TECHNIQUE TO MAKE CONCRETE DEVELOPED USING SALT WATER

A process by which concrete can be made with salt water has been developed by two European companies. It involves mixing various chemicals with concrete in order to neutralize the negative effects of salt water. This process would be most beneficial in areas where fresh water is not easily available. It may also be possible to use this technique with steel-reinforced concrete as well. Seawater connot generally be used with steel reinforcement because the chlorine has a weakening effect. At least another year of testing will be required to determine if this process can counteract the adverse effects of salt water in steel reinforced concrete.
