Flowcrete

A specially modified, highly workable, cohesive Readymix concrete designed for specific placement and performance needs. The raw materials and registered admixtures in this concrete enhance fluidity without the segregation normally found in highly fluid mixes. This allows more flexibility in both design and construction.

Features and Benefits

  • Faster discharge
  • Easily placed
  • Virtually self-compacting and self-levelling
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Less site equipment needed
  • Flows through narrow spaces and irregular shapes
  • High quality off-shutter finishes
  • Increased free-fall limits and deeper lifts without segregation
  • Improved level tolerances of floors and slabs
  • High quality finishes can be easily achieved
  • Excellent workability
  • Workability is achieved without compromising cohesion
  • Greater productivity with flexible and efficient use of labour

Applications

The enhanced fluidity without segregation makes Flowcrete ideal for:

  • Complex shapes
  • Congested areas in reinforced elements
  • Intricate architectural applications

Poolmix

A semi-dry concrete specifically designed for hand-packing pools and ideal for complex shaping such as water features and drainage channels.

Features and Benefits

  • Vary high early-strength development
  • Very cohesive

No specialised equipment

Applications

Poolmix is ideal for constructing:

  • Swimming pools
  • Water features
  • Koi ponds
  • Drainage channels

Trenchcrete

This is a highly workable blend of fine aggregate, water, cement and an air entraining agent. It’s used as an efficient and cost-effective trench and void filling material. It can be used as an economical alternative to placing and compacting soil or granular material.

Trenchcrete is virtually self-compacting and can be used primarily for applications requiring a highly fluid mixture for thin, irregular sections and pipe filling where early strength is not required.

Features and Benefits

  • Consolidates under its own weight and is self-levelling, needing no internal vibration or surface compaction
  • Easily flows into voids beneath pipes and around obstructions
  • May be placed in all weather conditions
  • Hardens with very little settlement and does not require overfilling
  • Can be pumped into inaccessible or restricted areas due to high flowability

Hydrafil

Hydrafil is a workable blend of aggregate, sand, cement and water. It is a highly stable backfill material mainly used for regular trenches and larger voids where early trafficking is essential.

Features and Benefits

  • It ensures the excavation is efficiently reinstated with stable material                                                              
  • Trenches and excavations will be subject to traffic after 4 hours                                                                                        
  • It sets and hardens in all weather conditions
