Best Practices for Cold Weather Concreting
The American Concrete Institute defines cold weather concreting as, “When the air temperature has fallen to or is expected to fall below 40° F (4.4° C) during the protection period. The protection period is defined as the time required to prevent concrete from being affected by exposure to cold weather.”
Without proper consideration, cold weather can be detrimental to concrete performance. However, recognizing these environmental factors and planning accordingly will help you reduce risks.
In this short 30-minute webinar, 40-year veteran of concrete quality control Jack Holley will pull from his unique experience in various climates and take us through the importance of minimizing the negative effects that cold weather can have on concrete performance.
During this webinar you will learn how to:
- Define cold weather concreting;
- Identify problems faced during concrete production and transportation;
- Avoid potential issues your customers could face during placement and curing;
- Identify preventive measures to minimize the effects of cold weather.
