In the present study, compatibility assessment of commercially available cements (OPC and PPC) and SNF & PCE based super plasticizers are made by evaluating the workabilities, setting times and compressive strengths of M40 grade concrete mixes made with two different brands of cement and with two different chemical admixtures. The dosage of SNF and PCE based chemical admixtures to be used in M40 grade concrete is determined using marsh cone test. It was found that M40 concrete made with SNF based superplasticizer has achieved desired compressive strength than the concrete made with PCE based superplasticizer. This shows that SNF based superplasticizer is more compatible for M40 grade concrete than PCE based superplasticizer. So it is suggested that for the development of PPC based M40 grade concrete SNF superplasticizers can be used.
