Self Sealing Concrete Using Superabsorbent Polymer

Concrete throughout its life passes by many phases and changes, starting from initial shrinkage from hydration to serviceability hair cracking after loading. Concrete has countless advantages with no-doubt at all and is the reason why it is the second most widely used material after water. During these phases the concrete also…continue reading →

Scientists from Singapore have developed Conflexpave a bendable concrete

Nanyang Technological University (NTU Singapore) scientists from the NTU-JTC Industrial Infrastructure Innovation Centre (I³C) have invented a new type of concrete called #ConFlexPave that is bendable yet stronger and longer lasting than regular concrete which is heavy, brittle and breaks under tension.This innovation allows the creation of slim precast pavement…continue reading →

Concrete Vibration, Concrete Vibrators and its types

Quality of concrete depends on many factors among which the most vulnerable and defenseless is workmanship. During pouring the concrete and execution of work cautious supervision is imperative. The supervisor has to look for many things including the finishing of concrete, pouring quantity, at-site testing, unremitting and continual supply of…continue reading →
