Commodity prices are on track for their biggest rally in more than a century, while fixed-income assets have seen their longest run of outflows as the war in Ukraine adds to inflationary pressures in the global economy emerging from the coronavirus lockdown, according to Bank of America.
"Commodity prices this year are on track to record their biggest gains since 1915." the bank said in its weekly briefing. They cite many factors, such as pandemics, lockdown, civil strife, wars, excessive monetary and fiscal stimulus, and supply chain disruptions, that have led to "historically" high inflation.
By the same token, it said government bonds were heading for their worst year since 1949, and "negative-yielding bonds will quietly disappear" from the market as central banks embark on a monetary tightening cycle and raise interest rates to tame soaring inflation.
The prices of many commodities like the concrete water reducer are expected to increase in the future.
Where Can the Water Reducer be Applied?
The concrete water reducer is suitable for the pumping or normal concrete engineering with a strength grade of C15 to C60 or above. It is especially suitable for concrete projects with high durability, high flow state, high slump protection, high strength, and high appearance quality requirements. It is very beneficial to the preparation of high fluidity concrete, self-compacting concrete, and plain-faced concrete.
Ordinary water-reducing agents should be used for daily minimum temperature above 5℃ construction of concrete. High efficient water-reducing agents are suitable for daily minimum temperature above 0℃ construction of concrete, and suitable for the preparation of large fluidity concrete, high strength concrete, and steam curing concrete.
How to Use the Water Reducer?
Polycarboxylate High-performance Water Reducer:
1, The dosage is 0.5%~2.0% of the total weight of the cementitious material, and the commonly used dosage is 0.2% ~ 0.5%. The concrete test should be carried out before use in order to optimize the dosage;
2, It cannot be used with the naphthalene system high-efficient water reducing agent compound, and other admixtures should also be used in advance of concrete compatibility experiment;
3, Water consumption must be strictly controlled when using, because it affects slump.
4, Pay attention to concrete surface maintenance.
Naphthalene Series High-efficient Water Reducer:
1, Dosage range: powder: 0.75%-1.5%; liquid: 1.5 to 2.5%.
2, When using porous aggregate water should first be added and stirred, and then water reducer is added.
3, When the slump is large, the vibration time should not be too long, so that bleeding and stratification could be prevented.
HSB Aliphatic Superplasticizer
1. Find out the best dosage through experiments. The recommended dosage is 1.5-2%;
2, Add HSB and water together into concrete.
3. Due to the high water-reduction rate of HSB, a layer of yellow slurry will be secreted on the surface of the concrete before the initial setting, which is a normal phenomenon. Finished concrete slurry wipe light, the color will be eliminated, or in concrete strength, the color will naturally eliminate, watering and maintenance color will be eliminated faster. It does not affect the inner and surface performance of concrete.
Suppliers of Concrete Additives
The water reducer with stable quality should be selected. There should be good compatibility between water reducing agent and cement and admixture. When a variety of admixtures with different functions are used in combination, there should be good adaptability between admixtures and between admixtures and cement.

As the duration of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine grows, its impact on commodities is widening amid the tug-of-war. Recently, European and American sanctions against Russia have been issued one after another. In response, Russia has taken advantage of its role as an important supplier of many energy and commodities, requiring exports of commodities, including energy, grain, metal, and wood, to "unfriendly" countries to be settled in robles. Therefore, it is expected that the price of the concrete water reducer will continue to increase.
