Antibacterial Concrete

This special form of concrete controls bacterial growth and is used to help maintain a clean environment in structures at particularly bio-sensitive locations, such as hospitals, laboratories, and farms.

Anti-bacterial ad-mixtures are used against organisms such as insects, fungi, or bacteria that could otherwise damage the property of concrete. Some bacteria can affect concrete quite badly, as the organisms release corrosive chemicals through their metabolic actions on to the material’s surface, and can even promote conditions that start the corrosion of steel – a worrying possibility where a concrete structure has been strengthened by steel rods.

In sensitive locations, prevention really is better than cure so anti-bacterial concrete is a very sensible investment.
