Cementaid Seminar

On 17th December, 2013 many ACI-KC members attended a technical seminar entitled 'Caltite: A Waterproofing and Corrosion Inhibitor Admixture'. The seminar, held at the Holiday Inn Hotel in Salmiya, was sponsored by Cementaid UK Limited. Cementaid UK was founded in 1954, and specializes in the manufacture of advanced admixtures for concrete.

Mr. Ken Howes, the firm's Technical Manager, conducted the seminar, and in his presentation he emphasized the characteristics of Caltite, which is a hydrophobic, pore-blocking and anodic admixture.

He explained how the material works and the benefits associated with its use, which include producing design-life maintenance free, sustainable and durable structures. A number of case studies illustrating the benefits of the material were also presented.
