Fritz-pak Corporation

Fritz-Pak always has something in their bag of tricks for each concrete application. I feel strongly that in this economy it is vital to get the word out to all parts of the concrete industry that Fritz-Pak products save loads.

Cold Weather Concreting


Winter isn't over yet, but you can start concreting now with Fritz-Pak NCA and Supercizer 1.

Supercizer 1 is a cost-effective high-range water reducer for the concrete specialist who is looking to save money and labor costs. Supercizer 1 yields up to 20% water reduction or 6" slump increase. It affords job site slump control without the addition of water. It results in higher early and ultimate strengths and improves concrete workability while maintaining the water-cement ratio.

Supercizer 1 has been successfully used in many cold weather concrete applications. In winter you want to reduce use of anything that freezes, like water. In precast applications at 15 degrees ambient temperature, mix designs with NCA and Supercizer 1 made it possible to pour, strip the forms next morning and find no frost marks. This method yielded 7 day strengths of 3000 PSI.

With Fritz-Pak's Non-Chloride Accelerator, you can accelerate the set time of your concrete even in very cold weather. You can strip forms faster, finish quicker, and reduce labor costs by not having to wait around for the concrete to set up. Unlike other set accelerators, using our products will not affect concrete color. Our NCA is also not corrosive to metal, an important feature for structural concrete. Our product is predictable and reliable in its performance every single time.
