Farmington Hills, Mich. — The American Concrete Institute (ACI) announced a new webinar on chemical admixtures for concrete has been scheduled for April 4, 2017, 1:00 pm EDT. “An Overview of Chemical Admixtures for Concrete” will be presented by Dr. Charles Nmai, PhD, PE, FACI, Manager of Engineering Services at BASF Corporation.

The webinar will provide a concise overview of chemical admixtures — what they are; their benefits and limitations; and how they are used, either singularly or synergistically, to improve concrete construction.

Learning objectives of the webinar:

  • Gain basic knowledge on current chemical admixture technologies and how they function.
  • Explain how admixtures can be used either singularly or in combination to improve concrete construction.
  • Troubleshoot some potential issues and undesired effects in concrete.
  • Describe how operational efficiencies can be achieved through the use of chemical admixtures.

The webinar costs $36 for ACI members and provides a Continuing Education Credit (CEU) of 0.15 (1.5 PDH).

Additional webinars are scheduled for 2017. Details will be released during the year. ACI University webinars highlight ACI’s strategic plan to increase participation of and add value for its members, chapter members, and customers.
