OptiFlo® retarders and hydration stabilizers have been carefully designed to provide uniform control of cement hydration, heat evolution, concrete plasticity and concrete set time. These unique products are a valuable tool to control both plastic and hardened concrete properties. Placing and finishing crews benefit from longer working times and better finishing characteristics of concrete. An additional benefit to lower hydration of concrete results in higher ultimate compressive strengths.
ProLong® L is a ready-to-use liquid solution manufactured to control the hydration process in Portland cement concretes and concrete wash water. This advanced hydration modifier coats the hydrating cement particles in the concrete and wash water, resulting in the delay of the hydration chemical reaction.
