Description

Save the date!  On Thursday afternoon, August 9, MCC will be hosting a concrete formed surface finish presentation and demonstration at the Laborer's Training Center in Lino Lakes.  

Now, more than ever, the as cast formed concrete surface is the final surface. Exactly what is a smooth-form finish? What is a rough-form finish? To what extent are bugholes, voids and fins acceptable in each type? This presentation explains and illustrates the answers to these questions and, even more importantly, discusses the steps necessary to obtain a great looking product. The presentation will cover current ACI specifications, mix design and formwork options, as well as field considerations. After the formal presentation, attendees will experience a hands-on formwork prep and vibration demo. At the conclusion of the event, participants can enjoy great BBQ, beverages and networking.
