March 8 and 9, visitors and exhibitors to the Baustoffkolloquium 2016 gathered to discuss the concrete precast and sand & gravel market in Eastern Germany.
At the Cottbus Technical University a variety of exhibitors displayed their products and services they offer to the civil engineering and construction market. LKAB Minerals’ Sales Manager Thomas Tepper participated to present LKAB Minerals’ heavy aggregate MagnaDense and met with the industry finest. “The exhibitors showed a variety of products and services regarding concrete aggregates. It was therefore a good match with our own natural mineral” Thomas commented.
Heavy concrete applications
At this show we displayed information about our high density aggregate MagnaDense and the opportunities for heavyweight concrete in the precast market.
When mixed into concrete, MagnaDense will increase density from a standard 2.4 t/m3 to a maximum of 4.0 t/m3. Besides use in the precast concrete market, heavy concrete is used for applications such as:
- Ballasting bridges
- Parking garages and buildings starting below ground
- Radiation shielding in hospitals, nuclear facilities and laboratories
- Offshore structures
- Coastal and erosion protection
