Industrial floors made of concrete are an integral part of industrial construction. Since these fl oors must withstand heavy mechanical loads over the long term, the concrete used must have especially high performance properties to meet these high requirements.

In recent years there have been many reports concerning damage found on industrial fl oors that was traced to errors during their production. In some cases, the cause of damage was attributed to the use of PCE based superplasticizers when producing the concrete. However, PCE based superplasticizers have proved to be reliable products in practically all areas of concrete construction in the past years and they are also highly suitable for use when constructing industrial floors...
