You can’t avoid the voids! Air is important to the overall strength and performance of cement and mortars. Entrained air is deliberately incorporated into concrete mixtures to improve the durability and resistance to damage from freeze thaw cycles. Having an understanding of the size, volume, and uniformity of the air voids in your mix is crucial in predicting the strength and longevity of your system. Air is also intentionally removed from some systems to increase strength and density. Understanding how to best remove air from your system can be key to the performance.
