Sodium Humate

Sodium humate is the salt of humic acids, derived from natural oxidized lignite through extraction

Sodium humate has a wide use in industry. This product can be applied in a great number of fields such as the removal of toxic metals from wastewater or as mud adjuster in oil drilling. Other application fields include construction industry, paper industry, removal of toxics in contaminated soils, paints and industrial coatings, printing inks, foundry sand additives, rubber compounding and processing, absorbents/selective extractants, asphalt and bitumen compounding, grease and lubricants, roofing compounds, under-coatings and soundproofing, cement/concrete and emulsions.

Sodium Humate  

can be used as liquefier in concrete. It not only reduces the consumption of concrete, but also improves its physico-mechanical properties. It also has a potential as a special density control additive (light weight) in cement or concrete. Due to its hydrophobic property, using Sodium Humate results in very little water uptake. This leads to either, a reduced use and an improved workability of the cement, or to an increase in its stability while the amount of cement used remains the same.

Sodium Humate helps to diminish the surface tension of water, resulting in an improved utilization of solid particles in concrete. It leads to a complete fine separation (dispersion) of the cement, whereby the friction between solid particles is reduced, resulting in a better versatility and workability of concrete.

Even though Sodium Humate is non-reactive with cement, some testing should be done prior to application.
