Global early strength agent market trend 2022-2030 Differences between Early Strength Agents and Accelerating Agents by Newsit-chuiko

The purchasing pace at the demand end of the international thermal coal market continues to slow down and the international thermal coal price continues to decline. Prices for thermal coal at major international ports continued to fall last week as buyers in Europe slowed in recent days for April, coupled with weaker-than-expected import demand from End users in China. According to China Coal Market net monitoring:  Australia Newcastle port thermal coal price index was 253 USD/ton, compared with 309.02 USD/ton, down 56.02 USD/ton, down 18.13%. South Africa's Port Richards thermal coal price Index was $264.5 / mt, down the US $62.72 / mt or 19.17% from US $327.22 / mt. The European ARA Tri-port thermal coal price Index was $281.8 / ton. Does the price of thermal coal in major international ports continue to decline to affect the price of the early strength agent? 

Definition:

Accelerating agent is to point to the admixture that can make concrete condenses quickly after concrete hardening. 

Early strength agent refers to the admixture which can improve the early strength of concrete and has no significant effect on the late strength. 

 

Classification:

The main types of accelerating agent:

alkali earth metal carbonate and alkali earth metal hydroxide, silicate alkali (sodium silicate) sodium silicate, potassium silicate accelerating agent, sodium aluminate, potassium aluminate accelerating agent, alkali free liquid accelerating agent. 

Early strength agents can be divided into:

strong electrolyte inorganic salts, water-soluble organic compounds, organic and inorganic compound early strength agents according to their chemical composition. 

 

Main ingredients 

The main ingredient of accelerating agent is aluminum oxide clinker (namely bauxite, soda, quicklime according to the proportion of the clinker fired) by grinding and made. 

Early strength agent in addition to chlorine salt and sulfate nitrite, chromate and other organic compounds such as triethanolamine, calcium formate, urea and so on. 

 

Uses

Accelerating agent dosage accounts for only 4% ~ 6% of cement dosage in concrete, but can make concrete in 5min initial coagulation, 10min final coagulation. In order to achieve the purpose of rush repair or fast condensation of concrete in the tunnel. It is an indispensable additive in shotcrete construction method. Their function is to speed up the hydration and hardening of cement, forming sufficient strength in a very short period of time to ensure the requirements of special construction. 

 

Early strength agent does not contain chloride ion, no corrosion of steel bar, applicable to all civil and industrial buildings and prestressed reinforced concrete members, mortar and so on. It is most suitable for construction under low temperature in early winter and early spring. Used in Portland cement, slag cement is particularly significant in strengthening and modifying. 

 

Note:

Accelerating agent should not be added while material is mixed, because stones, sand contains a lot of water, accelerating agent in a short time of water absorption in the non-spraying decomposition of its rapid setting components, affecting the setting time, reducing the strength of concrete, it will lead to the adverse effect of spraying concrete. Before use, the cement used in the project should be tested, and the dosage can be used in large quantities. 

 

Early strength agent dosage is 3-6% of cement. In order to keep the quality of concrete mixed with this agent uniform, mixing time to extend 1-2 minutes. Concrete mixed with early strength agent cannot use orthopedic active minerals (such as opal). If problems such as damp agglomerate arise, the agent must be crushed or weathered, and its performance will be unchanged.

The resurgence of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the impact of the Russia-Ukraine conflict continued to cause high volatility in commodity prices. Stubbornly high inflation and rising commodity prices are likely to influence each other and thus push each other higher. The price of the early strength agent may not decrease significantly in the short term.
