Concrete Admixtures - Types and Functions - Cement Concrete

Feb 02, 2020  A 0.5% concentration of admixture by weight of cement can increase slump from 25mm to 100 mm. (iii) BY the addition of the admixture, concrete with the same workability and compressive strength can be obtained at lower cement content. A 0.5% concentration of admixture by weight of cement may require 15% less cement.
