 Concrete mix designs are often given by the following
ratio:
1:2:2
2-Coarse Aggregate – crushed rock
2- Fine Aggregate – sand
1- Cement
 In this case, the ratio implies 1 part (by weight) of
cement to 2

what is salt water and concrete

Post by dean on Mon Aug 05, 2013 9:09 am

Many people think our water is bad for concrete too salty, our tap water is about 2,800ppm of dissolved solids.    But remember dissolved solids is not the same as salt it does not have to be pure salt in our water.   But even this is way below the acceptable level of using ocean water.  Remember people grew up in this town for hundred plus years with this water to drink with, if you drink ocean water you die in a day or so.  

To kill the rumor about salt water and vs. our water…  and again our water is not pure sodium chloride for dissolved solids.   BTW we also do not have freeze  thaw cycles which are the most damaging in the long run for starting the most destructive part of cracks.   We do have salt air which it does not matter which type of water you use.   And we do not have a lot of dew point days which is also very important.    



Here is what I found.    

salt water should not be used for prestressed concrete. salt water can be used for ordinary concrete with a expected lost of 10 to 20 percent strength. sodium chloride can cause corrosion to the reinforced steel. the permissible sodium chloride is 20,000ppm while ordinary salt water contains 27,000ppm. salt can corrode steel as well as lost of strength due to freezing and thawing. it can cause the concrete to spall. my advise is to use precast concrete and impregnate it with water resistant coating and then lower it into place. care should be taken for steel connections and covered and protected with concrete with water resistant coating. after the precast concrete is lowered into place and steel connections made, sprayed the entire structure with water resistant coating again and spray again annually.
BTW I have read that a company has invented a new microbe,like a bacteria that is put in the concrete that when exposed to air will grow and seal any micro cracks from the air getting to the steel.  It is in testing right now.  It is entombed and only comes to life when air hits.

Bath University uses bacteria for self-healing concrete

You’d think that concrete would last forever. After all, it’s pourable stone, so it should hang around as long as the Rock of Gibraltar. But, under the right (or wrong) conditions, concrete decays with alarming speed. To combat this, researchers at the University of Bath in the UK are working on a self-healing concrete that uses bacteria to seal the cracks that lead to decay. In this way, they hope to cut down on maintenance costs and increase the life of concrete structures.

You might find the product is supplied by Kemiko.

They are an international company who do concrete floors and other surfaces, with the coloring and sealing etc.

They have a team here in La Paz who we have used for a number of projects, and they can sell all of the products.

Their American website shows the products that the company sells in English if you happen to know the technical name.

http://www.kemiko.com/

The Mexican website has the contact information for their distributors across Mexico and I have pasted below the La Paz contacts.
