In order to produce a long-lasting, functional structure, any abrasive or erosive forces need to be ameliorated through its design.

This educational unit examines concrete hardening technologies – comparing features and limitations – so the best method can be selected.

Learning Objectives

  • Identify problems that arise when a concrete surface experiences abrasion and erosion.
  • Analyze common methods used to protect concrete and the potential limitations of each method.
  • Examine how integral admixtures can improve concrete application for building professionals.
  • Explore ways that integral admixtures resolved complicated building projects.

Pre-Requisite: Basic knowledge of concrete.
