Hydracrete® concrete

Hydracrete is a modified ready mix 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.

Key benefits

When correctly specified and constructed Hydracrete:

  • Prevents washout and segregation of the concrete mix.
  • Cost saving over conventional products due to increased durability.
  • Almost immediate stiffening after placement.
  • Can be placed in tidal / static / running conditions.
  • High workability.
  • No bleeding.
  • Can be easily placed or pumped to the project.
  • Very cohesive therefore provides strength and protection to the structure.
  • Minimises the impact to the surrounding flora and fauna environments.
    Little or no effect to the water cement ratio.
