Shrinkage-reducing admixtures - Concrete

Shrinkage-reducing admixtures This is achieved by treating the cause of drying shrinkage within the capillaries and pores of the cement paste. Such admixtures should not be confused with shrinkage-compensating materials that are normally added at more than 5% by mass of cement to create an expansive reaction within the cement paste to counteract the effects of drying shrinkage.
