Workers report concrete cooling they could feel through their boots.

Sweltering summer heat in Atlanta, Georgia is not where you'd expect to hear teammates say “my boots are actually cool right now” while finishing concrete. Yet, finishers couldn't believe how easy NITROcrete™ was to work with, even with high ambient temperture and low water, high cement content mix design.

Project
  • 85° F / 29° C ambient temperature
  • 350+ cubic yard PT slab
  • High rise luxury residential condos in Atlanta, Georgia, Summer 2020
  • Customer: international ready mix producer
Challenge
  • High ambient temperature during midday pouring in late June
  • Project required a high cement, low water content mix
  • High rise in a densely populated urban area
  • Day began with snags with batching software requiring excellent customer support
NITROcrete™ Advantages

With NITROcrete™ removing the hassles of hot weather concrete, the finishers commented on the improved workability. In fact, the contractor told the ready mix company that they wanted NITROcrete™ on the loads moving forward. Initial snags with batching software at the plant were solved quickly with customer support that went above and beyond to ensure the project had reliable, cost-effective concrete cooling.

Advantages

  • Improved workability for hot weather concreting
  • Concrete cooling provided for low water content, high cement mix without affecting the mix design
