Customer Questions & Answers

Hi how much do i add for a 80 lb bag of cement

Hi how much do i add for a 80 lb bag of cement
Asked by: jb
The recommended dosage range of QUIKRETE® Thermo-Lube® per each 80 lb bag of QUIKRETE® Concrete Mix is 3 to 10 fluid ounces (90 to 300 milliliters). For maximum acceleration, use the highest recommended dosage. Do not use more than the maximum recommended dosage. QUIKRETE® Thermo-Lube® does contain calcium chloride, so it should not be used in applications where it will come in contact with steel reinforcement. If color is important, the dosage rate of QUIKRETE® Thermo-Lube® should be established and consistently maintained throughout the project.

Can this be added to joint compound as well?

I want to use this to speed up the dry time of some joint compound for some drywall work I am doing. Is this a good idea?
Asked by: madman19
No, DO NOT add QUIKRETE® Thermo-Lube to drywall jointing compound. QUIKRETE® Thermo-Lube is only designed for use in Portland cement based concretes and mortars to accelerate the setting characteristics.
