Is it necessary to mix accelerator to RCC pavement?

Is it necessary to mix accelerator to RCC pavement?

(OP)
accelerator, to accelerate the curing process of the RCC.

RE: Is it necessary to mix accelerator to RCC pavement?

Depends on the curing conditions (temperature, humidity, etc) and how soon it needs to be open to traffic

RE: Is it necessary to mix accelerator to RCC pavement?

most engineers leave it up to the contractor as a means/methods item with the one exception of requiring that all accelerators be non-chloride.

RE: Is it necessary to mix accelerator to RCC pavement?

Avoid calcium chloride... do you really need to speed things up?
