Tunneling - Shotcrete Additives

E-FLU

E-FLU_100 is an extremely high capacity, polycarboxylic, hyper-plasticizing admixture, specifically designed to maintain workability even in hot climates and accelerate the concrete short-term setting strength.

E-FLU_100 is particularly suitable for the production of high strength ready-mixed concretes, with the addition, if required, of silica fume, fly ash, blast furnace slag and for concrete structures with a very low W/C ratio, resistant to attack by aggressive agents (chlorides, sulphates, carbon dioxides).

The product offers superior workability for more than one hour; prevents segregation and bleeding; increases both homogeneity and cohesion; improves surface finishes, due to the reduction of entrapped air bubbles; improves adherence with the reinforcement steel bars.

Important note: The Bekaert-Maccaferri joint venture: In October 2014, we entered into a global sales and distribution JV with Bekaert. The resulting joint venture, BekaertMaccaferri Underground Solutions will serve underground construction markets on a worldwide basis, except in mainland China and Hong Kong, Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay, where Bekaert and Maccaferri will continue to operate independently.
