American Concrete Pipe Association
The American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) is the spokesperson for the concrete pipe industry in all matters affecting the industry’s welfare.
Throughout the 20th century, the concrete pipe industry has experienced tremendous growth. As more and more people moved from farms to cities, it created increased demand for concrete sewer and drainage products. The introduction of the automobile and subsequent highway development extended the uses of concrete pipe storm drains and culverts. There are currently more than 400 plants operated by ACPA members in the United States and Canada. More than 40 countries are represented in the membership of the ACPA.
ACPA members contribute to the improvement of our environment by producing quality concrete pipe, engineered to provide a lasting and economical solution to drainage and pollution problems.
Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) has been recognized as one of the most significant advances in the industry over the past 20 years. CONCREFLOW, the Argos brand SCC, is a highly flowable mix that our QA team spent years developing and refining. This ultra-fluid concrete can spread into place under its own weight and can achieve significant levels of consolidation without internal or external vibration or exhibiting defects due to segregation and bleeding. These attributes help reduce labor and time requirements, leading to significant cost savings and structural quality by allowing architects to design complex and innovative structures that otherwise would have been impossible to bring to life.
Argos is one of the largest cement and ready-mix producers in the southeast United States.
ChromX | An MMFX Innovation
As the nation’s leading producer of rebar, Commercial Metals Company offers a variety of concrete reinforcement products at a range of corrosion resistance levels. ChromX rebar provides a high-strength, corrosion-resistant concrete reinforcing line of long steel products in various grades and levels of corrosion resistance. Martensitic Microcomposite Formable Steel (MMFX) is the innovation behind all ChromX products. It is this proprietary steel microstructure, along with a patented chemical composition, that creates corrosion-resistant and high-strength properties within the bar, rather than a coating.
Designers can select the appropriate level of corrosion resistance and strength needed (available in grades 100 and 120) specifically targeted to the service life for the project. High strength and corrosion-resistant properties within the steel result in a reduction in construction costs, shortened build times, reduced congestion issues and improved safety. In addition, building codes and design guides through ACI, ICC and AASHTO, among others, are available in support of high-strength designs using ChromX products.
As the nation’s leading producer of rebar, Commercial Metals Company offers a variety of concrete-reinforcement products at a range of corrosion-resistance levels. This includes GalvaBar, our continuously galvanized rebar (CGR) with a pure zinc alloy coating. CGR provides the proven protection of zinc in its coating that is applied prior to fabrication and is able to be fully fabricated without specialty equipment or unique processes required. GalvaBar complies with ASTM A1094 requirements for continuous hot-dip galvanized steel bars and concrete reinforcement. It is inventoried and available from our plant in Catoosa, Okla., and can be distributed throughout CMC’s supply chain and logistics network or through your current rebar supply chain.

Cortec Corporation is the global leader in innovative, environmentally responsible VpCI and MCI corrosion control technologies for construction and many other industries. Cortec’s MCI (Migrating Corrosion Inhibitor) Technology protects reinforcing metal in concrete from corrosion. Often, corroding rebar in deteriorating concrete is the cause of costly repairs, financial losses, injuries and even deaths, but Cortec has the corrosion solution. MCI greatly extends the service life of new and existing structures by proactively delaying the onset of corrosion and keeping rates low after initiation. MCI products maintain structural integrity, rehabilitate vulnerable structures, and alleviate environmental concerns. They are based on amine technology (amine alcohols and amine carboxylates) and applied in many forms including as a concrete admixture or a topical treatment.

Splice Sleeve North America
NMB Splice Sleeve is the pioneer of the mechanical coupler for splicing reinforcing bars that uses a cylindrical-shaped sleeve filled with a portland cement based non-shrink high early strength grout. Reinforcing bars to be spliced are inserted into the sleeve to meet approximately at the center of the sleeve. The interior of the sleeve is then filled with SS Mortar grout. No bar end preparation such as threading is necessary; just slide the bar into the sleeve and grout it to complete the connection. This process, called “Emulation,” makes the reinforcing bars continuous through the connection. NMB Splice Sleeve is ideal for precast and cast-in-place concrete construction. It is specifically designed to facilitate constructions at the jobsite and greatly reduce construction time.
