At 800[degrees]C the relative compressive strengths were the same for concretes with and without PP fibers.
North American production and practice experts are teaming to promote sound concrete mixing and placement methods in poor nations, where builders' use of shovels to mix material for homes and buildings has the potential for devastating consequences due to finished concretes' low compressive strengths.
We have innovated and developed a novel process and a system (consisting of the GEM-TECHTM machine and GEM-SOLTM catalyst) that creates a superior foam , which does not drain off for at least 12 hours, providing sufficient time for the cement to set resulting in high compressive strengths.
A foamed concrete mix with a replacement level of 25% of sieved only OPA exhibited higher compressive strengths than that of the control mix.
