Fiber reinforced shotcrete for wet process applications - Reduced shrinkage
BATIMIX Concrete 583 is a pre-blended shotcrete mixture used in wet process applications where reduced shrinkage is sought. It contains Type I Portland cement, fibers, selected additives, and carefully-graded fine and coarse aggregates. It exhibits enhanced shotcrete characteristics and physical properties.
BATIMIX Concrete 583 is thoroughly mixed with water and introduced into the shotcrete equipment. The wet material, which exhibits improved cohesion characteristics, is pumped through the hose and compressed air added at the nozzle. It impacts the surface at high velocity resulting in a well-compacted product that is easy to place and consolidate.
BATIMIX Concrete 583 products are used to strengthen and repair existing structures. They are also used to build complex architectural shapes for skateboard parks, swimming pools, and earth retaining structures. The surfaces can have horizontal, vertical, or overhead orientations. They are also used to line and rehabilitate the cementitious substrates of sewers, tunnels, reservoirs, and water main.
BATIMIX Concrete 583 has the following main characteristics:
