TU07 - Effective Use of Chemical Admixtures in Concrete Construction

Tuesday, January 21 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM | Room N109, North Hall, Las Vegas Convention Center « Back

Chemical admixtures are an essential component of concrete mixtures and they can provide a wide range of benefits in both fresh and hardened concrete. Designed for the advanced user, this seminar will provide in-depth information on chemical admixtures, including current technologies such as workability-retaining admixtures and durability-enhancing admixtures, and how they can be used to effectively enhance concrete construction and achieve operational efficiencies. Incompatibility and troubleshooting of potential issues associated with the use of chemical admixtures will be discussed and projects highlighting the successful use of admixtures will also be presented.

  1. Explore advanced knowledge of current admixture technologies and how they function
  2. Declare how admixtures can be used either singularly or in combination to improve concrete construction
  3. Troubleshoot potential issues and undesired effects in concrete
  4. Determine how operational efficiencies can be achieved through the use of chemical admixtures
