Lime saltpetreСа(NО3)2 x 2Н2О
Commercial grade calcium nitrate is a polyfunctional (depending on the dosage) concrete additive with properties which allow products usage in the function of:
Assumed temperature of concrete solidification
Dosage of calcium nitrate in the cement mass
|up to -10 оС
|up to -15 оС
|up to 2 %
|up to -20 оС
|up to 3-4 %
|up to -25 оС
|up to 5 %
Calcium nitrate can be used both individually and in the combination with carbamide (urea) which at the same time plasticizes the concrete mixture.
Calcium nitrate application benefits
“Buyskiy Himicheskiy zavod” produces calcium nitrate “type A” in the form of double ammonium salts: Ca5NH4(NO3)11*10H2O. Ammonium form of calcium nitrate can be used in the concrete mixture that only should be applied outdoors or in buildings with exhaust ventilation because in case of a solution and concrete interaction-free ammonia is emitting (during winter the preparation mostly applied in the process of premixed concrete manufacturing). Presence of ammonium ions in the composition of calcium nitrate is connected to the technology of its production and allows manufacturing of the product with low hydration water content (19%) in comparison with Ca(NO3)2*4H2O (30,5%) and increase product’s melting temperature.
