Accelerating Admixtures
Accelerating Admixtures are formulated to accelerate time of setting and increase early concrete strengths. The benefits are reduced labor costs due to earlier finishing of slabs, reduced protection time in cold weather, and earlier stripping and reuse of forms.

Retarders
Retarders are used for making more uniform and predictable high-performance concrete while retarding its setting time to facilitate placing and finishing operations in high temperatures. The benefits are flexibility in the scheduling of placing and finishing operations, minimizes premature hardening during delays between mixing and placing, and lowers rate of temperature rise in mass concrete thereby reducing thermal cracking.

Color
Coloring agents are a simple and inexpensive way to add a touch of design to your project. Color can be added to any mix, and can also be textured or stamped to create different effects and finishes. Color concrete is not a surface treatment but is added to the mix to achieve a uniform color throughout the concrete.

Water-Reducing Admixtures
Concrete containing a water-reducing admixture requires less water demand to reach required slumps than untreated concrete. The benefits are excellent workability of plastic concrete, reduced water content for a given level of workability, provides up to 15% water reduction, enhanced strength and durability, reduces effort required to finish, and lowers in-place cost.

Fly Ash
A byproduct of burning coal, fly ash can replace part of the cement in a concrete mixture. It increases concrete strength, pumpability, durability, and workability.
