Description

High performance, heat resistant ready-mix concrete.

Features and benefits:

  • Designed as a heat performance alternative to special heat resistant materials, such as those utilizing high calcium aluminate cement and slag aggregate.
  • Provides a cost-effective solution where heat resistance is required.
  • Cohesive consistency, with a dense micro-structure.
  • High early and improved ultimate strength, low permeability and increased durability to a variety of conditions, including temperature variations.
  • Can be lightly trafficked after 24 hours.
  • Allows very little bleed water to migrate to the surface.
  • Helps to reduce spalling by forming pressure relieving pathways for the steam vapour.
  • Easy to pump.
  • Low water/ cement ratio.
  • One pass finishing.
  • Increased cohesion.
  • Less prone to segregation.
  • Manufactured in accordance with BS 8500-2.
