Member of EFCA - The ‘European Federation of Concrete
The CAA is a trade association founded in 1963 and representing over 85% of UK admixture manufactures who are committed to offering the highest standards of product quality and support.
Admixtures are specially formulated products that are added in small amounts to concrete, mortar or grout during the mixing process in order to modify the concrete properties in the plastic and / or hardened state.
These varied and versatile products provide enhanced concrete quality, improved durability and deliver cost-benefits to both the producer and the user.
The durability, sustainability and environmental profile of concrete can all be enhanced by admixture use.

CAA has therefore terminated its sale of certified reference cement complying with EN 480.
