GatorBar

Jones & Sons is now stocking GatorBar at our Terre Haute, Vincennes and Washington locations. An alternative to traditional steel rebar, GatorBar is a Fiber Reinforced Polymer (FRP) with several advantages including:

  • 7x weight advantage over steel. 25 pieces (500 ft) of GatorBar weighs only 47 lbs.
  • Rust-free
  • Priced less than steel.

Cold Weather Concrete

There are two main problems with concrete in cold weather:

Concrete can freeze before it gains strength which breaks up the matrix
Concrete sets more slowly when it is cold—very slow below 50°F; below 40°F the hydration reaction basically stops and the concrete doesn’t gain strength

But these are concrete temperatures not air temperatures. So when it’s cold, we need to protect the concrete until it can handle the cold on its own. The general rule is that once the concrete has gained strength to about 500 psi then it’s OK. The magical thing that happens is that at almost the same time that the concrete achieves 500 psi compressive strength, hydration of the cement has consumed enough of the water in the original mix so that even if it does freeze, there’s not enough water left in the pores to damage the concrete. With most concrete, even at 50°, this happens during the second day.

To help it reach that 500 psi strength, then, there are two things we can do in cold weather: Change the mix to get it to set more quickly or protect the concrete from the cold—or more likely, both.
