Shrinkage Reducing Admixtures
Although shrinkage is normal it can be reduced by using additives that aid reducing shrinkage cracking. Shrinkage Reducing Admixtures also reduce curling and can extend the distance between control joints. Together with proper construction practices, such as reducing sub-base and solid surface friction, cracking can be reduced further.
Shrinkage Reducing Admixtures have commonly been used on slab-on-grade, slab-on-deck, arena floors, water reservoirs and for applications where floor flatness is required.
