SLAB-ON-GRADE

Concrete to construct and repair slab-on-grade foundations.
Slab-on-grade construction for commercial, institutional, recreational, and industrial floor slab applications use a wide range of design options, including reinforced concrete, unreinforced concrete, post-tensioned concrete, and fiber-reinforced concrete for both structural and non-structural slabs. Finishing options range from polished concrete, to sanitary seamless flooring systems or decorative overlays, tile, carpet, or coatings. Rapid Set®’s flooring line offers a wide range of solutions for major slab repairs to self-leveling underlayments and polishable overlayments. All engineered to speed time to completion without sacrificing performance. Komponent® shrinkage-compensating concrete solutions are engineered to create jointless slabs-on-ground that enhance the performance of all design approaches and in-service conditions, and effectively overcome the most common floor slab challenges – drying shrinkage cracking, curling, corner breaks, spalling and joint maintenance.
