Summary

A date for your diary - Programme to follow.

The construction industry´s appetite for more fluid and mobile concrete increases year on year. Not only does this make placing and handling of concrete easier, the appropriate use of admixtures will improve concretes´ quality and durability.

Whilst continuous progress in developing an ever increasing range of products is being made by the admixture manufactures, the rheological behaviour of the concrete can be very different to that of a traditional concrete. Tailored admixtures for exacting project situations are also now more prevalent. For the Engineer and specifier, an understanding of modern admixture technology is becoming increasing important.
 
This afternoon seminar will explore the past and present nature of admixtures, aspects of rheology improvement and retention, specialist applications and future developments.
 
A light buffet lunch on arrival and refreshments will be included. Booking in advance will be required.
