Be prepared, 9 things to consider before pouring concrete

Note: We've started pouring concrete floors on styrofoam with the temps at 15 degrees at 7am and a high temp of 28 at noon and the concrete set-up just fine. The concrete temp. was 70 degrees when it showed up on-site, we used a 4000 psi mix and added calcium chloride (an accelerator) to the mixer truck when it was mixing the concrete. 5.

Winterizing Ready Mix, Central Mix and Paving Concrete

Winterizing a concrete plant is not a particularly difficult process, but failure to properly winterize your concrete plant can prove to be a very costly mistake. Not all ready mix concrete plant operators actually close for the winter, but even those who choose to stay open need to be mindful the extreme conditions of winter can have on their

COLD WEATHER CONCRETE GUIDE FOR STRUCTURAL …

Jan 23, 2015 · What helps concrete set in winter is water, which causes heat of hydration that prohibits freezing. As the temperatures outside fall, Consolidated Concrete heats up the water used in the concrete mix mimicking the process in summer. The concrete doesn't know how cold it is outside. Accelerators can also be used to help it set.

Concrete: Summer vs. Winter Mixtures - Fine Homebuilding

Mar 11, 2010 · Concrete needs water to cure properly, and the slower it cures, the better. But on hot summer days, the water in the mix begins evaporating as soon as it comes off the truck, causing concrete to dry too quickly. Admixtures such as water reducers or superplasticizers can be added to help retard the cure and reduce water demand, and both types

A Wintry Mix: How to Ensure Good Concrete in Cold Weather

There are two main problems with pouring concrete in cold winter weather: Concrete can freeze before it gains strength which breaks up the matrix. Concrete sets more slowly when it is cold—very slow below 50°F; below 40°F the hydration reaction basically stops and the concrete doesn't gain strength. But these are concrete temperatures not air temperatures.

Cold Weather Concrete Reminders

OF THE TEMPERATURE FALLING BELOW 5°C WITHIN 24H OF PLACING, CONCRETE MUST BE MAINTAINED AT 10°C FOR A MINIMUM OF 7 DAYS. 4. Avoid late season concrete placement where concrete can experience freezing conditions and /or exposure to de-icing salts before the concrete has reached 32MPa, and/or the slab has had at least 30 days of air drying.

How do weather conditions affect pouring a concrete

One of the key metrics for a concrete mix is the free water to cement ratio. If the water content is too low, you struggle to get it to compact properly, resulting in air voids, and weak concrete. If the water content is too high, the water can leave pores in the concrete, which also reduces the strength of the concrete.
