Read about our technology, products, and our comprehensive approach to temperature control for concrete.
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.Read more about these research insights.
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.Read this technical summary for an overview of benefits.
A third-party Streamlined Comparative Life Cycle Assesment compared liquid nitrogen cooling with ice cooling; the results showed significant reduction in carbon emissions, harmful particulate matter, and energy consumption.Read more about how automation reduces carbon emissions.
NITROcrete™ helps control evaporation rate, reducing shrinkage cracking. By controlling temperature, year-round problems with plastic shrinkage are mitigated when...Read more about how concrete cooling prevents shrinkage cracking.
Lower temperatures yield more ideal hydration for stronger concrete, among other benefits.Read more about the relationship between LN cooling and hydration rate.
