The work is devoted to the study of changes in the time of mobility of concrete mixtures, which are used for commercial concrete with monolithic construction. The in-situ concrete quality depends on the uniformity, viability and workability of the concrete mix intended for the transportation, unloading and workability at the construction site. One of the techniques used for the solution of this problem can be step-by-step addition of chemical admixtures or introduction of setting retarders whose efficiency is expressed in an increased resiliency of the concrete mix that is extended by two and more hours. Each solution has its advantages and drawbacks; therefore the efficiency can only be estimated under specific conditions taking into account the cost of concrete mix and opportunities for the realization of each individual solution. Were received results showing the presence of a problem of mobility loss of concrete mixtures with chemical additives of high water-reducing action. The use of such technological techniques as increasing the initial mobility and gradual introduction of supplements to superplasticizer proved to be effective technological solutions.
