20kg & 25kg

Application:

Dig a hole and place your post in it. Keep the post off the ground to prevent rot and also apply Cemix® Bituproof Plus on the part of the post that will be sub ground. Completely wet the hole and compensate for any ground drainage that might soak up the water required for Cemix® Super Strength Fastcrete. In sandy soils, line the hole with plastic. Pour 2.5 - 3.5 litres of water per bag of Cemix® Super Strength Fastcrete. Position the post in the centre of the hole. Evenly and slowly pour the dry contents of the Cemix® Super Strength Fastcrete around the post. Ensure the concrete gets wet progressively as you pour. Do not empty the bag quickly as this will lead to dry patches and you will have to rod to allow for water penetration. If any dry product is visible on the surface, sprinkle water over to dampen.

Due to the fast setting time of Cemix® Super Strength Fastcrete, do not mix in a concrete mixer or wheelbarrow.

After a minimum of 15 minutes the hole can be topped up with earth and after one hour the post can withstand wire straining or similar pressure. It is recommended that a third of the post should be below the ground. The diameter of the hole in the ground needs to be a minimum of twice the diameter of the post. For structural applications such as footings, ensure the product is left to cure for 7 days.
