Precast concrete is a form of concrete that is prepared, cast and cured off-site, usually in a controlled factory environment, using reusable moulds. Precast concrete elements can be joined with other factors to form a complete structure. The precast industry is driven by continually increasing productivity with high-quality concrete components that satisfy industrial and economic requirements.
We are offering our FC-HIPROCAST Range of products to a wide range of markets of Precast Industries, including components for buildings, civil engineering, drains, art stone, agriculture, roads and highways, railways and telecommunications. It is helpful in casting girders, prestressed floor support slabs, panels, segments, pipes, blocks, vaults, cross-beams, façade units, paving and copings. The manufacture of precast concrete relies on quality constituent materials and the production process.
FC-HIPROCAST’s Range of products now allows for the optimisation of
- Rapid rotation of moulds
- Improved surface finish
- Early prestressing at low temperatures
- Reduced energy consumption for heating or steam curing
- Reduced cement volume and use of
- replacement materials
- Accelerated strength development
PCE molecules of the FC-HIPROCAST Range are rapidly adsorbed on the surface of the cement grains and dispersed through electrostatic and steric repulsion. As a result of this high dispersion, high flow/self-compacting character developed in concrete which Minimises the Vibration process, Reduces Energy Consumption and labour and enhances the durability of the concrete.
Unlike conventional PCE molecules covering the cement grain, the FC-HIPROCAST molecules’ progressive adsorption leaves sufficient space on the cement surface to allow rapid hydration. As a result of this effect, the setting time / de-moulding time of concrete becomes faster, which Increases the Productivity process in the precast industries.
Due to the faster hydration process, the development of higher strengths at the very early age of concrete becomes faster. This advantage Minimises the heat curing process in the precast industries.
The FC-HIPROCAST 50E is suitable for all significant precast elements & The FC-HIPROCAST 20E is ideal for all small precast elements.
