Pervious with a purpose

Degussa Admixtures Inc. is using Master Builders technologies to develop contractor-friendly pervious concrete mixtures that improve performance. Ready-mix concrete producers looking to enter the rapidly expanding market for pervious concrete can ask Degussa Admixtures for help with products and mix designs. Pervious concrete is a mix of portland cement, coarse aggregate, water and admixtures. Due to its lack of fine aggregate, its pore structure contains many voids that water can pass through. Interest in pervious concrete has spiked with recent changes in federally mandated stormwater management regulations. Other benefits include easy discharge from the truck, increased working time, improved placeability without adding water, reduced paste drain-down, and increased compressive strength upon hardening.
