Aggregate Industries has developed a range of high early strength concretes which it says are specifically designed for structurual, void-fill, pavement and track bed applications.
The Strike+ range, available in four different strength settings, is expected to offer high strength in various levels of consistency for a number of placement methods including pump, skip and direct.
David Porter, area manager concrete (East Midlands) at Aggregate Industries, says the Strike+ range’s rapid setting times enables users to increase their productivity when building carriageway replacements, airport hard standings, warehouses, precast structures.
“It also provides the enhanced strength and long-wearing properties required on many infrastructure projects. We’d urge all our customers, new and existing, to make the most of this new innovative range of concrete solutions,” Porter adds.
The company says the concretes have been formulated with rapid setting times ranging from 15 minutes to four hours.
Additionally, the range includes other properties such as high resistance to chlorides, low surface absorption, low shrinkage and high freeze thaw resistance.
Strike+ products are manufactured and delivered using volumetric concrete mixers, with water only added to the mix at the point of use. The ranges consist of specially blended binders, PC52.5N CEM1 (BSEN 197) and carefully selected concrete aggregates (BSEN 1260).
