Set Time Retarding and Hydration Control Admixtures

Increase Concrete Setting Time

Producing uniform and predictable quality concrete is important for meeting requirements for  placing and finishing concrete, especially in high performance concrete. BASF Set Retarding and Hydration Control Admixtures can help facilitate retarding of set characteristics in concrete, and stabilization of long hauls and returned concrete, offering:  

  • Flexibility in placing and finishing, especially for long hauls of concrete

  • Reduction of waste associated with concrete washwater and returned concrete 

  • Moderate to extended concrete set retardation
