Wear resistance is required to provide abrasion and erosion protection in order to prolong the service life of concrete. An integral hardening admixture is critical for a functional, superior and long-lasting structure. This educational unit examines exactly how concrete hardening technologies work, differing features and benefits, so the best abrasion and erosion resistant methods can be specified for each project.

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.
