Located adjacent to the Intercoastal Waterway, the concrete foundation slab of International Paper’s paper mill need to be waterproof and resistant to saltwater to prevent any possible corrosion of the slab’s steel reinforcement elements. The newest upgrade for the paper mill was a new feed conveyor system used in the production of linerboard, a type of heavy paper stock.
PENETRON ADMIX SB (in pre-measured soluble bags that dissolve instantly during mixing) was added to the concrete during the batching phase. The admixture also features a PENETRON innovation, a green tracer in the bleed water that confirms PENETRON is “in the mix.”
