The air content in freshly batched concrete changes rapidly, especially during transport during hot weather. What this means for you as a ready-mixed driver is that the load you’re hauling is likely to not have the right air content when you arrive at the job. That is when having an air-entraining agent, such as Fritz-Pak’s Super Air Plus, can save you a lot of time and money.

Benefits of an Air-Entraining Agent

Fritz-Pak’s Super Air Plus increases the air content of fresh concrete by up to 2%. So you can be sure you have the right air content even in extreme temperatures. This powerful admixture comes packaged in a water-soluble bag that is easily added to the truck. Once in the concrete, the air-entraining agent will activate within five to 10 minutes. Super Air Plus contains the same chemical as Air Plus, just with double the concentration. It is ASTM certified and approved by the Department of Transportation in states across the country.

Why Use an Air-Entraining Agent?

Using an air-entraining agent in your mix improves the durability of the concrete while increasing its workability. Our Super Air Plus does not change the water-cement ratio of the mix and will not impact the overall strength of the concrete. Air-entraining admixtures are the ideal product to use for concrete being placed in colder climates, as the additional air pockets help protect the concrete from freeze-thaw damage.

What does increased air content do to concrete?
It increases its durability by making it more resistant to damage from freezing.
Will it change the set time?
No, it will not speed or slow the set.
Will these products affect the strength of my concrete?
They will not significantly change strength, and they will increase durability.
What is the difference between Super Air Plus and Air Plus?
Super Air Plus has twice the concentration of the active ingredient of Air Plus.
Which product should I use, Air Plus or Super Air Plus?
Air Plus should be used by concrete producers who have very consistent quality in their supply of raw materials, thus only needing small corrections of air. Concrete producers that have variation in their quality of raw materials normally experience wider fluctuations in air content and should consider using Super Air Plus.
What is the raw material used in the production or Super Air Plus?
Vinsol Resin, a natural air entrainer.
Are these products compatible with synthetic air entrainers?
Yes. Additionally the spacing and size of air bubbles is improved when natural air entrainers are used to correct synthetic air entrainers.
Can they be used in dry-blended materials like mortars and stuccos?
Yes. See the recommended dosage rate chart.
Are Super Air Plus and Air Plus effective in concrete with fly ash containing high levels of organic compounds (i.e. high LOI)?
Yes. Natural air entrainers are more effective than synthetic air entrainers.
Can I add Super Air Plus or Air Plus to water to make a liquid admixture?
No. Some of the components will only dissolve under special conditions of temperature and pH.
How long have the products been in the market?
Since 1992.
