As the hot temperatures associated with the summer months approach, Euclid Chemical suggests following the practices outlined in ACI 305.1-14. Euclid Chemical can help protect concrete during hot weather conditions through the use of set-retarding admixtures, fibers, hydration stabilizers, evaporation retarders, and curing compounds. Here are a number of solutions we provide:
- Eucon Series set-retarding and hydration stabilizing admixtures to lower water demand, extend working time, and maintain strength. For more information, see our Set Retarding Technical Bulletin
- PSI Fiberstrand and TUF-STRAND fibers to minimize cracking and reduce crack widths.
- Eucobar evaporation retarder to maintain moisture during placement.
- Kurez DR VOX (curing compound) and Diamond Clear VOX (curing & sealing) are membrane forming curing options to protect concrete from moisture loss. Kurez VOX White-Pigmented is a curing compound that also reflects sunlight to help keep concrete cool.
