A Quick Video on a Key Concrete Topic
The stringent NZS 3101 covers most aspects of Concrete Construction in detail, and includes allowances for admixtures and surface-applied concrete protection. Doug Hamlin is here to talk about certain features included in the standard, and why even NZS 3101 can’t prevent micro cracking.
Destructive micro cracking can impact on concrete constructed even to the stringent NZS 3101 concrete construction standard. Micro cracking accelerates, and eventually the reinforcing steel is exposed to contamination. Concrete’s deterioration process is exponential, not linear.
Concrete as the Moisture Barrier
What if the concrete itself was its own moisture barrier – preventing chloride ingress and steel corrosion throughout?
What are the benefits, for both the service life and the appearance over time?
Talk to us today about how AQURON colloidal silica hydrogel concrete durability and waterproofing treatment can help you achieve a service life above and beyond what was previously thought possible.
