Mini Delayed Set FAQ

Category: Set Retarders

Q. Will Mini Delayed Set affect my color?

A. No, it will not affect color of gray concrete. If using white concrete, use Fritz-Pak Plaster Delay Set.

Q. Can I re-dose?

A. Yes. You can add more Mini Delayed Set if the initial concrete set has not started. You may re-dose up to three times.

Q. What happens if I overdose the concrete?

A. Set time will be longer, but set will still occur.

Q. Will it change the strength of my concrete?

A. No.

Q. Will it react with other admixtures?

A. No, Mini Delayed Set is compatible with most other admixtures.

Q. Is it possible to mix for shorter times?

A. No. Mini Delayed Set needs to dissolve and be distributed evenly throughout the concrete. Short mixing times or mixing at slow speed may produce concrete with brown spots.

Q. The concrete already has a retarder in it; will Mini Delayed Set still work?

A. Yes. Mini Delayed Set is compatible with other admixtures. See Product Bulletin #105 for details.

Q. If the concrete has started to set, can I use Mini Delayed Set to stop and reverse the setting?

A. No. Mini Delayed Set is used to delay the initial set. If setting has already begun, Mini Delayed Set will not work.

Q. How do I know when setting has begun?

A. If you notice an increase in concrete temperature or a reduction in slump, concrete has started to set and Mini Delayed Set may not be able to stop the setting process.

Q. What is the difference between Mini and Standard Delayed Set?

A. The chemical used is exactly the same. The only difference is the size of the bag. Mini Delayed Set is an 8 oz (½ lb) bag, while Standard Delayed Set is a 2 lb. bag.
