Concrete Admixtures - Set Retardant
Time: 02:27
Using a concrete admixture to delay the setting of the concrete gives the concrete finisher longer to apply the proper finish. Learn more about this concrete set retardant and see how it is used on a slab that will be textured.

Pouring fresh concrete is a time-sensitive project and unexpected delays can cause major problems. With the use of admixtures, you can have more control over your concrete. Admixtures can restore loads of concrete that might need to be rejected due to delays or other complications. They can improve the performance of problem concrete by modifying its characteristics and enhancing workability.

Admixtures are additions to a concrete mix that can help control the set time and other aspects of fresh concrete. Common admixtures include accelerating admixtures, retarding admixtures, fly ash, air entraining admixtures, and water-reducing admixtures.
