Hope launches HOPEFlow concrete
First publishedin Aggregates Business Europe
British independent concrete supplier Hope Construction Materials has launched a new range of ready-mixed concretes.
HOPEFlow is a suite of high-performance, self-compacting concretes and flowing screeds that can be placed in a fraction of the time of conventional concrete, says the company. The range, which is available nationwide, is said to be ideal for any situation where conventional concrete could be used, from foundations and floors to walls and columns.
“It flows quickly and easily around complex formwork and busy rebar, without the need for vibration, meaning there is no hand-arm vibration felt by users and less noise throughout the installation process,” says Hope Construction Materials.
Hope Construction Materials’ technical director Mike Bull said: “A combination of concrete additive technology and a formulated blend of aggregate help to give HOPEFlow its remarkable properties.
“After an intensive development programme and live trials with construction partners, we’re delighted to introduce HOPEFlow after the launch of the company in January. The idea of self-compacting concrete is not that new, but the innovation is the ability to supply it almost anywhere in the country.”
