Formula Analysis of Construction Additive
What is construction additive?
Construction additive is auxiliary chemical added during the industrial production process to improve production process, product quality or productivity, or endow a product a special application property. Common construction additives are: Benzene board clay agent, pumping agent, slip agent, waterproofing agent, curing agent, brightener, retarder, cement grinding agent, cement foam agent, early strength agent, reinforcing agent, flame retardant, water reducing agent etc.

Common questions for construction additive
The ingredient of an other additive in construction materials
Which additive can suppress foam in construction glue or putty powder?
Which additive shall be added when producing construction glue?
What ingredients are composed of construction anticoagulatant?
The formula of additives of concretes?
The questions above mentioned could be identified through a large number of experiments which may take you a lot of time and human and material resources. However, Ingeer Technical Service Department takes only 12 work days to analyze unknown formula and will provide you with a perfect solution.

Detailed explanations for construction additives
1 Cement foaming agent: a kind of additive that can reduce the surface tension of liquid, give rise to plenty of homogeneous and stable foams and it is often used as an additive to produce foams in concrete. Cement foaming agents can be classified into 5 types according to their components: rosin resin, synthetic surfactant, protein, composite and others. It can be used in magnesia cement and concrete.
2 Cement waterproofing agent: a kind of chemical additive added in cement, when the cement begins setting and hardening, its volume expands to compensate contraction and prestress arisen in steel being stretched. It can be used in water proofing engineering of basements, bathrooms, reservoirs, purifying ponds, tunnels, roofs, roof coverings, grounds, walls etc. Construction waterproofing agents are often advanced fatty acid salts.
3 Retarder: it is also called retarding water reducer, which is an additive to lengthen concrete’ condensation time and it have no obvious influence on long-term strength. The main components are polyol chemical, hydroxyl carboxylate, and its derivative, high sugar lignosulfonate. Besides, some inorganic salts such as zinc chloride, borate, and various phosphates also have retarding function. Retarder is applied in continuous concrete at high temperature, bulk concrete, premixed concrete and pump concrete.
4 Water reducer: Water reducer is a kind of additive that can reduce water consumption and improve concrete’ strength in the situation of the consumption of concrete and cement unchanged; It can be classified into sugar lignosulfonate type, polycyclic aromatic salt type, water soluble resin sulfonate type.
5 Early strength agent: Early strength agent refers to a kind of additive that can increase concrete’ early strength and has no obvious influence of long-term strength. It can be classified as follows based on its chemical components: strong electrolyte inorganic salt, water solube organic, organic and inorganic composite.
6 Flame retardant: Flame retardant is a kind of additive that prevents materials being ignited or restrains flame spreading. Most flame retardants are compounds of the II、V、VII elements in the periodic table and compounds of phosphorus, chlorine, bromine, aluminum and antimony are common used. Flame retardants are highly favored by companies as it can effectively prevent plastic products and textiles from catching fire and they are commonly used industrially.

Technical methods for analyzing construction agent
  Analysis of construction agent is normally performed using spectrum (ultraviolet, infrared, nuclear magnetism), chromatography (gas chromatography, liquid chromatography, ion chromatography), mass spectrum (MS, GC-MS, LC-MS), energy spectrum (fluorescence spectrum, diffraction spectrum), thermography (thermogravimetry analyzer, differential scanning calorimeter) to analyze quality and quantity for all the components of the sample for the purpose of determining their structure and obtaining a full understanding.
Instrument utilized in analyzing construction agent
  Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer: most simple, convenient and rapid instrument for determining quality of unknown substance
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance machine: effective instrument for measuring chemical shifts of H, C, P, Si in molecule and for qualitative and quantitative analysis of unknown substance
  Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer: precise instrument for qualitative analysis of unknown substance
