Maxcrete

Description:

Cemix Maxcrete is suitable for any project requiring high early strength (light traffic within 8 hours) and faster set times. It consists of a uniformly blended, properly proportioned mixture of aggregate, sand, Portland cement and admixtures approved for use in concrete to improve workability and performance of the product. It is generally used for foundation walls and footings, sidewalks, curbs, steps, ramps and walkways in high traffic areas, appliance and equipment platforms, pipe and post footings, truck access area, and infrastructure areas.

Typical Applications & Uses:

  • Foundation walls and footings
  • Sidewalks, curbs, steps, ramps and walkways in high traffic areas
  • Appliance and equipment platforms
  • Pipe and post footings
  • Truck access area
  • Playground equipment
  • School areas
  • Infrastructure areas

Advantages:

  • Premixed
  • Computerised batching for uniform strength and consistency
  • Easy to use, just add water
  • High early strength
  • High final strength

Substrate Preparation

Typically compacted hardfill prior to pour. Before pouring, ensure the surfaced is dampened with water.

Application:

Empty contents into a wheelbarrow or mechanical mixer or onto a smooth non-porous surface. Add water gradually, mixing thoroughly until a workable mix is achieved. Under ideal conditions a bag of 25kg would require about 2.5 litres of water and a 40kg bag would require 4.0 litres of water. Use the mixed concrete immediately, do not allow to the mix to stand. Dampen the substrate before the concrete is placed. Upon placing the concrete at site, work sufficiently to remove air voids if any and compact well with a tamping rod working into all areas. Level off the corners and finish flat with a wooden float for coarse finish or a steel trowel for a smooth finish. Use Cemix® Concrete Cure WB to cure concrete, or just keep the surface damp for the first 7 days.

Precaution:

Hazardous - portland and blended cement. This product may contain Crystalline Silica. Cements may cause respiratory, skin and eye irritation. Wet cement can be irritating and corrosive to eyes and skin; and may cause skin sensitization (dermatitis). Repeated inhalation may cause bronchitis, silicosis and lung cancer and increase risk of scleroderma.
