At the recent BETONDAG in Rotterdam, LKAB Minerals presented MagnaDense, the high density natural aggregate to produce heavy concrete.
Potential for Dutch concrete projects
When you use MagnaDense from LKAB Minerals, a high density aggregate, you can make heavy concrete. At the event location “De Doelen” in Rotterdam we met many engineers, contractor and concrete mixing companies. Some already had experience with our MagnaDense products. However, we also spoke to some engineers not aware of the potential that high density concrete could bring to different Dutch projects such as:
- Radiation shielding walls for:
- Cancer treatment rooms
- Nuclear facilities
- Counterweights for bridges and sluices
- Coastal protection
- Ground stabilization
Experience and references for heavy concrete
We can refer to many finished projects in which our customers used MagnaDense for high density concrete production. Not only in The Netherlands but also in the rest of the world. Because of our experience, we understand the questions and difficulties that come with the selection of the right material for your construction projects.
LKAB Minerals can provide you with the technical support to help you to make the best selection. We know when MagnaDense is the optimal ingredient in your project.
