Brief

The framework contractors had a requirement to install concrete into water whilst minimising washout of the cementitious fraction. 

Solution

Our Hydracrete is a modified concrete designed for placement into still or moving water with minimal washout. The concrete has a high workability requiring no compactive effort once installed, ideal for use in difficult access or demanding applications. The concrete is traditionally placed by pump or tremmie pipe direct to the point of discharge

Ease of placement with minimal labour ensuring negligible water contamination.
