Why Cold Weather and Concrete DON’T mix…
Mixing cold weather with your concrete project can create many issues that could become costly and deteriorate the strength of the concrete. Exposing concrete to low temperatures with the lack of PB Materials’ cold weather additives could prolong the time required to reach the initial set time, making you pull out your wallet and pay your crew more than is needed. Curing is an essential step in producing durability and quality concrete.
Concrete that freezes before it has cured properly can result in a 50% reduction of its ultimate strength, causing a total project re-do, and…pulling your wallet out again.
- Cold weather is a factor—when concrete reaches 50℉ it begins to set more slowly and can cost you both time and money.
- Anything below 40℉ will affect the hydration reaction, causing your concrete to become porous and weak.
- Once your concrete reaches 500 psi it has achieved enough pressure and there’s no longer enough water in the pores to freeze up and damage the concrete.
PB Materials’ Cold Weather Products reduces concrete setting time, ensuring it quickly reaches the proper compressive strength needed, even in cold weather—making your project a solid success!
