Ultibed Flowing Concrete

Rapid set and rapid strength flowing concrete for highways use

Overview

Ultibed Flowing Concrete is a high performance rapid set and rapid strength flowing concrete for highway use.

Ultibed Flowing Concrete is perfect for any application that requires high early strength gain and a quick return to service time. It’s rapid set and early strength development help reduce construction and road closure times, making it ideal for both planned and emergency repairs.

Typical applications for Ultibed Flowing Concrete include the backfill of carriageway ironwork, repairs to concrete structures, bridge deck repairs, installation of posts and barrier erection. With its fast setting time, Ultibed Flowing Concrete can be opened to traffic just 90 minutes after being mixed and placed.

Ultibed Concretes Fully comply with Highways England HD 27/15.

Ultibed Flowing Concrete is a rapid strength high performance flowing concrete for highway use.
