He was watching a movie where the actor was on a jobsite pouring concrete, but the actor called it cement. My friend, the engineer, couldn't believe that the error got through the blockbuster's editors. Yes, cement is a part of the concrete mixture, but they are two very different things. To top it off, the error was made at the beginning of the movie, so my friend spent the rest of the time stewing about it instead of being immersed in the experience. Concrete is common. It's used all over the world for a myriad of projects. Bridges, to start, but also floors, clari- fiers, roofs, and secondary contain- ments, just to name a few more. For such a commonplace material, there is an amazing amount that you can learn about it and, conversely, an amazing amount that people can get wrong. We're hoping to shed some light on this popular material in this year's Concrete Covered supplement — for new and experienced audiences alike. What's Inside? For concrete, it's water, aggregate, and cement, of course! W hat's inside the supplement, though, is a bit different. As usual, it starts with the roundup, which includes an overview of all things related to concrete. Safety, surface prep, caulks, coatings, sealants, polishing, and associations galore! at high-level summary, which also includes the highlighting of a few new offerings to the market this year, can be found on page 8. e other two articles in this year's concrete supplement include sugges- tions on when and how to use overlays on floors, and maintenance tricks and how to mitigate defects that might occur in cured concrete. ose articles, written by subject matter experts, can be found on pages 24 and 30, respectively. Be sure to check out the sponsored content, too. Get updates on new products and services straight from the source. at information can be found throughout the supplement. Future Coverage For a simple idea, concrete comes with many different options. More water, less water, additives, aggregates, repairs, toppings, and stains. ere really is a whole world of concrete! Just as with any other substrate, working with concrete requires the right knowledge about how to prepare and finish the project per the spec or specifi- cally how the client wants it. We hope that this supplement gives a good overview on a few of the ins and outs of concrete. As always, if you have an idea to share with us for next year's Concrete Covered, please let us know. And be sure to share the knowledge in this year's supplement with others! CP Show Stopper
