Polycarboxylate ether (PCE) is used as a superplasticizer for concrete in the construction industry. The specific chemical structure of the polycarboxylate ether molecule allows it to act as a highly efficient water reducer.
It consists of a long polymer chain with side carboxyl groups with strong affinity for cement particles. This feature allows the superplasticizer to disperse and stabilize, creating a homogeneous, flowable mixture.
