High Preformance Concrete
Viola Ready Mix is a leading provider of high-performance concrete solutions for various construction applications. Our diverse range of concrete solutions includes Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC), structural shotcrete, low shrinkage concrete, high-early-strength concrete, UHPC (Ultra-High-Performance Concrete), architectural concrete, decorative concrete, and waterproof concrete.
Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC)
Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is a versatile type of concrete that flows easily without the need for vibration or compaction. It is often used in construction projects where access is limited or traditional consolidation methods are impractical. SCC is also ideal for high-density reinforcement areas, precast elements, and architectural finishes that require a smooth appearance. It is popular in large-scale infrastructure projects such as bridges and tunnels, as it reduces labour costs and construction time. SCC provides a durable and efficient solution for modern construction challenges.
Low Shrinkage Concrete
Low-shrinkage concrete is a type of concrete that has reduced drying shrinkage, which can cause cracking and structural issues. This type of concrete is commonly used in construction projects such as flooring, foundations, and walls, where cracking can lead to damage and safety concerns. Low-shrinkage concrete is made by using low-shrinkage admixtures and controlling the mix design and curing process.
Ultra-High-Performance Concrete (UHPC)
Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC) is a type of concrete that offers exceptional strength, durability, and ductility. It is commonly used in applications that require high-strength concrete, such as infrastructure projects, precast elements, and architectural features. UHPC is achieved by using a dense mix design, incorporating fine aggregates, and using special fibres and admixtures to enhance its properties.
Decorative concrete is a versatile and affordable way to enhance the look of concrete surfaces. Techniques such as stamping, staining, and polishing can create natural-looking finishes, add rich colours and textures, and provide a sleek, glossy look, which can be achieved with our Coloured Concrete options. Decorative concrete is commonly used in a wide range of settings, from outdoor patios and pool decks to indoor flooring and walls. Its versatility, durability, and cost-effectiveness make it an excellent choice for elevating the appearance of any space.
Viola Ready Mix's structural shotcrete is an excellent option for any construction project that requires high-performance concrete. Shotcrete is a highly versatile material that can be applied to a wide range of surfaces, making it an ideal choice for challenging construction projects. Viola Ready Mix's structural shotcrete is perfect for applications where a high strength-to-weight ratio is needed, such as retaining walls, bridge abutments, and tunnels. It can also be used for decorative purposes, providing a smooth, uniform finish to any structure. With our structural shotcrete, you can be confident in the durability and longevity of your construction project.
High early strength concrete is a type of concrete that achieves its design strength earlier than traditional concrete. This type of concrete is commonly used in construction projects that require rapid installation or early load-bearing capabilities, such as roadways, bridges, and high-rise buildings. High early strength concrete is achieved by using a higher proportion of cement, reducing water content, and adding special accelerators to the mix.
Architectural concrete is a type of concrete used in construction projects where aesthetics and design are a primary consideration. It is commonly used in projects such as building facades, monuments, and sculptures, where the appearance of the concrete is essential. Architectural concrete can be achieved by using various techniques such as colouring, stamping, polishing, and exposing aggregate, which can create unique finishes and textures.
Waterproof concrete is a type of concrete designed to prevent water from infiltrating the structure. It is commonly used in construction projects such as basements, retaining walls, and bridges, where water infiltration can cause damage. It can be made by adding waterproofing admixtures to the concrete mix or by using special sealants and coatings on the surface of the cured concrete. Waterproof concrete provides durability, longevity, and protection against water damage.
