Concrete operations continue even during the cold weather season. Concrete strength and durability can be affected if the concrete freezes before reaching a minimum compressive strength. Sometimes the demands of our industry ask us to do the seemingly impossible. ‘Freeze-resistant concrete’, to many, may fall in to that impossible category. In reality, ‘freeze-resistant concrete’ is possible, and can be affordable, under the right circumstances. The proper ‘freeze-resistant’ mix design, along with many successful projects, will be discussed.
