Like steel, these PVA fibers have high tensile strength and a greater modulus of elasticity than regular concrete.

Unlike steel, PVA fibers develop a molecular and chemical bond with the cement during hydration and curing.

Consolidating and compacting freshly placed concrete with an internal vibrator is a fairly simple and straightforward process.

Following the alkali-silica reaction (ASR), an expansive gel forms, that creates extensive cracks and damage on structural members.

On the surface of concrete pavements the ASR can cause pop-outs, i.e.

There's a lot of ways you can mix concrete for countertops, but this recipe is a proven, high quality mix from our friends over at Concrete Countertop Supply.

The weights used in this countertop recipe will produce 1 cubic foot of concrete mix.

So if you have 34pounds of Portland simply add 34m L of OPTIMUM 380. This is a high performance countertop recipe that can be used for just about any application.

C-64 CONCRETE DEFOAMER & DENSIFYING ADMIXTURE C-64 is a highly concentrated defoamer & densifying admixture specially designed for self consolidating type concrete. All these materials are available at Concrete Countertop Supply.

Federal White Type I Cement is a true portland cement manufactured with selected raw materials to insure negligible amounts of iron and manganese oxides so as not to produce the gray color of normal portland cement.
