When calling in with your order you can ask for a product called retarder, this product slows down the set time of the concrete. You can request anywhere from a quarter dose to a full dose in. If you are unsure how much you need you can ask dispatch!
How can I speed up the set time of my Concrete?
ANSWER:There are two options; DowFlake Calcium and Non Chloride. DowFlake Calcium is a product our drivers carry on their truck. You can put 1-2% in your concrete. Our drivers carry a chart that shows how many bags per mix you would need to reach 1% or 2%. Non Chloride is a product put in your concrete through the batch plant. This product is more effective as it has more time to mix in thoroughly into the concrete. You can ask Dispatch if you are unsure of the amount that you need. You can put anywhere from .5%-6% of this product into your concrete.
