The Challenge . . .
Tindall Corporation of Georgia needed to produce precast bulb tees, measuring
1.9 meters deep by 46 meters (74 in. - 150 ft.) long - ready to deliver
within three days at minimum transportation strengths of 8000 psi. Breaks
needed to be guaranteed at 12 hours with minimum release strengths of

strengths were achieved within 8-10 hours with transportation strengths
achieved in one day. Tindall's plant engineer noted that due to the success
of the job, he has full confidence in ADVA.
