PrīmX is a patented, steel fiber reinforced, shrinkage compensating composite concrete. Joint maintenance and curling are eliminated and the floor is virtually […]
PrimX jointless concrete slabs on grade exceed traditional concrete’s performance on multiple levels.
There are multiple references to the recommended minimum slab thickness offered by the Tilt-Up Concrete Association (TCA) in publications and resources.
