Re: Type K cement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gail,
 
It was for stabilization of a the ruins of a historic stone masonry structure for which very long serviceability is expected.  The concrete is in a concealed reinforced concrete bond beam into which several measures were incorporated to minimize probability of reinforcement corrosion.  The purpose of the Type K cement was to minimize shrinkage cracking thereby minimizing penetration of CO2 [carbonation] and Cl ions from the nearby coast.
