Expanding our company
for stronger chemistry
MAPEI, an Italy-based global leader in the construction industry since 1937, has joined forces with GRT, a U.S.-based manufacturer of high-
performance admixtures. The result is an enhanced offering of innovative, technology-driven concrete admixtures plus the ongoing ability to
custom-manufacture products to meet the unique requirements of our customers.

In addition to increasing our reach and product line portfolio, we have expanded to new production facilities in Texas and New Jersey. With these
additions to our existing facilities in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and St. Louis, Missouri, we will be able to better serve customers across the entire
United States.

MAPEI/GRT products are routinely used to produce high-performance concrete mixes that are called upon to perform in all weather conditions. We
continually incorporate the latest product technology available in our efforts to fulfill customer needs and are focused on continuing the development
of next-generation chemical admixture products.

Whether you are a current or a future customer, you can expect a high level of service, technical support and commitment from this new partnership.

Guide to Shotcrete

Serving as an excellent primer with numerous pictures and figures detailing the entire shotcrete
process, ACI 506R-16 includes the history, equipment selection, material requirements, formwork,
crew composition and qualification, proper placement techniques, types of finishes, QA/QC
testing, and sustainability for shotcrete design and construction. Completely reformatted, the
guide serves as a companion document to the mandatory language in ACI 506.2, “Specification for
Shotcrete.” Additional industry-leading education and certification programs are available from
the American Concrete Institute and American Shotcrete Association.
