The concrete and cement industries are under pressure to reduce their carbon footprint and create their products using more sustainable materials.  As part of those efforts, Fritz-Pak offers several green concrete admixtures.  Each product comes packaged in no-waste materials and is formulated to help make your concrete operations more sustainable.

Product Solutions

Reduce Rejected Loads with Green Concrete Admixtures

Every year around 5% of all concrete produced gets rejected because it does not meet specifications. These rejected loads result in unwanted concrete destined for disposal or crushing. All of which require additional energy, money, and time. Not to mention the fact that you will need to recreate the original mix. Fortunately, Fritz-Pak offers a line of high-performance green concrete admixtures to help solve problems and lower the risk of rejected loads. If you need to change the slump of your concrete, use Super Slump Buster or Supercizer PCE. Air Plus, Super Air Plus, and Air Minus can solve air entrainment issues.

Reduce Wash Water Disposal

Concrete wash water can have a devastating effect on the environment if it is not disposed of correctly. The EPA has developed a series of regulations surrounding the disposal of wash water, and violation of these regulations can result in significant fines and even a stop-work order. Fortunately, Fritz-Pak’s Mini-Delayed Set can act as a wash water stabilizer, allowing you to reuse all your wash water for the next load of concrete. Not only does this eliminate the risk of the wash water seeping into the environment, but it also reduces the amount of potable water needed to produce concrete. As a versatile product, Mini Delay Set is one of our most popular green concrete admixtures. Mini Delay Set also reduces wasted concrete when it is used to recirculate the boom in concrete pumping applications.

Reduce Water Usage with Superplasticizers

In addition to lowering your demand for washing and rinsing, Fritz-Pak’s line of superplasticizers can also help reduce the amount of potable water used to create concrete. Our Supercizer PCE can lower the water requirements for your concrete by up to 40%. All of our superplasticizers can help enhance the slump of your concrete without adding additional water. And you won’t need to worry about lowering the strength of your concrete. Like all our green concrete admixtures, our superplasticizers come packaged in our signature water-soluble bags.
