What is Precast Concrete?
Precast concrete is concrete reinforced with conventional reinforcing bars, strands with high tensile strength, or a combination of the two. The strands are pretensioned in the form before the concrete is poured. After the concrete cures, the strands are then cut and the concrete removed from the form. As the strands attempt to regain their original length, they bond to the concrete and create a compressive force that increases load-carrying capacity and helps control cracking. Once the components are removed from their forms, they are transported directly to the building site.
