Speedy Set Time

27 Velocrete 400

The mix suits lightweight architectural concrete and slabs, veneer stone, and manufactured products, including landscaping elements.

Lightweight concrete additive developer Syntheon Inc., Pittsburgh, has formulated a dry mix for 30-minute set time and high early strength development characteristics affording form removal at 90 minutes. Announced at World of Concrete 2016, Velocrete sheds weight from architectural projects and is available in a variety of lightweight densities: 150, 120, 110, 100, 90, and 50 pcf. The material can be specially formulated for custom jobs at a two-pallet minimum order.

“Velocrete fills a void in our industry,” says Syntheon Director of Business Development Kevin Foody. “For our customers, it is the best of both worlds—speed and light weight—all with the option to customize the mix to meet their specific needs. There is no other product on the market like this, and we look forward to introducing it to our customers.”
