Water repellent plasticisers
The inclusion of super plasticisers in our concrete mix brings many advantages. Super plasticisers have water repellent properties. The benefit it brings to the finished product is that of increasing the surface of the products ability to repel moisture. This offers great protection to a paving product in winter time where heavy frost can cause surface damage to all types of paving. Super plasticisers also help form stronger cohesive bonds within the overall mix design and helps with colour intensification, improvement of compaction and strength.
Uniformity of the product
Good uniformity of product is important for the following reasons. When paving products are of even depth and width, they are much quicker and easier to lay, thereby reducing installation costs. Distortions or unevenness on the finished surface can look unsightly and contribute to water puddling and create difficulties for patio furniture.
Renovations and upgrading
Replacements or additions are always available should you choose to develop your project further. Note this is not always the case when purchasing imported products.
In addition to asking the questions above, we also recommend you inspect the product before buying.
Remember concrete when properly and appropriately manufactured is a lifetime investment.
