Our Concrete

 

Retarders

Hogg Ready Mix adds this material to concrete to decreases the hydration rate of cement, thereby increasing the setting time and decreasing the strengthening rate during the early age.

Available in different setting rates including;

  • Type R - 2hr
  • Type Rx - 6hr

 

Key benefits include;

  • Increased workability & finish-ability as it can extend set-time and placement time giving you more time to place and finish in hot weather.
  • Durability and permeability drastically reduced as slump retention achieved will not require onsite water addition.
  • Increases overall product performance and increases compressive strengths at all ages.
  • Reduces water demand 4-8% depending on dosage.
