Accelerators allow for greater strength development in the early stages of setting. These admixtures also reduce the time that is typically required for curing and protection, meaning the project will be finished much sooner.
Retarders are used to slow the setting of the concrete application. This admixture also counteracts the accelerating effect that hot weather can have on concrete that is still in the process of setting. Overall, retarders help keep concrete workable as it is being poured.
This admixture reduces the amount of required water in any given concrete mixture. Concrete that utilizes water reducers needs far less water in order to reach an appropriate slump, as well as offer more stability in the long run.
The use of fibres in concrete mixtures will work to prevent cracks and other structural issues. Steel, glass, synthetic, and natural fibres are all options that can be mixed with concrete for added strength.
Adding air to concrete mixtures will ultimately provide greater durability once the application hardens, especially in colder climates where most concrete tends to freeze and thaw often.
