Polarcon™: The Winter Concrete Solution
A unique proprietary blend available at four performance levels, Mayco Mix's Polarcon™ provides
Polarcon enhances rapid setting in
the coldest weather conditions and reduces building times
In addition to delivering fast, reliable setting even in sub–zero
- Reduces labour costs
- Decreases tenting and heating costs
- Provides high early strength gain
- Enables early form removal
Platinum, PolarconGold, Polarcon Silver, and Polarcon Bronze are each
designed specifically for colder climates to save time and money.
proportions and accelerating materials vary with the level of
acceleration desired and the ambient temperature in which you will be
Below 5°C, or when there is a probability of the temperature
falling below 5°C within 24 hours of concrete pouring, special setting
measures must be taken.
During freezing weather, water curing should be
terminated 12 hours before the end of the protection period.
SET TIME vs. TEMPERATURE
The graph below is actual Polarcon test data for 30 Mpa concrete,
comparing initial set time to ambient temperature.
Polarcon™ Gold reduces set
time by as much as 6 hours
Polarcon™ Silver reduces set time by as much as 4 hours
Polarcon™ Bronze reduces set time by as much as 2 hours
STRENGTH vs. SET TIME
The graph below demonstrates the relationship between concrete strength
and set time for a constant ambient temperature.
