Polycarboxylate ether (PCE) is composed of methoxy-polyethylene glycol copolymer (side chain) grafted with methacrylic acid copolymer (main chain). It is commonly used in the construction industries, especially as superplasticizer in cement and concrete. Superplasticizer admixtures are used for the improvements they make in the rheological properties of fresh concrete. High water reducing ability, easy to use with any cement grade, faster recycle of formwork, owing to accelerated early strength development are some of the advantages of polycarboxylate ether.
