Report on Chemical Admixtures for Concrete (212.3R-10) Chemical admixtures, which are primarily water-soluble substances, are discussed in detail and, in this report, are classified into 13 groups. Chemical admixtures are used on a daily basis in the cast-in-place and precast concrete industries. Twelve categories of admixtures are described in detail as to type, current usage, and their effect on concrete in the plastic and hardened state. Their benefits and common usage are outlined.
