Concrete Admixtures & Concrete Curing Compounds (CADD/CCC

Concrete admixtures are used to improve the behavior of concrete under various conditions. Chemical admixtures reduce the cost of construction, modify properties of hardened concrete, ensure quality of concrete during mixing, transporting, placing, and/or curing, and overcome certain emergencies during concrete operations.

Epoxy resin admixture for concrete

This thesis describes laboratory tests on concrete having epoxy as an admixture. Cylinders for compression and elastic modulus tests were cured under two different curing conditions, standard laboratory cure and a simulated job cure. Beams cured under laboratory conditions were tested for flexural strength.
