Intertape Polymer Group Inc. is one of the largest packaging industry companies in the world. When they expanded their manufacturing and distribution center in Danville, Virginia, the project design called for a 120,000-square-foot, 6-inch concrete slab, with extended joint spacing that would match the column line. PREVent-C Shrinkage Reducing/Compensating admixture was mixed into the concrete along with steel fiber, resulting in a control joint flat slab flow with zero cracking.
