Are you looking for a high-quality admixture that will help you beat the elements during your concrete curbing job? Fritz-Pak offers a variety of solutions to combat many of the problems presented by pouring concrete outdoors. Whether you’re working in a hot climate or need to prepare the concrete to withstand harsh winters, our products are designed to provide you with the right amount of flow or slump and can ensure your concrete is ready to withstand any weather pattern.

Control the Slump

One of the most important aspects of concrete curbing is slump. Too much slump and the concrete won’t hold its shape. Too little slump and the concrete won’t cure correctly. So how do you control the slump of your mix? By using Fritz-Pak Super Slump Buster. This amazing admixture decreases slump without affecting the water to cement ratio, creating a strong, cohesive mix that will produce a clean-finished curb. Super Slump Buster is certified not to harm your concrete.

Control the Air Content

Mother-Nature can be unkind to concrete, especially in colder climates. If your concrete curb is going to experience multiple freeze/thaw cycles throughout the winter, you need to make sure the mix has enough entrained air. The best products to increase entrained air are Fritz-Pak Air Plus and Super Air Plus. These admixtures foam the mix, creating microscopic air bubbles within the concrete. These bubbles allow water to expand within the concrete as it freezes, preventing cracks and increasing the durability of the concrete. Both Air Plus and Super Air plus have been certified to meet ASTM C 260.

Control the Finish

Hot weather creates lots of challenges for finishing concrete, particularly during the early curing process. If the concrete dries too fast, it causes cracks and crusting, creating an unpleasant aesthetic. You can decrease the risk of crusting and improve the finish of your concrete curb with Fritz-Pak Control Finish. It delays the setting time of the surface preventing hot, dry winds from damaging the concrete as it sets up. It also provides you with a softer surface in which to apply decorative patterns or improve the contour of the curb. Like all other Fritz-Pak products, Control Finish will not harm your concrete.

When you’re working with a concrete outside and are worried about the elements, Fritz-Pak has the products you need to combat any problem that comes your way.
