Ready Mix Concrete

Our convenient options in both liquid and dry calcium chloride have been a mainstay in Ready Mix operations for decades. 
    • Calcium chloride is the most effective concrete accelerator.
    • Reduce set time by two thirds.
    • Improves workability, less water required. 
    • Improves strength of air entrained concrete. 
    • Reduces bleeding. 
    • We produce better quality concrete faster.
    Refer to the next page for guidelines on the use of calcium chloride in Portland cement concrete. For more information, visit our web site at
