Plasticizers (also commonly referred to as surfactants) are designed to wet out the constituents in concrete and improve the workability or flow ability of the concrete, resulting in improved densities and productivity, i.e. faster mold or machine fill times.
Super plasticizers, a specific class of plasticizers, include water-reducing admixtures, which are based on polycarboxylate and polyacrylate chemistries. Water reducers are admixtures that allow water reduction, thereby increasing strength and providing greater flow ability without substantially slowing set time or increasing air entrainment.
