Waterproof Concrete

Design and construction of a watertight concrete structure is a system approach. The water impermeability of a construction is determined by fulfilment of the decisive requirements regarding limitation of water permeability through the concrete, the joints, installation parts as well as cracks.

Corrosion Resistant Concrete

Concrete is an ingenious building material, also because in combination with reinforcing steel it exhibits tremendous load-bearing capacity.

Frost and Freeze / Thaw Resistant Concrete

De-icing salt attacks concrete surfaces, one of the most damaging strains for concrete structures, though underestimated for decades also due to the periodically extreme quantities of de-icing salt applied.

Sulfate Resistant Concrete

Particularly in underground construction, concrete structures are exposed alongside loads and wear of decade-long use to influences emerging from the sub grade such as permanent mechanical stresses and aggressive water. Concrete is nevertheless characterized by its outstanding durability.

Fire Resistant Concrete

The danger of fire is present always and everywhere. The imminent danger depends upon actual exposure, and naturally differs if the threatened construction is a pedestrian subway, a roadway tunnel or a subterranean garage in a skyscraper.

Alkali-Silica-Reaction Resistant Concrete

Aggregates constitute a major portion of concrete. Their influence on the fresh and hardened concrete is considerable.

Abrasion Resistant Concrete

Awe-inspiring gorges and valleys are nature’s testimony to the undeniable strength of water. Primarily in technical hydraulic engineering, but also in traffic zones with high loads or hard rolling bodies, concrete surfaces experience considerable and at times extremely abrasive forces.

Chemical Resistant Concrete

Water is the source of all life as well as a scarce commodity. Clean drinking water should therefore be protected against contamination, while waste water must be treated before being released into a discharge system.

High Strength Concrete

High strength and ultra high performance concretes are not just cutting edge technologies for scientific research, but also continue to find new applications in practice.

Shrinkage Controlled Concrete

Prevention of cracks contributes to the durability of concrete structures, because cracks promote the ingress of water and pollutants.

Fiber Reinforced Concrete

With the addition of fibers made of various materials and different geometries the ductility and the tensile strength of concrete can be increased.

Fair-faced Concrete

Modern architecture is unimaginable without fair-faced concrete. For decades priority was given to the unique load-bearing properties and unequaled cost/performance ratio as a structural building material.

Colored Concrete

The manufacture and processing of colored concrete is not only a current trend, but also a sustainable and attractive way to design concrete structures or building components.

Underwater Concrete

When using underwater concrete, the placing and working conditions are very often complex, which is why these concretes often also need an extended working time.

Lightweight Concrete

Lightweight means concrete and mortar with a low density. Concrete incorporating either aggregates with a lower density or artificial voids are created to reduce the weight.

Heavyweight Concrete

The main application for heavyweight concrete is for radiation shielding (medical or nuclear), for offshore, heavyweight concrete is also used for ballasting of pipelines.
