​eTools for using innovative concrete technologies

 

As part of BASF's commitment to sustainable construction, we have developed a series of electronic tools for architects, engineers, specifiers, contractors and concrete producers for utilizing innovative concrete technologies. These interactive custom tools enable individual project analysis and concrete technology solutions for both economic and environmental challenges in building sustainable concrete structures.

If you would like to request use of these eTools or a consultation with a BASF representative, please contact your local sales representative or our Technical Service representatives. For questions or technical support on our eTools, please call 1-800-628-9990 or email admixtures@basf.com. Please note: All BASF eTools are reserved for members of the construction community doing business with BASF.

 

BASF Integrated Durability-Sustainability Wizard

The award-winning BASF Integrated-Durability Sustainability (BIDS) Wizard is a user-friendly program that takes complex requirements and provides solutions for sustainable construction. It facilitates the selection of concrete admixture products and technologies to address various durability issues, as well as those that may potentially contribute to earning LEED credits for a structure.

Consistent Concrete Value Tool

Consistent concrete requires minimal to no on-site adjustment of the concrete mixture or to the casting, consolidating and finishing processes on a batch-to-batch or day-to-day basis.The Consistent Concrete Value Tool (CCVT) was developed to model the dollar savings potential a concrete producer can achieve with more consistent concrete.

Surface Evaporation Wizard

The Surface Evaporation Wizard helps to ensure quality concrete by providing guidance to minimize the potential for plastic shrinkage cracking due to surface evaporation of bleed water. This eTool uses prevailing ambient conditions on placement day, and specific information on the concrete mixture, to estimate the evaporation of bleed water from the surface of a concrete slab.
