NON-SHRINK CONCRETE C70
Compressive strength class C55/67
A pumping and hand-laying grade, weather resistant and easy flowing fine-grained dry concrete.
FIELD OF APPLICATION
Installation of concrete elements and joining of patching bays.
Anchorage installation and soldering.
Filler concrete applications in narrow spaces.
For indoor and outdoor use.
Minimum compression resistance of hardened non-shrink concrete is 70 MPa provided 16% water is added to dry mix.
Flow properties of non-shrink concrete is 110 mm pursuant to EVS-EN 13813:2005 provided 20% water is added to dry mix.
Rapid strength development and stable volume.
Silica sand, granite sand, cements, binders, plasticisers.
Clean dust and loose particles from the substrate.
To achieve better adhesion moisten the substrate with clean water prior to casting.
When building a mould, it has to be precise and tight to prevent the mix flowing out of the mould.
When soldering anchors and other steel structures ensure that the steel surface treatment has become passive. Unpassivated zinc reacts with the fresh concrete compound, resulting in the formation of hydrogen, which reduces adhesion between steel and concrete.
When hand-laying pour the required quantity of the dry mix in the mixing bowl or mixer.
Add water 16–20% of the mix weight (4–5 litres per 25 kg bag).
Stir until the mixture is completely wet.
The optimum temperature of the concrete mass is +10 to +20 0C. Lower temperatures slower the hardening process of concrete. The cast must not be allowed to freeze during the first 48 hours.
To achieve the best adhesion and flowing properties casting has to be carried out within 5-10 minutes after adding water. The once mixed grout remains suitable for casting for 1 hour.
Incision and moving helps to compact the cast.
It is recommended to protect the casted surfaces against too quick drying. Moisturising helps to ensure uniform hardening of the casted concrete and volume stability.
