Liquidow and Concrete Accelerator
Liquidow Reduces Setting Time
LIQUIDOW™ is able to reduce cement setting time mainly because it has a faster rate of hydration. For instance, adding 2% calcium chloride can reduce setting time by as much as two-thirds. In fact, concrete with a 2% addition of LIQUIDOW™ placed at 50ºF has a faster setting time than plain concrete at 70ºF. Furthermore, while the setting time for some products may be influenced by the type of cement involved, LIQUIDOW™ calcium chloride will decrease the time needed for the cement to set regardless of the cement involved.
