Özet

Nowadays especially, in ready-mixed concrete plants utilization of chemical admixtures is very common. Chemical admixtures improve the properties of concrete. If they used unconsciously results should be detrimental. A public survey has performed in Eskisehir to determine the types of chemical admixtures, which are used in concrete companies, the consciousness of using chemical admixtures, their experiences and suggestions for chemical admixtures. It can be seen from public survey results plasticizer are common for concrete production than other admixtures. Before utilization of chemical admixtures concrete producers perform pre-experimental studies. According to these studies the admixture content is determined for production. It can be seen from results, all ready-mix concrete producers uses chemical admixtures in concrete production.
