To design and build state-of-the-art concrete structures, you need access to the latest information on materials and materials research.

Bringing together the combined expertise of the chemical admixtures, cement, and concrete industries, Superplasticizers and Other Chemical Admixtures in Concrete will provide the answers you need on these important concrete admixtures. A collection of 33 papers, this ACI publication presents the latest findings on topics such as: superplasticizers--a global review with emphasis on durability and innovative concretes; reuse of returned concrete by hydration control; superplasticizers and concrete durability; evaluation of superplasticizers in concrete; chemical admixtures in concrete platforms; superplasticized concrete containing blast furnace slag; slump control with reactive polymeric dispersant; and physiochemical characterization of superplasticizers.
