The Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute Study on the Reduction of Radon Gas in Concrete Using Hycrete Shows a 35% Reduction in Radon Exhalation in Concrete

Monday, May 3, 2021 - 4:00pm

The study, which spanned 22 months, showed that concrete containing Hycrete reduced radon exhalation by 35% compared to the control.\nRadon is a mono-atomic gas that is the second-largest cause of lung cancer in the world.

Key Points: 
  • The study, which spanned 22 months, showed that concrete containing Hycrete reduced radon exhalation by 35% compared to the control.\nRadon is a mono-atomic gas that is the second-largest cause of lung cancer in the world.
  • Radon gas is released by the natural decay of minerals commonly found in soil, granite, and building materials such as concrete.
  • The study found that the primary parameters of radon exhalation in building materials are; permeability, porosity, moisture, pressure gradient, and temperature of the material.
  • Using the Hycrete additive may have a substantial impact on the radon gas exhalation rate of concrete and consequently the radon gas level within a room.
