RETARDERS FOR CONCRETE, AND THEIR EFFECTS ON SETTING TIME AND SHRINKAGE

SIXTY-FIVE PURE CHEMICALS AND THREE PROPRITZRY RETARDERS WERE TESTED IN THE PENETRATION TEST FOR SETTING TIME AT CONCENTRATIONS AT OR AROUND 0.1 PERCENT OF THE CEMENT. THE MOST EFFECTIVE RETARDERS HAD SEVERAL, CLOSELY-GROUPED OXYGEN ATOMS IN HYDROXYL, CARBOXYL, OR CARBONYL GROUPS. SOME OF THE RETARDERS WERE USED IN THE FABRICATION OF 0.2 X 0.2 X 4-IN. BARS OF CEMENT PASTE, WHICH WERE SUBSEQUENTLY OVEN-DRIED AND THE SHRINKAGE, NON-EVAPORABLE WATER CONTENT, AND SPECIFIC SURFACE OF THE PASTE WAS DETERMINED. THE RETARDERS CAUSED A CHANGE IN THE SHRINKAGE THAT WAS PARALLELED BY A CHANGE IN THE SPECIFIC SURFACE OF THE PASTE. /AUTHOR/
