Global demand for cement & concrete additives to approach $16 billion in 2015

(Aggregate Research 2-3-2012) (Ohio) - World demand for cement and concrete additives is projected to increase 8.3 percent annually to $15.8 billion in 2015, a significant improvement over the performance of the 2005-2010 period. During that timeframe, sluggishness or outright declines in many of the larger, more additive-intensive markets -- chiefly the United States, but also Italy, Japan, Spain and the United Kingdom -- partially offset stellar gains in Brazil, China, India and numerous smaller markets.

Structural Safety Enhanced by Smart Spray Paint

(Daily Tech 1-31-2012) The smart paint is cheaper, less time-consuming and more accurate than current methods of monitoring. A researcher in Scotland has created a spray paint that is capable of identifying tiny faults in structures like bridges and turbines long before damage occurs.

Dr. Mohamed Saafi, study leader from the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland, is the creator of the smart paint, which is both strong and environmentally-friendly.
