An admixture is a material added to the batch of concrete before or during its mixing to modify its freshly mixed, setting or hardened properties. About 80% of concrete produced in North America has one or more admixtures. And 70% of the concrete produced contains a water-reducer admixture. You can easily see the importance of these products for today’s engineers.

One very common admixture is used in about 40% of ready-mix products. This course will reveal the substance, its source, and the reason it is such a predominant admixture. It will also discuss the two main groups of admixtures and the effects of many of the most common of these substances.

Even if you work with concrete on only an occasional basis, the information contained in the course will help you to better understand the product and its use.
