08:10 AM

Benefits of Ultra Low Permeability Concrete in the Building Envelope – An Integral Approach.

08:10 AM - 09:10 AM

The exceptional durability of portland cement concrete is a major reason why it is the world’s most widely used construction material. But material limitations, design and construction practices, and severe exposure conditions can cause concrete to deteriorate, which may result in aesthetic, functional, or structural problems. The Portland Cement Association prescribes proper concrete coverage of reinforcing steel and a Low Permeability concrete mix design as the primary goals for “Best Practice”. A talented, seasoned contractor is the answer to the first…..Vapor Lock enhanced concrete may be a reasonable answer to the second.
