EFFECTIVENESS OF ABSORPTIVE FORM LINER FOR HORIZONTAL SURFACES

THE RESULTS OF LABORATORY TESTING INDICATE THAT ABSORPTIVE FORM LINER IMPROVES THE QUALITY OF HORIZONTAL SURFACES OF CONCRETE IF PLACED WHILE THE CONCRETE IS STILL PLASTIC. THE TOP 3/4 INCH OF LABORATORY SPECIMENS HAS HIGHER DENSITY, LESS WATER ABSORPTION, BETTER ABRASION RESISTANCE, BETTER AIR VOID DISTRIBUTION, LESS PERMEABILITY, AND RETAINS THE HIGH SKID RESISTANCE OF STANDARD CURED CONCRETE. THE AFL WAS STILL EFFECTIVE AFTER BEING USED TWICE IN THE LABORATORY.
