Fritz-Pak’s concrete delayed set admixture extends the setting time of one yard of concrete by up to one hour without impacting the integrity or durability of the finished product. Mini Delayed Set comes packaged in our signature, water-soluble bags for easy addition to the mix at the plant, on the road, or at the job site. It does not contain chlorides or corrosive materials, making it safe for your crew and your concrete mix.

When added to concrete wash water, Mini Delayed Set stabilizes the cement residue in the truck and keeps it from building up on the inside of the drum. It also allows the water to be reused for the next load of concrete – even if it sits in the truck overnight.

This product also offers a unique solution for concrete pumpers experiencing delays on the job site as a boom recirculation admixture. Check out the video below to learn more. Don’t forget to follow our social media channels for more information about how our products can improve your concrete.

Will Mini Delayed Set affect my color?
No, it will not affect color of gray concrete. If using white concrete, use Fritz-Pak Plaster Delay Set.
Can I re-dose this concrete delayed set admixture?
Yes. You can add more Mini Delayed Set if the initial concrete set has not started. You may re-dose up to three times.
What happens if I overdose the concrete?
Set time will be longer, but set will still occur.
Will it change the strength of my concrete?
Will it react with other admixtures?
No, Mini Delayed Set is compatible with most other admixtures.
Is it possible to mix for shorter times?
No. Mini Delayed Set needs to dissolve and be distributed evenly throughout the concrete. Short mixing times or mixing at slow speed may produce concrete with brown spots.
The concrete already has a retarder in it; will Mini Delayed Set still work?
Yes. Mini Delayed Set is compatible with other admixtures. See Product Bulletin #105 for details.
If the concrete has started to set, can I use Mini Delayed Set to stop and reverse the setting?
No. Mini Delayed Set is used to delay the initial set. If setting has already begun, Mini Delayed Set will not work.
How do I know when setting has begun?
If you notice an increase in concrete temperature or a reduction in slump, concrete has started to set and Mini Delayed Set may not be able to stop the setting process.
What is the difference between Mini and Standard Delayed Set?
The chemical used is exactly the same. The only difference is the size of the bag. Mini Delayed Set is an 8 oz. (½ lb.) bag, while Standard Delayed Set is a 2 lb. bag.
