Protection of the Environment

A new-generation, high-strength, ultra-heavy, reactive-powder concrete for radiation protection is proposed. This superconcrete is obtained by making total use of TF-10 silicate-lead glass cullet as fine and coarse fillers introduced in dry form into the concrete mix.
