Strength-increasing effects of achloride-free accelerating admixture are investigated on various portland cement pastes, mortars and concretes with or without other admixtures. Although the test results are preliminary in nature, the available experimental evidence shows that this chloride-free accelerator increases significantly the strengths of a wide variety of cementitious compositions including portland cement, epoxy, pozzolans and combinations of these.
