Ready-mix concrete-major market for superplasticizers
The Concrete Superplasticizers Market is segmented into five types: Sulfonated naphthalene formaldehydes (SNF), sulfonated melamine formaldehydes (SMF), modified lignosulfonates (MLS), polycarboxylic acids (PC), and others. Each type of superplasticizer has its own properties and applications. These individual superplasticizers have application specific demands that are differentiated by placement, cost, and efficiency.
