On Natural Coloration of Concrete in Power Plant Construction
The concrete coloration method for the power plant construction is studied to change the recent exterior decoration method for industrial buildings, for its considerable charge on construction and maintenance. The special low-carbon additive, rice husk ash, is provided as the coloring matter to produce a grey with different saturations. After that, various professional tests on uniformity, impermeability and frost resistance are provided to illustrate the performance of the colored concrete. As the result, the proposed concrete coloration scheme has improved the industrial architectural appearance without sacrifice the strength of structure. More importantly, it is meaningful and significant to promote the environment landscape with green environmental protection destination by using the low-carbon materials in our industrial construction.
