Yesterday, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, arrived in Taiwan, becoming the highest-ranking US official to visit Taiwan in 25 years.
The move was interpreted as a direct threat by China, which claims the island is part of its territory, and Beijing has repeatedly warned the US that its military will not "sit idly by" and "will take strong countermeasures".
As the international community waits to see how China will react, chipmakers in the business community are already feeling the pain of the brewing conflict between the US and China over Taiwan.
Semiconductor stocks tumbled on Tuesday in anticipation of Pelosi's visit to Taiwan.
Shares in TSMC, the world's largest and most valuable semiconductor maker, worth $440 billion, fell 2.4 per cent on Tuesday. Its Taiwanese counterparts United Microelectronics and MediaTek fell 3% and 1.6% respectively. Meanwhile, shares of the US chipmaker Intel fell 1.5 per cent on the same day.
As Ms Pelosi prepares to meet Taiwan's president, Tsai Ing-wen, on Wednesday, technology investors are keeping a close eye on her actions-and any signs of retaliation from China. In the event of a dispute between China and the US, chipmakers, especially in Taiwan, are likely to be collateral damage.
Because of the turbulent international situation, the supply and prices of many international bulk pce powder are still very uncertain.
Effect of water consumption on properties of polycarboxylate concrete mixture
The influence of water consumption is very obvious. In the actual application of concrete engineering, sometimes if the water consumption is increased by more 1~3kg/m3, the concrete will appear serious bleeding phenomenon, which will cause defects such as hemp surface, sand and holes on its surface, and the uniformity of concrete pouring and construction quality cannot be guaranteed, so the strength and durability of concrete structure will be reduced.
Polycarboxylate concrete is prone to delamination and segregation.
In most cases, when polycarboxylate superplasticizer is added to concrete, the viscosity of paste will be greatly reduced. At the same time, even if the amount and water consumption of polycarboxylate superplasticizer are the best, and the phenomenon of bleeding will not occur, the phenomenon of stratification and segregation is easy to occur in concrete, which is mainly manifested in that the coarse aggregate will be separated from mortar and paste, and a large number of them will sink. This kind of concrete mixture does not have any vibration in concrete pouring, and the phenomenon of delamination and segregation is also very obvious.
Naphthalene series, aliphatic series, lignin sulfonates, aminosulfonates and other traditional superplasticizers can be mixed in any proportion, so as to meet the preparation requirements of various concretes. these traditional superplasticizers can not only be well miscible in water, but also achieve excellent superposition effect when mixed. Polycarboxylate superplasticizer has great limitations, it can only be used in combination with traditional superplasticizer lignosulfonate, and its compatibility with other traditional superplasticizers is poor. If combined with other types of traditional superplasticizer, it is not only difficult to achieve the superposition effect, but also makes the fluidity of concrete very poor, the water consumption increases greatly, the loss of slump is serious, and the concrete is dry and difficult to unload. the strength and durability of concrete will be seriously affected.

The agreement reached by EU member states last month to reduce natural gas consumption officially came into effect on the 9th. According to the EU, the move is intended to prepare for possible disruptions in Russian gas supplies.
Under the agreement reached on July 26, EU member states agreed to reduce natural gas demand by 15 per cent from the average consumption over the past five years between August 1, 2022 and March 31, 2023, in accordance with their chosen measures.
Data from the European Commission show that to achieve the above goals, EU member states need to save a total of 45 billion cubic meters of natural gas, while Germany, a "big gas user", should save about 10 billion cubic meters.
If member states do not save enough natural gas and there is a shortage of gas supply, the EU will take compulsory measures to reduce natural gas demand. According to the German news agency, the threshold for the EU to launch the coercive measure is high, requiring at least 15 of the 27 member states to agree and representing at least 65% of the EU population.
The European Commission will review the agreement before May 2023 in the light of the overall situation of natural gas supplies in the EU to consider whether the agreement should be extended.
