Readymix: Speciality Brands

Flowcrete

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

Features and Benefits

  • This concrete allows for faster discharge.
  • It can be placed easily.
  • It is virtually self-compacting and self-levelling.
  • It allows for minimal bleeding.
  • It allows for less site equipment than normal.
  • It flows through narrow spaces and irregular shapes.
  • It offers high quality off-shutter finishes.
  • It allows for increased free-fall limits and deeper lifts without segregation.
  • It has improved level tolerances of floors and slabs.
  • It allows for high quality finishes to be easily achieved.
  • It has excellent workability without compromising cohesion.
  • It allows for 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

  • This concrete achieves very high early-strength development.
  • It is very cohesive.
  • It does not require any specialised equipment to place.

Applications

Poolmix is ideal for constructing:

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

Trenchcrete

A highly workable blend of fine aggregate, water, cement and an air entraining agent, Trenchcrete is 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 necessary.

Features and Benefits

  • This concrete consolidates under its own weight and is self-levelling, needing no internal vibration or surface compaction.
  • It easily flows into voids beneath pipes and around obstructions.
  • It can be placed in adverse weather conditions.
  • It hardens with very little settlement and does not require overfilling.
  • It can be pumped into inaccessible or restricted areas due to its high flowability.

Hydrafil

Hydrafil is a workable, highly stable backfill material mainly used for regular trenches and larger voids where early trafficking is essential.

Features and Benefits

  • This concrete allows for the excavation to be efficiently reinstated with stable material.
  • It allows for traffic on the trenches and excavations after just 4 hours of plaacing.
  • It sets and hardens in all weather conditions.
