Construction chemicals are the chemical formulations between cement, concrete, and other building material to bind them together at the time or before the time of construction. These construction chemicals are widely used in the construction of residential, commercial industries, commercial building, and infrastructure. The Asia Pacific region own the largest market share for construction chemical products, follow up is Europe and North America. Since the reform and opening up of China, the country construction industry has developed unprecedentedly and construction market is vigorously in demand. The increase in demand and functionality building has pushed forward the need of new building materials like construction chemical to counter the demand.
IntroductionConstruction chemical product has developed into one of the most important buildings material together with wood, cement, and steel. Construction chemical is new categories of building materials which include building plastics, architectural coatings, building waterproofing, sealing materials, thermal & sound insulation materials, building adhesives, concrete admixtures, etc. New Building material like Acrylic Surface Coatings, Polyvinyl Chloride(PVC) Profiles; windows, doors, pipes, polyethylene, polystyrene, polyurethane insulation, etc is the result of construction chemical.
Construction chemicals can be classified into four general type:
Adhesives and sealants
ApplicationsConcrete admixtures are one of the most use construction chemicals. The admixtures have a major effect on the properties of concrete product or concrete itself in workability, strength, weight, permeability, shrinkage, durable and chemical resistance. Admixture improves the overall workability of concrete which results in cost saving too. The most often used admixtures are water reducers, water-reducing retarders, air-entraining admixtures, and accelerators. Most of the admixtures for concrete are usually used to overcome the difficulty in construction usage, such as temperature fluctuates, pumping requirements, early strength or soft requirement or low water-cement requirement. Air-entraining admixtures are added to the batch concrete to reduce the damage that causes by low temperature fluctuate of the environment. Water reducers are used to increase the strength of concrete by reducing the required water. Retarders are used mostly on hot climate or whether to counter rapid curing and setting of concrete which allowing more time to work on it. Accelerators are usually used for fast construction requirement that allows the concrete setting faster and gains in strength. Above all, you should always consult the mixture supplier or professional because of the complication of admixtures and complexity requirement of construction.
