Aluminium buyers in the US physical metal market have held off on new orders amid fears of a recession triggered by rising inflation and supply chain crises.
Spot aluminium trading on the market has been suspended in recent weeks, according to industry sources, as uncertainty has increased following the outbreak of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine. Even before the war, the aluminium market was suffering from long waiting times and weak demand.
For aluminium buyers, recent poor US economic data have been a big factor in delaying purchases. Data released last month showed that the ISM manufacturing PMI came in at 57.1 in March, below expectations of 59 and down from 58.6 in February, unexpectedly hitting the lowest reading since September 2020. This was mainly due to a slowdown in new orders and water reducer,water reducing agent ,concrete admixtures are expected to increase in the future.
The application of various concrete admixtures can not only improve the performance of concrete, but also promote the development of new concrete technologies, promote the application of industrial by-products in cementitious material systems, and also help save resources and protect the environment. , has gradually become an essential material for high-quality concrete. Among them, the water reducing agent is a kind of concrete, and the water reducing agent is a concrete admixture that can reduce the mixing water consumption under the condition that the concrete slump is basically unchanged. Most of them are anionic surfactants, such as lignosulfonate, naphthalene sulfonate formaldehyde polymer, etc. When we add the concrete mixture, it has a dispersing effect on the cement particles, which can improve its workability, reduce the unit water consumption, and improve the fluidity of the concrete mixture; or reduce the unit cement consumption, effectively saving cement.
The specific operation method of the water reducing agent formula for concrete:
1. Maleic anhydride is prepared into a 5-7% solution according to the required amount and recorded as the head material.
2. The initiator is prepared into a 5-10% solution for later use.
3. Add the required amount of APEG or TPEG, heat to liquefy it, and then add the headstock.
4. Nitrogen replacement;
5. When the temperature rises to 75-85°C, the initiator is added dropwise, and the dropwise addition is completed at 80°C for 1.5-2 hours.
6. After the dropwise addition of the initiator is completed, keep the temperature at 80-90° C. for 4-4.5 hours to complete the reaction and cool down.
7. When the temperature drops to 40-50℃, add 50% KOH solution to neutralize to PH: 7-8.
8. After measuring the solid content, add the measured soft water according to the required solid content.
9. After the solid content is determined to be qualified, discharge the material.
After the above experiments, we can get the basic formula of water reducer for concrete:
Concrete water reducer formula 1:
Hydroxyethyl acrylate: 25g, acrylamide: 5g, allyl polyoxyethylene ether: 175g, sodium persulfate: 10g, neutralized by sodium hydroxide.
Concrete water reducer formula 2:
Allyl polyoxyethylene glycol ether: 40 g, acrylic monomer: 30 g, 10% ammonium persulfate aqueous solution 40 g, neutralized with triethanolamine.
Concrete water reducer formula 3:
Allyl polyoxyethylene glycol ether: 100 g, methacrylic acid: 70 g, acrylic acid: 20 g, 10% aqueous ammonium persulfate solution: 50 g, neutralized with sodium hydroxide.
Concrete water reducer formula 4:
Methacrylic acid: 25g:, allyl polyoxyethylene ether: 175g, sodium persulfate: 10g. , neutralized with sodium hydroxide.
Concrete water reducer formula 5:
TPEG: 180 g, hydrogen peroxide: 0.63 g, thioglycolic acid: 0.56 g, ascorbic acid: 0.3 g, acrylic acid: 182.3 g, neutralized with sodium hydroxide.
Concrete water reducer formula 6:
APEG: 180 g, hydrogen peroxide: 10 g, thioglycolic acid: 2.07 g, itaconic acid: 10 g, methacrylic acid: 21.23 g, neutralized with sodium hydroxide.

Due to the Russia-Ukraine conflict and the covid-19 pandemic, how will the international situation develop is highly uncertain. It is too difficult to assess its economic impact properly. However, we could see energy prices and commodity prices keep rising and supply chains are disrupted. Therefore, water reducer,water reducing agent ,concrete admixtures prices are expected to rise in the future.
