Its specific characteristics include ageing capability and the ability to provide a tailored surface appearance according to customer needs.
Mortar and Plaster: Ready-to-use Wet Plaster
Ready-to-use Wet Plaster was created using Lafarge technology to replace the so-called black plaster, which is hand-blended and therefore lacks consistent quality.
This cement has strong adhesive properties and offers sound water resistance and heat insulation due to the absence of lime or similar materials in its formula. It can be painted over relatively quickly compared to plaster since it has only a 12 -hour settling period, and so it enables the work to be completed quickly. All these factors ensure that Ready-to-use Wet Plaster is much more economical than manually prepared plaster.
From C8/10 to C40/50 type ready-mixed concrete products are produced according to the international and local Concrete Standard.
Standard concrete and pump mixes include all concrete for normal applications in strengths from 10MPa to 50MPa and stone sizes from 6.7mm to 37.5mm with a guaranteed strength at 28 days.
The Standard Concrete Range consists of:
- Standard Concrete with a 75mm Slump
- Standard Pump mixes with a 90mm Slump
