Fairfield, N.J. – Hycrete, Inc., a leader in waterproofing and corrosion protection technologies for concrete, is proud to announce that it has been approved for use as a Type S admixture under AASHTO’s guidelines for Chemical Admixtures for Concrete. Hycrete’s X1002 met or exceeded all requirements and has been fully approved by AASHTO for use on bridge decks and roadway infrastructure.
The American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials, (AASHTO) is comprised of members from all 50 State Departments of Transportation. As the standards setting body for building design and construction on all highway, air, rail, water and public transportation infrastructure in the United States, AASHTO publishes specifications, test protocols and guidelines used for transportation projects.
As part of its approval, Hycrete X1002 was tested against control mixtures to ensure that the Hycrete treated samples could meet the requirements of AASHTO M194 and Table 1 of ASTM C494. Through three rounds of testing, Hycrete treated concrete exceeded the standards of compressive and flexural strength against the control.
