Topflow uses innovative mix technology to combine the benefits of two properties; fluidity and stability. Fluidity is essential to provide easy concrete placement and a high quality finish with minimum effort. Stability is necessary to prevent segregation. Collectively this provides a free-flowing, self-compacting concrete.

It is easy to place with fewer pour points, less formwork, reduced manpower, no vibration, excellent surface finish and good workability.

Features and benefits:

  • Fast flowing (maintenance of fluidity is typically two hours).
  • Smoother surfaces.
  • Easier placement.
  • No vibration - eliminating vibration reduces noise pollution and improves on-site working conditions.
  • Reduced carbon emissions - concrete reinforced with macro synthetic fibres is around 60% lower than that of steel reinforced concrete.
  • BSI Kitemark.

Applications:

Topflow concrete can be used in most applications which require a ready-mix concrete from footings and floor slabs to precast applications. It is suitable for laying over underfloor heating, following manufacturer's precautions.
