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.
Types of High-efficient Water Reducers
Polycyclic aromatic sulfonates
It has the advantages of low cost and high water reduction rate and has the defects of more serious collapse loss of mixing products. In use, you can add retarding components to compound use or choose such water reducer with sustained-release performance to reduce the loss of collapse and ensure the performance of high efficient water reducer.
Water-soluble resin sulfonates
Mainly for sulfonated melamine resin, and sulfonated ancient code long resin. This kind of water reducer and cement compatibility is better, and other water reducer mixed-use can also maintain good compatibility. Practice shows that this kind of water reducer has a low dosage but high water reducing rate and excellent performance. In a certain proportion, the water-reducing rate increases with the increase of water adding amount. Once the dosage exceeds the critical proportion, the retarding effect on concrete is obvious. Such plasticizer shall not be mixed with a lignosulfonate plasticizer.
There are mainly polycarboxylic acid, polyacrylic acid salt. This kind of water reducer is different from traditional water reducer, so it is necessary to understand its mechanism accurately and use it cautiously.
Other types are represented by modified calcium lignosulfonate and modified tannin
When a variety of water reducers are used together, attention should be paid to their mutual influence. In addition to the simple water-reducing performance, the compound water reducer can also have the characteristics of quick setting, early strength, anti-freezing, etc., according to the purpose of use.
In the process of cement mixing, flocculent particles are attracted to each other due to the existence of molecular attraction, and a flocculation structure is formed. Flocculation encapsulates part of the water used for mixing and reduces the workability of the concrete mixture.
The efficient water reducer has hydrophobic and hydrophilic characteristics, water reducer hydrophobic group directed adsorption on the surface of cement particles, hydrophilic group pointing to the aqueous solution and the formation of adsorption film. Concrete mixing, due to the high-efficient water reducer, directional adsorption makes cement particle surface gay charge, the same, cement particles dispersed to each other, and condensation of flocculant of concrete structure collapse, water was released, supplement the moisture needed for the cement mixing, effectively increase the activity of the concrete mixture, to reduce the effect of the water. At the same time, the surface of cement particles due to efficient water reducer formed by the adsorption film between cement particles and particles contact more mellow, increasing the workability of concrete; The adsorption film also increases the surface area of cement particles and promotes hydration, which is conducive to improving the strength of concrete.

At present, international supply chains were shocked, and logistics and transportation efficiency decreases. Geopolitical conflicts further aggravate uncertainties about the European and American economic recovery and the global commodity supply. For this reason, I assume the price of the concrete water reducer would not decrease significantly in the short term.
