Construction Material Concrete

Designing an entire watertight building from the basement to the roof requires the development of solutions for the widest range of applications, solutions which can be installed practically and provide permanent protection.

Sustainability

Concrete is one of the most versatile and durable construction materials known to man, making it the most widely used construction material in the world. It is ubiquitous in our built environment, being used in schools, hospitals, homes, offices, roads, railways, dams etc.. Given the high demand for concrete, its sustainable production and application is an issue of increasing importance for the construction industry and regulators worldwide.

The Five Concrete Components

Cement and Binder, Concrete Agregates, Concrete Admixtures, Concrete Additions and Supplementary Cementitious Materials (SCM).

Concrete Application

Crane and Bucket Concrete, Pumped Concrete, Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC), Concrete for Traffic Areas, Mass Concrete, Monolithic Concrete for Industrial Floors, Roller-Compacted Concrete (RCC), Slipform Concrete, Sprayed Concrete, Wet Precast Concrete, Tunnel Segment Concrete, Semi-dry Concrete.

Concrete Types

Waterproof Concrete, Corrosion Resistant Concrete, Frost and Freeze / Thaw Resistant Concrete, Sulfate Resistant Concrete, Fire Resistant Concrete, Alkali-Silica-Reaction Resistant Concrete, Abrasion Resistant Concrete, Chemical Resistant Concrete, High Strength Concrete, Shrinkage Controlled Concrete, Fiber Reinforced Concrete, Fair-faced Concrete, Colored Concrete, Underwater Concrete, Lightweight Concrete, Heavyweight Concrete.

White Box

Concrete structures such as below ground basements normally have to be watertight to prevent damage due to moisture or water ingress. This can be achieved by applying an external waterproofing system either as coatings, membranes or other surface applied systems or by using an integral waterproofing system that renders the structural concrete watertight.
