Only Hycrete Meets Both Criteria for Permeability-Reducing Admixtures
Date:10/23/2013

Carlstadt, N.J. (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

Hycrete, Inc., a leader in moisture and corrosion protection technologies for concrete, is proud to be the only North American supplier of admixtures meeting both criteria for permeability-reducing admixtures according to ACI 212 Chapter 15. Hycrete’s admixtures meet the criteria for permeability-reducing admixtures in both hydrostatic (PRAH) and non-hydrostatic conditions (PRAN), and are a proven solution for providing long-term durability in structures exposed to water and dissolved chemicals, such as chlorides. Hycrete admixtures also have the additional benefit of meeting the criteria for corrosion-inhibiting admixtures according to ACI 212 Chapter 13.

Moisture migration into concrete is the leading cause of concrete degradation worldwide. There are two primary water transport mechanisms in concrete: permeability and capillary absorption or sorptivity.

Permeability is the movement of water due to a pressure gradient, such as when concrete is under hydrostatic pressure. ACI 212 Chapter 15 refers to permeability-reducing admixtures for concrete exposed to hydrostatic conditions as PRAH’s. Concretes with Hycrete have been shown to withstand tremendous hydrostatic pressure in laboratory testing, and more importantly, in below water-table structures worldwide (as in the University of Washington Medicine pictured here). Most engineers address hydrostatic conditions and reduce permeability by simply increasing cementitious content in the mix design. By increasing cement content or by adding fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag (GGBS), or silica fume to the mix, permeability reductions are both achievable and economical. However, densifying the concrete alone does not stop permeability. Hycrete admixtures add an add
