An essential characteristic of concrete is its durability. Knowledge about concrete technology together with a full range of appropriate concrete admixtures will help meet concrete durability requirements.
WHY IS DURABILITY SO IMPORTANT?
As the cost of structures increases so does the need to keep these structures in service for as long as possible. Durability enhancers effectively reduces the life-cycle costs and aids in the investment decision. Limiting and preventing cracks protects the high alkaline environment that the concrete inherently creates. This, in turn, protects the reinforcement from corrosion. This is one of the most important attributes of concrete durability and one of the hardest to achieve consistently,
