Storing Concrete Chemicals in Cold Weather: Product Storage Recommendations

It’s that time of year again – time for the annual reminder that fall is here, and winter is right around the corner – meaning now is the time to review your product storage practices to ensure your products are properly protected to maintain both maximum shelf life and optimal performance.

Also, be sure and remind your customers which products need to be kept out of the cold and away from freezing conditions, and that storing these products at temperatures below our recommendation can impact shelf life and performance.
