    Waterproof and Abrasion resistant concrete
    A look at a couple of value added concrete categories that are gaining momentum to help structures, last longer, and become more sustainable!

    Many questions come up while we are reviewing restoration projects.  Two very common ones are:
              1.  What did they or did they not do to the concrete during construction that lead to me being here?
              2.  What can I do to ensure that the concrete will last up to and past its (new) design life through my restoration efforts?

    In this presentation we will touch on a couple of technologies that are commonly used in both new and existing construction today to help concrete structures last beyond their design life and/or extend their life past a performance challenge that needs to be rectified.

    Waterproofing Admixtures for Concrete:

    • Benefits
    • Overview of Different Types
    • Distinguishing one from another (Look at the testing testing testing)
    • Crystalline solutions for negative side repairs


    Abrasion Resistant Treatments for Concrete

    • Why protect your concrete from Erosion or Abrasion?
    • Overview of Current Methods of surface applied protection
    • Overview of trending concrete additives that supply protection.

    Brian MacNeil is the Regional Manager of North America for Kryton International Inc.  At Kryton we help our construction partners build dry and durable concrete structures using our sustainably SMART Concrete Technologies.  Brian has been involved in concrete construction for more than 30 years and has worked on various projects in more than 40 states and all 10 provinces (that’s what Canada calls its states).  From concrete utility tunnels 150 feet under New York City to the wine caves in the hills of Northern California to the ski resorts of Colorado and British Columbia mountains, he can attest that in all climates concrete is typically grey, will stay where you intend to put it, and it will crack.  He has been involved in ICRI for more than 10 years and currently sits on the National Executive as the Treasurer.  He appreciates the chance to connect with your chapter and surrounding areas and is excited to share his experiences with you and learn from your ICRI chapter.
