Abstract: In order to obtain concrete resistant to frost and/or frost and de-icing salts it is necessary to use air entraining admixtures. The application of this type of admixtures affects the concrete structure, as well as the other properties of concrete. To determine the effect of different types of air entraining admixtures, four concrete mixtures were prepared including: reference concrete and three with added air entraining admixtures. The results of testing the properties of fresh concrete as well as mechanical and physical properties of hardened concrete (strength, bulk density, resistance of concrete to frost or de-icing salts, pore spacing factor) were compared.
