1)Plasticizers: Reducing the amount of water in a concrete mix has several advantages, the main one being that higher concrete strength can be achieved if less water is used relative to the amount 

of cement in the mix. But less water in the mix also means the concrete can become difficult to work with. These admixtures allow the amount of water to be reduced and at the same time provide the extra lubrication the mix needs for concrete to stay workable. Less water also means that using these concrete admixtures allows the amount of water to be reduced. So it,s helpful to consider using one of these admixtures if you are working on a project where there is time pressure. The difference between a plasticizer and a superplasticizer relates to the amount of water that can be omitted from the concrete mix.Concrete admixture supplier in Lahore is providing best services.
