Rocksil is an accelerating and hardening admixture for shotcreting works. It is based on a soldium silicate-in-water solution.
Rocksil is easy to use and proven within tunnelling applications. It is suitable for use in both wet and dry mix shotcrete and provides faster setting times to shotcrete for use in tunnelling, mining, dams, shaft sinking, slope protection and in general construction applications when there is a need to accelerate the set times of sprayed concrete.
Apral is an accelerating admixture for shotcreting works without affecting the final mechanical strength. It is an alkali-free product based upon an aluminium oxide-in-water solution.
It is suitable for use in both wet and dry mix shotcrete and provides faster setting times to shotcrete for use in tunnelling, mining, dams, shaft sinking, slope protection and in general construction applications when there is a need to accelerate the set times of sprayed concrete. It is also suitable for cold weather conditions.
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.
