    Concrete Placement and Finishability

    Target Audience: Concrete Producers and Contractors (*All industry professionals are welcome to attend)

    The placement and finishability of ready mix concrete during slab construction is dependent upon the project-specific needs. A concrete mixture must meet the desired performance properties that can vary significantly throughout the entire construction process. No single construction project is the same and therefore neither is the concrete mixture. This webinar will address what factors affect concrete placement and finishability while providing insight on how to achieve your desired concrete mixture performance.​

    Integral Waterproofing for Concrete

    Target AudienceAll industry professionals

    Water penetration, leakage and a continuously wet concrete structure can lead to durability problems, an undesirable damp/humid atmosphere, mold growth, and premature deterioration. This presentation will discuss the use of permeability-reducing admixtures (PRAs) for concrete, designed to minimize/prevent water penetration. Attendees will learn what a PRA is and how it is qualified and specified. Example applications of use, including concrete production, placement, and projects will be highligh​​ted.​
