Concrete Shrinkage Reduction
Concrete is known to be prone to cracking, especially due to drying and autogenous shrinkage, leading to costly construction mitigation efforts and repairs of slabs and structures. However, our innovative magnesia-based technology, when used as an additive to concrete, has shown a minimum of 80% shrinkage reduction across many applications. Its shrinkage reduction properties help to prevent cracking or curling, therefore minimizing water and salt infiltration, reducing required maintenance and repairs, and improving overall concrete durability.


The product utilizes two synergistic technologies to fight shrinkage cracks: expansive components and pore water surface tension reduction.


Applicable in all types of concretes and mortars, whether cast-in-place, mass, precast or pre-stressed, and may be used in straight Portland cement mixes or blended cement mixes.
