Road reconstruction projects always seem to take a long amount of time and the concrete takes forever to set. The best way to speed that process up is by using Great Lakes Chloride’s own Indiana Concrete Accelerator. This concrete accelerator is great to use in the colder months when the Indiana weather reaches below-freezing temperatures most days and potholes need to be refilled. If you are interested in speeding up your concrete set time, contact Great Lakes Chloride to get started today! Winter is just around the corner and you want to be prepared.
There are a great deal of reasons why you should use an Indiana Concrete Accelerator during your road paving or reconstruction. The first one is that it reduces concrete setting time by about one or two hours. By reducing the setting time, construction workers aren’t put in danger as long as other jobs, and because it speeds up the job process, that means money is saved on hiring workers and those workers can get a new job faster. Delays can occur without using a concrete accelerator costing extra money and slowing down worker efficiency. Overall, everyone wins when an accelerator is involved in concrete projects.
Concrete accelerators are also a reliable substance used for all projects. For the past 50 years, construction companies have been using concrete accelerators for their projects and have shown that their set times are reduced by 65%, depending on the weather conditions. Studies have shown that job sites that use a 2% admixture of calcium chloride at 50 degrees Fahrenheit improve the setting times to those achieved at 70 degrees Fahrenheit without an admixture. This concrete accelerator is the most effective when outdoor temperatures are in the 30 to 50 degrees Fahrenheit range.
If you want to speed up your project’s progress, use Great Lakes Chloride to get the best results for setting your concrete!
Consider when and where your project is taking place. At any point, if the temperature is under 70 degrees Fahrenheit, the set time for your concrete will drastically increase. If you plan on doing a project involving concrete in cooler weather, use a concrete accelerator.
Choose Your Admixture
When you choose the right admixture and use it correctly, you get enormous benefits for your project.
Using Calcium Chloride
Calcium chloride can reduce bleeding and improve workability when it comes to concrete. Though bleeding isn’t always bad, it can cause issues when your concrete is setting if it bleeds too slowly or too fast. Calcium chloride helps you to develop better-quality concrete at a faster rate.
Gain Profit and Increase Performance
By using an Indiana Concrete Accelerator for your concrete projects, you are reducing the cost of labor and materials, improving concrete performance, and increasing profits.
When you use concrete accelerants on the job site, it can provide you with a lot of benefits that will overall outweigh the costs. The sooner a job is completed the sooner workers can move to the next job site and you have a better product that won’t require repairs in the near future.

How You Can Accelerate?
You don’t have to wait for summer to get started on your projects! Using Great Lakes Chloride’s concrete accelerator can help speed up your setting time during the harsh colder months of the year!
A 2% admixture of calcium chloride at 50 degrees Farhenheit will improve setting times to those attainable at 70 degrees Farhenheit without calcium chloride. The effect is most significant in the 30-50 degrees Farenheit range.
Concrete set times are reduced by 65% when calcium chloride is used in concrete projects. Keep in mind that calcium chloride admixture percentages vary depending on the temperature outside.
