FlyAsh

Our product matches ASTM and BS standards suitable for concrete and cement industry. Fly ash is an environmentally-friendly solution that meets or exceeds performance specifications. Fly ash can contribute to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) points for green building certification.

Advantages of FlyAsh

  • Reduces CO2 emissions.
  • Produces various set times.
  • Higher strength gains, depending on its use.
  • Can be used as an admixture.
  • Can substitute for Portland cement.
  • Considered a non-shrink material.
  • Produces denser concrete and a smoother surface with sharper detail.
  • Great workability.
  • Reduces crack problems, permeability and bleeding.
  • Reduces heat of hydration.
  • Produces lower water/cement ratio for similar slumps when compared to no fly ash mixes.
  • Cold weather resistance.

The Benefits of Using Fly Ash in Concrete

The ball-bearing effect of fly ash in concrete creates a lubricating action when concrete is in its plastic state. This means:

  • Increased workability Concrete is easier to place with less effort, responding better to vibration to fill forms more completely.
  • Increased ease of pumping Pumping requires less energy; longer pumping distances are possible.
  • Improved finishing Sharp, clear architectural definition is easier to achieve, with less worry about in-place integrity.
  • Reduced bleeding Fewer bleed channels decreases porosity and chemical attack. Bleed streaking is reduced for architectural finishes. Improved paste to aggregate contact results in enhanced bond strengths.
  • Reduced segregation Improved cohesiveness of fly ash concrete reduces segregation that can lead to rock pockets.
  • Reduced slump loss More dependable concrete allows for greater working time, especially in hot weather.
