Concrete Specification and Solutions
Van Learn about the specification of concrete and practical solutions to design requests. This webinar will address the specification of concrete in Ireland, concrete onsite testing, finishes and mix types. It will also address recommendations around the use of concrete in hot and cold weather. Finally, you will learn about the concrete services offered by Roadstone.

High Early Strength Concrete

Contact us for sales or technical advice on this product

Description

Roadstone has developed a range of high early strength concrete mixes through our research and development laboratory in Belgard, Dublin. Mixes specifically formulated through the selection of binders and admixtures that enhance early strength development while also retaining workability retention allow for fast track construction where early strength is essential.

Suitable for many different applications high early strength concrete mixes are often used for critical road repairs where road closures are kept to minimum to reduce traffic disruption. High early strength concrete mixes can be placed, pumped and finished just like conventional concrete.

Key Features & Benefits
  • High early strength

FAQS
At what timescale can a target compressive strength be achieved?

Mixes are typically designed to achieve a compressive strength to meet the customer’s requirements. A requirement for a target compressive strength at 24 or 48 hours or 7 days is common. Requirements for strength to be achieved faster than 24 hours can be challenging as can achieving higher target compressive strengths at an earlier age. Further guidance should be sought from the Roadstone concrete technical department for more onerous requirements.
