Webinar: Industrial Floors When Using PLC and/or Supplementary Cementitious Materials

Date: Apr 12, 2023

Duration: 1h 15m

Project specifications often require concrete contractors to place "green" floors to help to reduce the project's carbon footprint. In some cases, this request is a material specification calling for ingredients that decarbonize the concrete mix. These ingredients can include Portland limestone cement (C95 IL), additional supplementary cement materials, and even the inclusion of liquid C02.

Meeting these specifications for decarbonized mix designs can become complicated. The factors often discussed in the project phase include ASR mitigation techniques when local aggregates are reactive, accelerated project schedules and extreme weather conditions. Resultantly, there have been reports of placing difficulties, low strength gain and indications of reduced long-term surface durability.

This webinar will address questions and concerns that should be discussed in all preconstruction meetings when preparing for green concrete placement.

It's your opportunity to be prepared when asked to provide a "green" industrial floor, slab or pavement.

Learning objectives from this webinar:

  • How the introduction of C595 IL cements has affected industrial floor installations

  • How forensic testing can be used to identify issues when there are problems with green concrete slabs

  • How concrete contractors can be proactive when providing durable "green" industrial floors

 

Contractors, architects and engineers who attend this webinar will be given a Certificate of Attendance for self-reporting certification purposes.
