References from around the world

Our concrete accelerator admixture has been used by leading concrete manufacturers and on multiple construction sites.

Incheon International Airport, South KoreaIncheon International Airport, South Korea

NitCal was chosen for its concrete setting accelerator benefits, partly due to cold conditions, and for its long term strength benefits. Incheon is the largest airport in South Korea: every year since 2005, the airport has been rated as the best airport in the world by the International Airports Council.

 

Troll A, situated in the North Sea

Troll A, situated in the North Sea

The world’s tallest moveable concrete object (“Troll A”, situated in the North Sea) could only be built, and deployed on schedule, with the use of NitCal. The Troll A gas and oil platform’s construction time needed to be shorter than originally planned. It, therefore, became necessary to accelerate the concrete setting by using NitCal.

Easy to use

Building on its nitrates expertise, Yara first developed NitCal in the early 1990s, since then, this concrete accelerator admixture has been sold around the world. NitCal is a mixture of specific nitrate salts, which are used as an accelerating admixture for concrete, reducing the time from starting pouring to final cement setting.

Easy to useNitCal is both safe and easy to use, and available in granules or liquid solution. It is used by major manufacturers of concrete but also in many projects for all types of construction: buildings, large civil engineering works, bridges etc.

NitCal blends with the concrete before or after mixing in order to improve its performance.

In addition, NitCal is an environmentally friendly product which is non-hazardous and does not cause alkali-aggregate reaction (AAR).

With NitCal, sites may continue to operate even in particularly cold weather. Frost or extreme temperatures in winter need no longer disrupt your building plans.
