Concrete Integrity

Some benefits of Acid Proof Concrete:

Corrosion Resistance

Acid and salt resistant and is very useful in facilities where heavy equipment may damage the concrete surface. It is a chemical resistant concrete that is also bacterial resistant.

Greater Strength

Equal or greater strength properties than regular concrete. This includes compressive, tensile, and flexural strength.

Vector Construction are well-respected concrete contractors who supply and install Acid Resistant Concrete for special projects and can either cast it at the site or prefabricate the components for later delivery.
