Self-healing concrete seals cracks. This saves the costs for special coatings or waterproof membranes. Furthermore, there are no additional costs for injection works to repair cracks that appear before delivery of the project.
40% less shrinkage reinforcement needed
Due to the self-healing properties, larger crack widths can be accepted in the design. As a result, approximately 40% less shrinkage reinforcement is required. In addition to environmental and cost benefits, this also minimizes the risk of rock pockets.
30-50% CO2 footprint reduction concrete
Self-healing concrete with a longer design life, without membranes and with less shrinkage reinforcement, will result in significant savings on the CO2 footprint.
