Abstract:This third report of ACI Committee PIP, Admixtures for Concrete, updates the previous reports of 1944 and 1954. In this report admixtures are classified in 15 groups according to type of materials constituting the admixtures, to the characteristic effects of their use. Where an admixture possesses properties identifiable with more than one group it is discussed with the group that describes its most important effect on concrete. Types of admixtures discussed are: (1) acceleratingi (2) water-reducing and set-controlling; (3) grouting, (4) air-entraining; (5) air-detraining (6) gas-form ing; (7) expansion-producing; (8) finely divided mineral; <9) damp-proofing and permeability-reducing] (10) bonding; (11) alkali-aggregate-expansion-reducing] (19) corrosion-inhibiting; (13) fun icidal germicidal, and insecticidal; (14) flocculating; an j (1 5 ) koloring.
