Gilsonite is used as a new additive to enhance the strength of concrete structures. Gilsonite’s unique features increase the process of production because Gilsonite is essentially water-proof and increases the process of water separating. When the concrete layers are formed due to pressure and temperature rise, Gilsonite makes the components of the concrete better tied to each other and the concrete is even and stronger.
Benefit of Gilsonite using in Construction:
In order to add Gilsonite to concrete, a special grade of high-quality powder of Gilsonite should be added at the concrete slurry in a concrete mixer machines to enhance the quality and integrity of the concrete.
