What are Admixtures and What are Different Types of Admixtures? | Bisley International

Admixture is defined as a material besides concrete ingredients like aggregates, water, cement, and sand, mixed with the concrete to improve some of its properties in a hardened or fresh state. The concrete properties that are commonly modified are the setting times, workability, air entrainment, dispersion, and rate of hydration. If you’re looking for superior-quality concrete admixtures, look no further … Read More

What is Admixture in Construction? | Bisley International

Concrete is one of the most widely used construction materials globally. Generally, it’s prepared by mixing four ingredients—cement, water, sand, and aggregate. But this mixture is just regular concrete and doesn’t have any unique properties to satisfy modern construction needs. That said, admixture in construction is the addition of natural or artificial materials to concrete mixes to improve their quality.  At Bisley, … Read More

What is Lithium Acetate Used For?

Bisley InternationalFAQs

Lithium acetate is a salt made from acetic acid and lithium. The chemical symbol of the salt is LiCH3CO2. Lithium acetate is formed through the neutralization process of acetic acid, CH3CO2H (a weak acid), and lithium hydroxide LiOH (H2O) n (a strong base). Like any neutralization reaction between a base and an acid, water is one of the by-products of … Read More

Common uses of Potassium Silicate

Bisley InternationalFAQs

Potassium Silicate is the term used for a group of inorganic compounds. Inorganic compounds, in case you’re wondering, are bonds that don’t use hydrogen-carbon bonds to create the compound. Clever chemists melt potassium carbonate and pure silica sand together, then super cool it to form potassium silicate. Common silicates, like sodium silicate, take the form of white rocky powder or … Read More

How Does Lithium Densifier Work?

Bisley InternationalFAQs

Concrete densifiers transform concrete, masonry, and cement-based products into mass solid. Concrete with no densifiers is porous. The penetrating qualities of the densifier offer effective deep sealing, thereby improving the chemical properties of a cement (calcium silicate hydrate). The concrete sealers create a floor surface that is easy to clean and maintain. The chemical reaction hardens and strengthens the solid … Read More
