This standard replaces GB 8076-1997 Concrete Admixture and it differs from GB 8076
- 1997 in the following aspects.
--- Add high performance water reducer and pumping admixture; formulate technical
requirements and test methods;
--- Add Chapter “Codes of product”;
--- Classify high performance water reducer, high efficiency water reducer and
ordinary water reducer; namely, a certain type of admixture may be divided into
accelerating reducer, standard reducer and retarding reducer;
--- Delete “qualified product”, adjust the product technical index based on the
performance index of former Class I product;
--- Adjust technical indexes (such as solid content, water content and density etc.)
of uniformity items by referring to EN 934-2.2001 and JIS A 6204. 2006; Add
concrete test items for some products (for instance. slump and air content
change in one-hour duration);
--- Delete testing method on reinforcing steel rust in the former standard; establish
test method – use chromatography of ions to measure chloride ion content in
concrete admixture;
--- Improve the specific area of reference cement being that is specially used in
concrete admixture performance inspection.

This Standard is applicable to high performance water reducer (accelerating, standard
and retarding reducers), high efficiency water reducer (standard and retarding
reducers), ordinary water reducer (accelerating, standard and retarding reducers), air-
entraining water reducer, pumping admixture, early strength admixture, retarder and
air-entraining admixture, eight in total.

text, constitute provisions of this standard. For dated reference, subsequent
amendments (excluding correction) to, or revisions of, any of these publications do not
apply. However, parties to agreements based on this standard are encouraged to
investigate the possibility of applying the most recent editions of the standards

6.1.4 Water
It shall meet the technical requirements for water consumption of concrete mixing
specified in JGJ 63.
6.1.5 Admixtures
The admixtures that need to be inspected.
6.2 Mixing proportion
Reference concrete mixing proportion is designed according to JGJ 55. The proportion
of test concrete added with non-air-entraining admixture shall be the same with that of
cement, sand and crushed-stone of the corresponding reference concrete. Mixing
proportion design shall meet the following provisions.
a) Cement consumption. per unit cement consumption of reference concrete and
test concrete mixed with high performance water reducer or pumping admixture
is 360 kg/m3; and per unit cement consumption of reference concrete and test
concrete mixed with other admixtures is 330 kg/m3.
b) Sand ratio. sand ratio of both reference concrete and test concrete mixed with
high performance water reducer or pumping admixture is 43% ~ 47%; sand ratio
of reference concrete and test concrete mixed with other admixtures is 36% ~
40%; but the sand ratio of test concrete added with air-entraining water reducer
or air-entraining admixture shall be 1% ~ 3% less than that of reference concrete.
c) Admixture amount to be added. it is added according to manufacturer's
d) Water consumption. slump of reference concrete and test concrete added with
high performance water reducer or pumping admixture is controlled to be
(210±10)mm; the water consumption is minimum when slump is (210±10)mm;
slump of reference concrete and test concrete mixed with other admixtures is
controlled to be (80±10) mm.
Water consumption includes the water content contained in liquid admixture, sand and
6.3 Concrete mixing
Adopt the single-lay-shaft forced blender with nominal capacity of 60L and that meets
the requirements stipulated in JG 3036. The mixing amount of blender shall neither be
less than 20L nor greater than 45L.
When admixture is in powder, then, put the cement, sand, crushed-stone and
6.5.1 Measurement of slump and slump change in one-hour duration
One sample is taken from each concrete lot. Both slump and slump change in one-
hour duration are represented by the mean value of three test results. Among the three
test results, if either the maximum value or minimum value exceeds 10mm from the
medium value, then both the maximum and minimum values shall be abolished, and
the medium value is taken as the test result of this lot; when both maximum value and
minimum value exceeds 10mm from the medium value, then test shall be carried out
Measured value of slump and slump change in one-hour duration is represented by
mm, and the result is rounded-off to 5mm. Slump measurement
Concrete slump is measured in accordance with GB/T 50080; w...
