During the performance of concreting tasks in the winter of 1971-72, in the construction of facilities in the Kakhovskaya irrigation system and the Northern Crimean Canal, antifreeze admixtures were introduced, assuring the necessary conditions for its hardening at negative temperatures. The introduction into concrete, of both the combined and the single component antifreeze admixture promotes an appreciable prolonged improvement in the convenient pouring quality of the concrete mixture. The use use of concrete with antifreeze admixtures made it possible to eliminate the seasonal nature in performing concrete operations and to lower the cost of pouring one cubic meter of concrete by 3.5 rubles as compared with the pouring methods involving heating.
