Mass Concrete

In thick concrete elements >1,50m, such as the pile cap, foundation and transfer beam, the cement hydration during hardening increases the concrete temperature inside the mass concrete element, which can lead to thermal cracks, water leakage, and structural damage.

With Mass Concrete, the concrete temperature rise during hydration is better controlled than with standard concrete, reducing the risk of thermal cracks and improving the durability of the building.

Benefits
Reduced risk of structural damage linked to thermal cracking
Less risk on long term durability issues, linked to expansive Delayed Ettringite Formation (DEF)
Better compliance to the Vietnamese & international standards on mass concrete.
