Concrete with great resistance to chloride penetration

Experience from the Netherlands

A descriptive strategy for concrete durability is utilized in the current version of concrete standard EN 206, whereby proof of durability is furnished through compliance with the limit values of the provisions regulating concrete properties and concrete composition. However, these do not sufficiently take the action of each type of cement or of the concrete additive into consideration. Furthers developments of the future EN 206 European concrete standard are envisaged with, amongst other things, the application of performance strategies for concrete, in which these as well as the development of actions and resistances over time are better taken into account. With these matters, the resistance of concrete against chloride penetration is one of the most important properties of concrete with great relevance for durability.
