How To Apply Concrete Admixture In Light-transmitting Concrete

- Mar 24, 2021-

Concrete is currently the most widely used building material. In the soaring concrete building, the dark and heavy concrete gives people the feeling of being trapped in a cage. People who yearn for freedom not only want to have the sense of security brought by concrete buildings, but also want to enjoy the sunshine and freedom of nature. So light-permeable concrete appeared.

Light-transmitting concrete is also called light-transmitting concrete: Thousands of optical fibers that can transmit light are mixed into the concrete to make the concrete have a translucent appearance. It can show the objects on the bright side on the concrete wall in a sharp outline, so that people in the room feel the concrete is bright and transparent.

Advantages of translucent concrete:

1. Marks and reminders: reliable marks and reminders that are not easy to wear can be provided on various types of surfaces (convex, concave, curved, and irregular surfaces) of concrete products.

2. Beautify the visual effect: direct the light from one side of the wall to the other, and the thickness and weight of the concrete wall that make people feel all at once disappeared. And through design, various artistic effects can be made.

3. Energy saving. The introduction of natural light saves a lot of artificial light energy.

How to make such wonderful concrete?

For optical fibers, any vibration or collision during the compacting process of concrete will cause displacement or even breakage. Therefore, there is a need for softer and smarter concrete for production.

A series of admixtures have been developed based on the polycarboxylic acid mother liquor based on China 3-Mercaptopropionic Acid. Under the premise of ensuring the self-tightness, low shrinkage and super slump retention of concrete, the viscosity of concrete is reduced and the viscosity is increased. The fluidity of concrete, the sensitivity of passivation to raw materials, especially the sensitivity to water consumption. It meets the requirements of light-permeable concrete to concrete: high self-tightness, high water retention, normalizes the production of light-permeable concrete, and facilitates construction and production.
