Design Assist: Structural and Architectural Concrete
GCP manufactures a wide variety of concrete admixtures and fibres to meet design and construction requirements.
Corrosion inhibitors cost-effectively protect reinforcement in areas such as parking garages. Cracking and shrinkage in deck toppings are mitigated through the use of synthetic macro-fibres and shrinkage-reducing admixtures. Integral colour, surface retarders, and high-range water reducers are combined to create architectural precast panels and precast/prestressed elements.
To produce consistent quality concrete, every step of the process must be monitored and controlled. Verifi® is a patented concrete management system providing sophisticated, automated process monitoring and control during transit from the ready-mix plant to the jobsite. Verifi® offers a new level of concrete quality control by enabling monitoring of critical concrete properties and automated addition of water or admixtures to maintain optimum concrete slump control and minimum concrete variability.
