Concrete starts its hydration reaction from the time the dry cement has initial contact with the batch water. Extended haul times, excess drum revolutions, temperature and time delays can cause concrete to perform substandard to its intended application. HydraStop P can be used to offset these adverse factors and produce acceptable concrete in these conditions. HydraStop P is especially helpful in the summer months when hydration is accelerated due to higher ambient and mix temperatures.
Riteks HydraStop™ is a hydration stabilizer which helps maintain slump and proper set times of freshly produced concrete over extended haul times and increased ambient temperatures. Hydra-Stop is used to offset issues caused by extended haul times, excess drum revolutions or the effects of temperature and time. HydraStop is especially helpful in the summer months when hydration is accelerated due to higher ambient and mix temperatures. HydraStop aids in controlling concrete temperature when a maximum mix temperature is specified. Concrete performance properties are maintained while exceeding the requirements of ASTM, AASHTO and CRD specifications.
