With Sakrete Fast Setting concrete, you’re setting posts in 30 minutes – without mixing. Hanging fence stringers the same day, not the next. Pouring slabs that are ready for traffic in 6 hours, not 24 hours. Getting in, getting out, getting on to the next job while the other guy is waiting for his mix to set. It’s the concrete upgrade that pays for itself. Faster set. Less prep. More jobs. More revenue. Easy choice. See the proof at SakreteFast.com
