NitCal consists of purified, specialty nitrate that Yara has specifically developed to bring you a whole range of additional benefits compared to other concrete accelerator admixtures.
NitCal allows construction to continue during cold temperatures. Used in conjunction with a plasticizer, it optimizes the use of water and cement, whilst accelerating setting time.
NitCal offsets the impact of low temperatures by accelerating the setting time. In ambient temperatures, below freezing point, you can use Yara’s concrete setting accelerator without reducing the quality of the concrete. NitCal utilizes hydration heat to prevent freezing, it does not shift the freezing point of water.
By using NitCal you achieve better timescales and therefore increase your effectiveness and your cut costs, bringing added value to your projects.
NitCal is safe to handle and cost efficient compared to alternative products. It is available in granules or liquid solutions. NitCal is not regulated by the International Maritime Dangerous Goods Code (IMDG) (re: Special Provision 208), making it easy to handle.
