How to ensure concrete durability?

Both making wise choice of cement type based on suitability, and the strict compliance with restrictions in cement contents and water/cement ratios defined by standards, should be considered decisive factors to ensure durability of concrete.

Additionally, a minimum thickness of reinforcement cover also contributes to improve durability and quality of concreting.

Construction works to be carried out within 5 km from the coast are particularly relevant, due to exposure to salt-rich atmospheres with high chloride content from marine origin.

 

These above mentioned premises are mandatory to prevent exposed reinforcement steel over time.
