  • Only converted strength must be utilized
    for design purpose


AS LOW AS -10°C:

To prevent the concrete from freezing before the initial set occurs:

  • Use warm or hot water
  • Protect aggregates from cold
  • After casting, protect concrete from freezing for 4 to 5 hours with insulating blanket or other appropriate means...
