An admixture which, when added to concrete, mortar, or grout, increases the rate of hydration of hydraulic cement, shortens the time of set in concrete, or increases the rate of hardening or strength development. Accelerating admixtures can be divided into …
The retardation of initial setting time by the use of admixture is affected by three factors, that is, the ambient temperature, the dosage used, and the time of adding to the batch. Temperature Effect on Retardation of Initial Setting Time Temperature can have a detrimental effect to concrete
Quick-setting admixtures made from materials—such as tricalcium aluminate, ferric salts, and sodium fluoride—promote flash setting for shotcrete and seal leaks against hydrostatic pressure. Miscellaneous solid admixtures —such as calcium-aluminate cements, finely divided silica gels, soluble quaternary ammonium silicates, even silica fume—can accelerate strength gain or hydration.
Retarding admixtures, which slow the setting rate of concrete, are used to counteract the accelerating effect of hot weather on concrete setting. High temperatures often cause an increased rate of hardening which makes placing and finishing difficult. Retarders keep concrete workable during placement and delay the initial set of concrete. Most retarders also function as water reducers and may ...
Set Accelerating Admixtures. Set accelerating admixtures are best defined as those which, when added to concrete, mortar or paste, increase the rate of hydration of hycraulic cement, shorten the time of setting and increase the rate of early strength development.

Concrete, usually Portland cement concrete, is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens over time—most frequently a lime-based cement binder, such as Portland cement, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement.
Quick setting cement also known as fast setting cement or rapid set cement has less initial and final setting time. It sets quickly so the cement paste can take the required shape rapidly. It has an initial setting time of 5 minutes and a final setting time of 30 minutes as against 30 minutes and 300 months for OPC respectively.
QUIKRETE Fast-Setting Concrete Mix is for construction and repair of concrete where rapid setting is required. Use for projects such as driveways, sidewalks, patios, steps and footings. Use where a thickness of 2 inches (5 cm) or more is required.
