Technology In Practice Topics Now Available in PDF Format; TIP-13 Has Been Updated

NRMCA’s popular Technology in Practice series (TIPs) is now available in pdf format. All 20 topics can be used by ready mixed concrete industry personnel to support internal as well as customer education. TIPs are developed by the NRMCA Research Engineering and Standards (RES) Committee and are intended as an educational resource for ready mixed concrete industry personnel.

Newly updated, TIP 13 – Chloride Limits in Concrete, addresses the limits on internal chlorides in concrete as addressed in the Building Code, ACI 318. It discusses reasons for the limits, sources of internal chlorides, testing for chlorides and discusses the calculation of chloride content in concrete from the mixture ingredients.
