Brazil, the world's largest coffee bean producer, recently announced that it is facing the worst drought in 91 years, affecting local hydropower generation and agricultural production, causing the prices of related crops to soar, and coffee bean futures soaring to a nearly four-and-a-half-year high. News of the drought in Brazil quickly pushed up coffee futures. Prices of Arabica beans, favored by boutique cafes and premium brands, continued to rise, hitting their highest level in nearly seven years. Brazil is the world's largest coffee producer and its coffee production is critical to global supply. Analysts expect Brazil’s next year’s coffee bean harvest to fall by 5% to 10%, or even more, over the next two years, and the price increase brought about by the cut is a foregone conclusion.
Like coffee beans, the price of polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer keeps going up.
In recent years, polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer has been widely used in many construction fields. Modern concrete has high requirements for additional functional additives, so polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent in the concrete system, it should consider the following key technologies.
The compatibility technology of polycarboxylic acid series. Because of the special structure of polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer, it can not be stored and used with other superplasticizers, especially naphthalene superplasticizer. Need and different type of water reducing agent for alternate use, must be the relevant container for serious cleaning cleaning, prevent cross pollution to affect the quality of concrete. The adsorption performance of water reducing agent is not the same because of different types of cement, because the polycarboxylic acid water reducing agent is relatively narrow in the compatible range of cement, the incompatible situation is inevitable, so it is necessary to increase its dosage or use different types of cement to effectively solve this problem.
⑵ retarding technology of polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent. In the construction process, due to the short retarding time, the use of retarding agent can effectively prolong the plasticity of concrete. However, the incompatibility of the two should also be considered to avoid the reduction of concrete performance.
⑶ Gas control. Polycarboxylic acid water reducing agent entrainment effect is very good, can be used together with defoaming agent, entrainment agent. The gas content of concrete can be controlled and its workability and durability can be improved by removing the concrete and then introducing it.
(4) Control of mud content in sand and stone. The application effect of polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer is also affected by the mud content of sand and stone. If the mud content in the sand exceeds 2%, the structures between the clay layers will therefore absorb large amounts of water reducing agent molecules, reducing the flow performance of the concrete. If the mud content is relatively large in the construction process, the anti-clay polycarboxylic acid water-reducing agent should be considered.

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected economies and chemical companies in many countries around the world. Measures such as extending holidays and resuming work were taken to control the development of the epidemic, and the normal operation of some chemical enterprises was also affected to some extent.
We provides high quality polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer with reasonable price. “In order to feedback to old customers, the company is still in full operations to provide polycarboxylic acid superplasticizer with competitive price.” said Olina, the sales manager.
Chemical production is highly dependent on transportation, and the epidemic affects the circulation of people and materials first. Predictably, none of this is rosy. In densely populated areas with large mobility, the situation of epidemic prevention and control becomes more severe in the later stage.
