Global Water reducer market trend 2023-2026 What is Water Reducer? by Newswrigleyfieldnews

The roble had hit a record low after the West imposed sweeping sanctions on Russia for its aggression in Ukraine. Russia's president recently ordered exports of Russian gas to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. The speaker of Russia's upper house of parliament said Moscow was prepared and could shift supplies to markets such as Asia if Europe refused to buy Russian energy.

European countries, which pay mostly in euros, say Russia has no right to reset contracts.  The G7 rejected Russia's demand and urged companies not to agree to pay in robles, saying most contracts stipulated payment in euros or dollars. Wholesale gas prices in Europe have risen further recently on concerns about potential supply disruptions.

The Kremlin spokesman said, "According to the March 31 deadline set by Russia's president, we are developing all payment methods to get a simple, understandable, and feasible system for relevant European and international buyers,"

The markets and prices of more commodities like the Water reducer would be affected because of the volatile international political situations.

Introduction to Water Reducer:

Water reducer, or water reducing agent, concrete water reducer, cement water reducer, is a special chemical product added to the concrete mixture before pouring, belonging to a kind of concrete admixture. A concrete admixture is a chemical that is added during the concrete-making process to improve concrete performance. Admixtures in concrete are small (no more than 5%) but indispensable. The compound water reducing agent is mainly used in ready-mixed concrete, which is used in infrastructure construction and real estate construction.

According to the water reduction rate, the water reducer is divided into ordinary water reducer (the first generation), efficient water reducer (the second generation), and polycarboxylic acid (also known as superplasticizer) high-performance water reducer (the third generation).

The first generation of water reducer is lignosulfonates, which have been used since the 1930s and are cheap products derived from the wood and paper industries. 

Due to the excellent slump performance and environmental protection and pollution-free processing process, the polycarboxylic acid series water-reducing agent quickly replace the naphthalene series water-reducing agent has become the mainstream water-reducing agent at present, the production of polycarboxylic acid series water-reducing agent has accounted for nearly 80%. 

 

Production Process of Water Reducer:

High-performance water reducing agents and efficient water reducing agents are compounded by their mother liquor, the raw materials of their mother liquor are polyether monomer and industrial naphthalene, polyether monomer also need to be further synthesized by ethylene oxide.  Industrial naphthalene is produced from coal chemicals, and there are currently three ways to produce ethylene oxide, including petrochemical, coal-chemical, and alcohol processes. 

There are some technical barriers to chemical synthesis and physical compounding of the two main production processes of water-reducing agents.

Chemical synthesis involves polymerization technology in the field of polymer chemistry. In the research and development and production of products, relatively professional personnel are required, and long-term technical experience and industrial scale-up production experience are required.

 

Advantages of Water Reducer:

Under the condition of constant cement content, the water reducer can reduce water consumption and improve concrete strength. Under the condition of constant workability and strength, the admixture of cement dosage can be saved. 

1. Reduce water content by 5-10%;

2. Reduce the porosity of concrete;

3. Increase concrete strength by up to 25% (because the concrete mixture requires less water to remain processable);

4. Increased workability (assuming free water remains constant);

5. Reduced water permeability (due to less water used);

6. Reduce the diffusion of the corrosive agent in concrete, so as to improve the durability of concrete;

7. Provide a better finish to the surface.

Because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, there is a shortage of natural gas supply. At the same time, other renewable energy sources cannot produce enough electricity, so electricity prices have soared in many countries of the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the Water reducer would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
