Concrete Setting Accelerator

Our concrete setting accelerator NitCal has many benefits in a range of concrete pouring situations. You can use Yara’s concrete setting accelerator without any risk to the quality of your concrete.

  • It allows cold weather concreting, even in very severe weather. No need to stop activity at your construction site even if the winter is unusually cold.
  • It neutralizes the slowdown of setting due to use of plasticizers.
  • It optimizes your consumption of water and cement, when used in conjunction with a superplasticizer. NitCal utilizes hydration heat to prevent freezing, it does not shift the freezing point of water.

Extreme cold weather doesn’t stop construction!

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.
