Rapid-Repair Cements Seminar

  • February 25
  • 9:00 am–7:00 pm

Rapid repair cement materials are a hot topic in concrete research and are actively being used across the industry to reduce construction times. However, the chemistry of these systems can be quite different from portland cement, and therefore the durability and constructability of concrete made with rapid repair cements is often not well understood.  This seminar provides people who are familiar with standard concrete systems an overview of rapid repair cements, their chemistry, uses, durability concerns, and constructability.
