Accelerating and Water Reducing Admixture

ACCELGUARD® HE is a combination accelerating and water-reducing admixture for concrete. It improves the plastic and hardened properties of concrete such as workability, compressive and flexural strength and freeze-thaw resistance. It is a chloride based material, compatible with air entraining agents, but should be dispensed separately into the concrete mix.

Features & Benefits

  • Speeds up the setting time
  • Provides high early strength for fast form stripping
  • Cuts construction cost - no cold weather delays
  • Densifies concrete
  • Minimizes bleeding and segregation and keeps the concrete cohesive


  • Cold weather concreting
  • Structural concrete
  • Concrete block
  • Concrete pipe and many pre-cast items

Specifications / Compliances

  • ASTM C 494, Type C & E admixture specifications
  • AASHTO M 194


ACCELGUARD® HE is available in bulk, 275 gal (1041 L) totes, 55 gal (208 L) drums and 5 gal (18.9 L) pails.
