ACCEL-Mix™ Concrete

FOR SUCCESSFUL COLD-WEATHER CONCRETING AND SAVING TIME ON THE CONSTRUCTION SITE

THE ACCEL-MIX™ CONCRETE SOLUTION: A SOLUTION DEVELOPED BY BÉTON PROVINCIAL

We’ve designed specialty products, such as ACCEL-Mix™ Concrete, to better address cold-weather concreting challenges. L’ACCEL-Mix™ Concrete has a faster setting time and increases the concrete’s early strength. It also reduces the amount of water required. This ensures that the work’s quality and execution time are not compromised.

Since concrete’s water content varies between 15% and 18%, cold concrete is vulnerable to freezing. Our climate’s low temperatures have a direct impact on the concrete’s performance. Cold weather considerably increases the setting time and causes water to rise to the surface of freshly poured concrete. In the winter, it is important for concrete to develop enough maturity to withstand the cold and maintain its integrity and strength.
