During the hot summer months, it’s especially important to know how to correctly place concrete. Concrete in hot weather is subject to high loss of moisture by evaporation and rapid hardening, which can affect the placement operations and the cracking potential.
Air entrained concrete contains microscopic air bubbles that help alleviate internal pressure on the concrete by providing small pockets for water to expand into when exposed to freeze-thaw conditions. Without these pockets water has no place to escape, leading to cracks and/or scaling in concrete that greatly diminish the lifespan of a structure. Air is applied into a concrete mix via an air entraining admixture otherwise known as AEA. The amount of air in a mix can be adjusted to meet the specifications of the job at hand.
