The LATICRETE SUPERCAP System is a time-saving, cost-effective method in finishing new concrete or capping existing slabs. This proven lean tool provides benefits right from the start of concrete placement in Division 03 and flows through to Division 09.
As a safety requirement, all exterior concrete surfaces must have a slip-resistant surface. The most common method for this is specifying a ‘broom finish.’ But, is that all there is to it? Specifications must also satisfy owner requirements for appearance, flatness, texture, as well as drainage.
Out of the many types of bridges used across the country, adjacent prestressed, concrete box-beams have become popular for short and medium spans. Since these bridges are cost-effective, fast to construct, and easy to design, they are preferred by many state and local agencies. Currently used in about two-thirds of the country, many of these bridges are now approaching the end of their life span. Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) could offer game-changing advances for this type of structure.
