Cast-Iron Concrete Cylinder Molds

Cast-Iron Concrete Cylinder Molds by Gilson are heavy castings, machined to exact dimensions and serial numbered for long-term repeated use.

Wood presents a lot of benefits as a building material because it is strong, lightweight and environmental friendly. However, only changes in building codes will make wood competitive with steel and concrete.

A new method to produce concrete that traps harmful CO2 emissions and increases the compression strength is implemented by Carbocure, a Canadian Start-up company.

Breaking the bond between the concrete and the steel reinforcement bars is now less noisy and messy
