Packaged Concrete Admixtures to Control the Set Time
Slow concrete mixes are common bagged mixes customers want, especially during the hot summer months. The easiest way to create these types of bagged mixes is to add a powdered delay set admixture. Fortunately, Fritz-Pak’s Standard Delay Set or Mini Delay Set can both be used to create “slowcrete” mixes. If you need to create a “fastcrete” mix, you will want to use our Non-Chloride Accelerator. This concrete accelerator speeds up the set time for those cold weather mixes without corrosive chemicals. Neither our delay set nor accelerating packaged concrete admixtures will harm the mix or require any special handling precautions.
