Quikrete has introduced what it calls the first concrete mix with one-hour working time, three-hour walk-on time, and 6,500 PSI compressive strength with crack, freeze-thaw and corrosion resistance.

Quikrete Q-Max Pro "enables contractors to complete projects quickly while meeting the necessary structural construction and/or repair requirements," says the company, the largest North American maker of packaged concrete and cement mixes.

Quikrete Q-Max Pro features fiberglass fibers for crack resistance as well as a corrosion inhibitor.

The "dynamic and versatile" mix provides the working time and rapid strength gain needed for horizontal concrete applications such as slabs, parking garages, bridge decks, roads, balconies, steps, floors, ramps, sidewalks and patios, the company says.

The product also features alkali-resistant fiberglass fibers for crack resistance, an integral corrosion inhibitor, an air-entraining admixture for a quality finish, easy workability and freeze-thaw durability, according to Quikrete.

Applied at a minimum thickness of two inches, Quikrete Q-Max Pro reaches 1,000 PSI in three hours; 3,000 PSI in 24 hours; and 6,500 PSI in 28 days, the company says. The product meets ASTM C387/C387M specifications for packaged, dry, combined materials for concrete and high-strength mortar.

Quikrete A-Max Pro is available in 80-pound bags for less than $10.
