Prestressed Concrete Terms
Prestressed concrete is a type of concrete that has undergone a process to increase its natural strength. Concrete is threaded with tensioned rods, which inhibit the sagging of the concrete. Prestressed concrete is used as the main material in high rise building flooring, containment vessels of nuclear reactors, long bridges and parking structures. Here are a few terms commonly associated with presressed concrete.

Concrete: A construction material containing crushed stone, sand or gravel, cement, water and limestone. Concrete is often reinforced with steel rods or steel, glass or plastic fibers.

Aggregate: A composite of sand, gravel, or crushed stone used as a base for concrete. Aggregates can also be recycled materials from demolition. Crushed glass, quartzite, or river stones are also used for decorative landscaping purposes.

Bonded Post Tensioned Concrete: Concrete that has been processed through application of compression after having been poured and cured. The concrete is then cast around a curved duct, after which steel tendons or rods are woven through the ducts. The tendons are stretched with hydraulic jacks, and once hardened, the concrete is able to withstand stress and contraction.

Cement: A component in concrete, cement is a substance that can harden independently and bind materials together.

Tensile Strength: A material's ability to withstand the stress from being stretched.

Compressive Strength: A material's ability to withstand the stress of being compressed or crushed.

Rebar: A reinforcing bar, also known as reinforcing steel, that is used as a tension device in reinforced concrete structures.

Tendon: Any tension withstanding material that holds a structure together.

Construction companies often need to purchase prestressed concrete forms from distributors. These forms come in a variety of shapes that can be used for building steps, flooring, bridges, buildings, and other structures. Prestressed concrete and cement forms are useful because they use steel cables and pipes to make them stronger. This adds support to the design of structures that might be unstable otherwise. When you contact companies, ask them how long they have been in business. It is important that your precast forms are strong and durable. Companies with several years of experience might be able to offer you better supplies than those that are just starting. You should also ask if they have any references or affiliations with other companies or professional organizations. This can help you determine that the company is legitimate and has served its other clients well. Dealers often use grinders, cement, concrete, and steel to make prestressed concrete. Many of them also make certain types of forms like slabs and piles that you can use for construction projects. Make sure that the firm you choose can make the products you need for your floors, bridges, stairs, walls, buildings, and other structures that need reinforced designs. Ask where the companies are located. You will probably find that some of those you contact operate at the international, national, statewide, or local levels. Ask them if they provide delivery and other customer services. If they provide written quotes, then you can use them to compare the costs of ordering prestressed concrete forms for your construction project from different distributors. Finding a manufacturer that makes sturdy products for your flooring and construction is important. Knowing how to find the dealer that's right for you will make it easier to find the best one.
