SIZE OF PROJECT
350 x 25 kg bags of durarep FMC
NATURE OF PROJECT
A tippler ceased to function and had to be repaired. durarep FMC (Fluid Micro Concrete) was chosen as the primary product to allow quicker curing of the repairs to the support columns as well as delivering the required tensile strength of 30 MPa in 3 days. durarep FMC is a cement based non-shrink concrete reinstatement grout, which can be applied by pouring or pumping. The product is supplied in a ready-to-use form requiring only the addition of a small amount of water for easy mixing to produce a fluid consistency. This can then be applied 50 mm or thicker into suitable shuttered repair areas.
durarep FMC exhibits excellent adhesion to concrete substrates without the use of primers. Can be applied in excess of 250 mm depending on the nature of the repair and the reinforcing. The high strength and low permeability provides protection against chloride and carbon dioxide corrosion.
