Join us at the most significant event for the Dutch concrete industry, which is about acquiring knowledge, sharing knowledge and meeting people and products.
The Betondag (concrete day) will for the first time take place in the architectural well-known former factory “Van Nelle Fabriek” in Rotterdam.
‘Betondag’ 2019 theme
This year the theme for the Dutch concrete day is ‘Panorama Beton, een kennismaking’ or panoramic concrete, an introduction. This is a theme that fits the future. It relates to a document named ‘Panoramic Netherlands’ which a Dutch governmental advisory body published in December 2018 and is dedicated to the four most critical future topics:
- climate adaptation
- restructuring agriculture
- energy transition
The future of MagnaDense
Looking at the future of MagnaDense as an aggregate for concrete, we need to start in the past. For over 50 years, our natural iron oxide is used to make high density concrete. One of the first applications we sold to was radiation shielding in a hospital. And over the last five decades, we have seen that the applications have only become more diverse. We supply MagnaDense for high density concrete to a large variety of projects. However, the most common use is still as a concrete aggregate.
We do see a shift towards renewable energy opportunities such as offshore wind turbines and geothermal heating where MagnaDense fulfils the need for weight but also offers benefits because of its ferri-magnetic characteristic.
MagnaDense benefits for concrete
Using our natural mineral as an aggregate in high density concrete will benefit your project when you require;
- radiation shielding characteristics
- space saving
- high submerged/saturated density
- noise and vibration dampening
- thermal energy storage
