Using Molasses in Concrete As A Time Retarding Admixture
International Journal of Engineering Research and
Molasses is a by-product recovered from the sugar refining process, due to molasses increases the fluidity of fresh concrete and also delays the hardening time of cement paste. In this study the molasses were determined from sugar production factories. Setting times of concrete prepared with molasses at three different dosage (0.40, 0.60, and 0.80 wt. % of cement content) were determined and it was found that molasses addition causes considerable increase in both initial and final setting time.doi:10.17577/ijertv6is110189 fatcat:sjeajreaeras3glzhovzdgcsuy
