With the worldwide increasing economic dynamics and the associated strongly increasing demand for building materials for residential and commercial construction, for infrastructure and drainage, the consumption of resources for the construction industry is also growing dramatically.
Nevertheless, concrete is indispensable.
Despite being considered a mature market, the European construction and real estate sectors are evolving fast. New societal trends are pushing the construction industry to adapt to the changing needs of the users and to provide tailor-made solutions for the clients.
Translucent concrete can be used to create room dividers, partition walls, stair treads or furniture which, despite their solidity, allow daylight to enter the interior of the room with little loss.
Even thick concrete elements receive a remarkable lightness due to their unusual translucency.
Concrete is by far the most widely used building material in the world, because many construction tasks are to be guaranteed only with this mineral building material because of its primary functional advantages such as durability, load-bearing capacity or fire sensitivity.
In order to save resources there are trends in the industry, new technologies and developments, such as high-performance cements and infra-lightweight concretes, new reinforcement technologies, and reinforcing materials such as carbon and textile reinforcements, or design weight-minimal structures by gradient concrete.
Concrete construction with the ECO-CSSB additive is similar to the production of traditional concrete. In addition, there are many advantages over traditional concrete production. The stability of the concrete is not affected by seawater erosion. This kind of production is cost-effective, environmentally friendly and minimizes the removal of river sand.
Sea sand is particularly suitable for the construction of coastal and island buildings, dams or civil engineering.
