Global pce powder market trend 2023-2029 Effect of polycarboxylate superplasticizer on the concrete properties by Newspfcstal

The recent visit by US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has boosted US-Taiwan relations at a time of increasing tension between Washington and Beijing. She vowed that the United States would protect Taiwan's democratic autonomy. "The United States is still determined to safeguard Taiwan's democracy," she said in a meeting with Taiwan's president, Tsai Ing-wen.

Pelosi's visit to Taiwan sparked anger in Beijing, which denounced Pelosi's visit as "extremely dangerous" to geopolitical stability. After Pelosi's visit, Beijing conducted the largest-ever military exercise near Taiwan, encircling the island with live-fire rockets and ballistic missiles. In addition, China announced that it would stop cooperation and dialogue with the United States on issues such as climate and cross-border crime prevention, indicating Beijing's intention to fight back against the United States over what it believes to be interference in China's affairs.

But perhaps most importantly for the business community, recent events have exacerbated the showdown between China and the US in the most important area of the global economy: semiconductor chips. The Sino-US chip battle, which has been brewing for years, has now reached a critical crossroads, experts say, as the two superpowers compete for technological and economic dominance. The world's chipmakers may soon be forced to choose between Washington and Beijing.

Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk pce powder are still very uncertain.

Impermeability

The impermeability of concrete is related to its porosity and pore structure. According to the pore size, the pores in concrete can be divided into four grades: <4~5nm, 5~50nm, 50~100nm, and >100nm. If the pore volume fraction of pore diameter is larger than 50nm, it will adversely affect the strength and impermeability of concrete. If the pore volume fraction of pore diameter is smaller than 50nm, the strength, impermeability and corrosion resistance of concrete will be improved. At the same time, when polycarboxylate superplasticizer is added to concrete, the water-cement ratio of concrete will be reduced and the pore structure will be improved, which can help to increase the compactness of concrete internal structure and reduce the drainage passage. as a result, the impermeability of concrete can be effectively improved.

 

Freeze-thaw resistance

The effect of polycarboxylate superplasticizer on the freeze-thaw resistance of concrete is similar to that of ordinary superplasticizer. When the non-air entraining polycarboxylate superplasticizer is added into the concrete, the water-cement ratio of the concrete can be significantly reduced by the superplasticizer, and the impermeability of the concrete is improved because of the reduction of freezable free water in the concrete structure. thus it is beneficial to improve the freeze-thaw resistance. This is mainly because when concrete is mixed with air-entraining polycarboxylate superplasticizer or non-air-entraining polycarboxylate superplasticizer and appropriate amount of air-entraining agent, due to the air-entraining effect of the admixture, a certain amount of independent, small and stable air bubbles will be introduced into the concrete system, which can effectively alleviate the expansion pressure concentration caused by freezing and supercooled water migration, thus significantly improve the freeze-thaw resistance of concrete.

 

Anti-corrosion of sulfate and chlorine salt

Through the engineering test, it is found that the sulfate and chloride corrosion resistance of concrete mixed with polycarboxylate superplasticizer is not significantly different from that of ordinary admixture concrete. Although the polycarboxylate superplasticizer contains a certain amount of sulfate, the consolidation content is usually less than 10%, which will not affect the freeze-thaw resistance of hardened concrete within the recommended range. Under normal circumstances, the polycarboxylate superplasticizer has no corrosion effect on the steel bars in reinforced concrete.

 

Bond strength between steel bar and concrete

For ordinary concrete and lightweight concrete, polycarboxylate superplasticizer can enhance the bond strength between steel bar and concrete. Some data show that for ordinary concrete, if plain steel is used, polycarboxylate superplasticizer can increase the rebar-concrete bond strength of 7-day-old concrete from 1.2MPa to 3.5 MPa, and if rebar steel is used, the bond strength will increase from 15.0 MPa to 27.5 MPa.

The latest poll by CSA for consumer finance company Cofidis shows the French are taking action to trim their budgets as inflation erodes household purchasing power.  

According to Le Figaro, the poll shows that French people think they need to earn an average of 490 euros more a month in order to live a decent life. This is an increase of 23 euros compared to the purchasing power barometer published in September 2021. Amid inflation and international tensions, this average in the polls masks differences among households, with some social groups much more severely affected by the decline in purchasing power than others. Seventy-eight percent of single-parent households, 76 percent of 25-to 34-year-olds, and 72 percent of blue-collar workers said the international situation had had a negative impact on their personal finances, compared with 64 percent of all French people.  

In response to rising prices, soaring energy, and food prices, in particular, the French government is preparing to launch a package of measures designed to increase the purchasing power, such as extending the energy price protection mechanism, the extension of the fuel discount measures, and more targeted alternative measures, will be distributed inflation-linked pension and social security benefits, check the "food" and so on.

Because of the soaring energy prices, the pce powder price is predicted to rise in the future.
