The Challenge . . .

The Central Artery Tunnel Project is North America's largest construction project. In the Fort Point Channel section of this massive project, tunnel sections are constructed in a confined casting platform under tight specifications. Constructing these segments requires a need to control the heat of hydration, limit mix temperature and curtail thermal shrinkage cracking.

The Solution . . .

ADVA Superplasticizer helps manage these issues and provides high strength, workability and finishability in a wide range of applications throughout the project.
