Fritz-Pak Corporation was created in 1998 from the purchase of the admixture division at Fritz Industries. Based on more than 40 years of experience, we design our concrete admixtures to help concrete producers save money and improve the quality of their concrete. Our innovative products can reduce the cost of lost loads by solving common problems encountered on the job. Fritz-Pak high-performance powdered admixtures are packaged in a patented water-soluble bag, convenient for adding admixtures whenever and wherever you need them. We have a no-waste, environmentally friendly product with a recyclable outer bag and box. We also offer resources teaching construction crews better construction practices and how to properly apply our products. To learn more about our high-performance admixtures and when to use them, check out the products and applications pages.
Extensive research resulted in the development and patenting of the use of water-soluble Fritz-Pak bags for dispensing admixtures. The first materials packaged using this new method were Mini Delayed-Set and Standard Delayed-Set for controlling the set of concrete and overnight stabilization of wash water from ready-mix operations. After the successful introductions of these products, admixtures such as air entrainers, water reducers, and superplasticizers were added to the line. Further research led to the development and patenting of Slick-Pak and Slick-Pak II to be used as concrete pump primers and pumping aids. Slick-Pak has become a world standard for priming concrete pumps. Recent products include Counter-Flo, our award-winning countertop admixture, and Rescue-Pak, winner of the Most Innovative Product for 2003.
In designing our 31,000 square foot space, the carbon footprint has been reduced in a number of ways. It is tilt-up concrete construction with stained and polished concrete floors throughout the office space. The building’s spatial orientation takes advantage of prevailing wind flow to promote forced air natural heating and cooling in the warehouse. Natural light floods the space due to the generous use of windows and interior glass panels in the office, and skylights in the warehouse, lessening our electricity requirements. Temperature loss is reduced through the use of Low E glass. Motion-sensor lights throughout the building further reduce energy waste.
The outside was designed following xeriscape practices, which is landscaping using native and other low-water use plants. Periodic droughts must be expected in our region of North Texas, so we have planned to consume much less water than the typical commercial landscaping current in the area.
Fritz-Pak has long taken an eco-friendly stance. All Fritz-Pak admixtures are bio-degradable, and many have applications that help with environmental compliance issues. Our production process of blending and packaging powdered admixtures requires no discharges into the water system. All of our boxes are made with recycled cardboard and paper that comes from sustainable harvested forests.
