False Set Concrete Admixtures
While there are many benefits to placing concrete with volumetric mixers, this type of application does create unique challenges. One of the most common problems faced by mobile mixer operators is false-setting concrete. False set is a loss of plasticity in the concrete within just a few minutes caused by a reaction between the gypsum in the cement and the water. False set concrete admixtures, like Water Conditioner, neutralize the gypsum in the cement. This prevents the plaster from forming and reduces the occurrence of false-setting concrete.
