Shrinkage reducing agents
The final properties of concrete structures are strongly determined by controlling the water content. Errors made at the beginning cannot be controlled later.
A lack of water prevents the cement from fully hydrating which may result in loss of compressive strength, reduced frost resistance and increased susceptibility to chemical attack which can all have adverse effects on the concrete durability. Concrete shrinkage properties during curing and drying are one area of major concern to the industry.
