Stabilizing structures

Cement, sand, gravel and water – these are the basic components of concrete. To ensure that it is stable and easy to process, concrete admixtures, such as plasticizers, air-entraining agents, retarders, accelerators or stabilizers, are added to these components. The electron microscopic image shows the high-performance stabilizer Rheo-MATRIX® 100, whose water soluble polymers independently organize them into a matrix. Magnification 1 250 :1 (12cm in width)
