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.

Pathcrete

Description

Pathcrete is a Roadstone Product, specifically designed to meet freeze thaw exposure class requirements given in Table NA.6 of I.S. EN 206:2013 for horizontal structures and described in Table 1 of I.S. EN 206:2013:

  • XF3 – High water saturation, without de-icing agent such as horizontal concrete surfaces exposed to rain and freezing.
  • XF4 – High water saturation, with de-icing agent or sea water such as concrete surfaces exposed to direct spray containing de-icing agents and freezing
Key Features & Benefits
  • Made from local materials manufactured to the highest standards
  • Mix design and technical advice available
  • Mixes available in 10mm and 20mm nominal aggregate sizes
