slump, evaporation and concrete workability research

Concrete workability, evaporation rate, and hot weather concreting

Hot weather concreting isn't for the faint of heart. We'd hazard a hypothesis that profanity on project sites goes up proportionally with ambient temperature. In short: hot weather concrete is difficult. A simple-sounding yet familiar problem, but one with a complicated explanation. Stubborn hot weather concrete causes challenges for a variety of interconnected reasons.

Improve Workability

Prevent slump loss and maintain workability, even in hot weather concreting operations. By lowering the concrete mixture's temperature, crews face less hassle with finishing and placing concrete.
