    Coolcrete : Ready-Mix Concrete

    Temperature –  controlled Concrete.image

    Coolcrete has placement temperatures much below ambient temperatures and and can be designed as low as 12 degree Celsius or as per client requirement.

    Temperature controlled concrete is necessary to prevent the rise of internal temperature of the concrete beyond specified limits for mass concrete or large pours,  such as thick slabs,  beams and columns.

    Benefits :

    1. Reducing bleeding and drying shrinkage. –  Water content is reduced in proportion and therefore bleeding segregation and drying shrinkage are controlled.
    2. High durability – Strength after 7 days will be higher as compared to normal concrete.  It has additional cementitious and low permeability quality.

    Applications:
    1. Coolcrete is best for concrete structure with large dimensions,  such as dams,  large column,  mat foundation and diaphragm wall.

    2. It is good for long term performance and durability.
