with high slump. The other major application is the production of high-strength concrete at water to cement ratios ranging from 0.3 to 0.4 . The main factor owing to the growth of this industry is flowing investments in the construction sector, which is forecast to double over the next five years. Construction superplasticizers are essential for high quality concrete and for promoting the improvement of concrete performance. They also increase the life of construction work and impart additional protection to the buildings by improving their durable life.
