NEVADA'S EXPERIENCE WITH FINISHING OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES
This report covers the fine surface finishing of concrete structures, developed and implemented by the Nevada State Highway Department since 1964. The problem concerned the unsightly appearance of concrete structures due to a dark gray color, non-uniform shading and uneven surface texture and the confusion by contractors as to what constituted an acceptable concrete finish. The development of a bonded grout cement that can be sprayed on the structure, with a wide selection of pigments and its cost is described.
