The resistance that concrete exhibits to deterioration due to environmental or chemical factors and the
protection of reinforcement from corrosion.
We can improve the durability of concrete by providing you with specially designed mixes, with lower water content,
more powerful chemical admixtures and most importantly with cementitious
materials such as Fly Ash, Slag or Microsilica. These materials are especially good in making concrete
withstand the attack of environmental factors, such as salts, chlorides and sulphates, making concrete more
water-resistant and strong. As a side bonus, these materials are also very good for the environment by reducing the carbon dioxide emmisions ! This makes your concrete very Green and environmentally friendly.
Life of a building in engineering terms means “”Service life” – the duration that the structure can
last WITHOUT significant repairs or maintenance
The Coastal regions of Saudi Arabia have a very harsh climate. High temperatures, high humidity, high salt
content in the soil, winds carrying salt water from the Red Sea or from the Arabian Sea. All these significantly reduce the
service life of a structure.
