Lafarge provides its customers with specially designed innovative concretes for the construction of infrastructure facilities, which are designed according to specific market requirements, and with the application of modern technologies.
It is sold at a range of low-carbon levels from 30% to 50% less carbon emissions compared to standard concrete, whose use reduces the total carbon emissions. ECOPact concretes are suitable for all reinforced concrete elements. They show comparable or better properties compared to standard concretes, from which they do not differ when it comes to the process of production, delivery, and installation.
This type of concrete is recommended for concreting at low outdoor temperatures when it is desired to accelerate the increase in strength (e.g. production of prefabricated concrete elements and prestressed structures).
Advantages: increased productivity of works, durability and resistance of concrete.
Ultra Series ™ Chemical resistance
Concrete resistant to chemicals from the soil, groundwater and industrial plants is an ideal solution for farm floors and sewage systems.
Advantages: chemical resistance and durability in aggressive environments.
Ultra Series ™ Reduced shrinkage
A special concrete line that is characterized by a significant reduction in shrinkage compared to conventional concretes for this application – shrinkage of concrete is reduced by up to 40%. It is recommended for horizontal surfaces where no expansion joints are planned, such as industrial floors and plateaus.
Advantages: easy installation and open time for surface finishing.
Ultra Series ™ Low heat hydration
Is a solution for solid concrete, such as foundations for wind turbines, large slabs, concrete tanks, etc.
Advantages: easy installation / no vibration, low heat of hydration, reduced risk of cracking, high ultimate strength.
Ultra Series ™ Waterproof
Solution for concretes that are exposed to the danger of water penetration, specially adapted for foundations, parking lots in garages, roof panels, etc.
Advantages: reinforcement corrosion prevention, frost resistance, durability.
Ultra Series ™ Underwater
concrete adapted for underwater installation or in humid environments; intended for concreting piles, shores, and water fortifications.
Advantages: durability of the structure (uniform water-cement factor), reduction of installation costs due to elimination of drainage costs.
Ultra Series ™ Wear resistance
The solution is intended for the needs of medium, i.e., heavy traffic load. Wear-resistant concrete class XM2 – H2.
Advantages: durability in conditions of combined exposure to frost and salt.
Ultra Series ™ Shotcrete
Shotcrete is intended for underground construction works (tunnels, wells), slope stabilization, sealing works, etc.
Advantages: Quick and easy application (without payment), good adhesion to the substrate, ductility, etc.
Innovative permeable concrete with advanced drainage technology. It is a sustainable solution that combines the properties of concrete and modern drainage technology.
Advantages: high permeability, extremely fast absorption of atmospheric water from streets, parking lots, driveways and promenades, thus reducing the risk of floods.
Self-levelling concrete, which is characterized by the ability to install without vibration; provides excellent quality concrete with an exceptional finish.
Advantages: installation of concrete without difficulties, provides excellent quality with greater flexibility on construction sites in all positions and for all applications (piles, foundations, finishes, horizontal and vertical surfaces).
A special type of decorative concrete, with a stone aggregate exposed on the surface. It is a robust and durable concrete with a surface that reduces slipping, and it is intended for concreting external surfaces which gives it a uniquely aesthetic atmosphere.
Advantages: low maintenance costs (no weeds and grass in the joints, unlike the usual paving elements), low degree of porosity, prevents the possibility of denivelation (as opposed to the usual paving elements).
