The use of a mineral-blended polymeric microsphere powder in concrete mixtures can provide protection from freezing-and-thawing (F-T) damage as well as lower the carbon footprint of concrete. The article presents results of compressive strength and cyclic F-T testing for microsphere and air-entrained concretes containing two levels of fly ash as a supplementary cementitious material.
