Ultra Series - Stabilized MorPlast

Stabilized MorPlast is a high quality plaster batched in Lafarge's concrete plant and delivered to sites ready for use. No addition of water or other raw materials is required on site.

 

The product ensures that you receive the finest quality of plaster mortar, allowing excellent on-site workability for up to 36 hours. However, it is also like conventional mortar in that it will begin the setting process once it comes into contact with an absorbing substrate (bricks, concrete block, etc).

 

The product does not require additional mixing provided that it is kept covered with plastic or HDPE (high density polyethylene sheet) while not in use.

 

Stabilized MorPlast can also be batched with Artevia colors. Should Artevia MorPlast be used for plaster, it is advisable to put on a clear coat sealer to prevent moisture ingress.

 

Ultra Series - WaterTight

WaterTight is an integrated full-bodied waterproofing system that includes a pore blocking system to protect the concrete from water penetration. It is ideal for foundations, basements and structures that are in continuous contact with water or abrasive environments.

 

Applications:

The product can be used for many specific construction purposes including:

  • All underground applications.
  • Reservoirs.
  • Sewage and water treatment tanks.
  • Tunnel and subway systems.
  • Swimming pools.
  • Foundations.
  • Basements.
  • Marine structures.
  • Car parks.
  • Commercial roof structures.

Ultra Series - Stabilized Morbricks

Stabilized Morbricks is a series of different grades of high quality premixed mortar batched in Lafarge's concrete plant and delivered to sites ready for use. No addition of water or other raw materials is required on site.

 

The product ensures that you receive the finest quality of mortar, allowing excellent on-site workability for up to 36 hours. Stabilized Morbricks is similar to conventional mortar in that it will begin setting once it comes into contact with an absorbing substrate (bricks, concrete block, etc).

 

The product does not require additional mixing provided that it is kept covered with plastic or HDPE (high density polyethylene sheet) while not in use.

Ultra Series - Ultra Flow Concrete

Lafarge offers customers products to increase the productivity of their crews as well as maintain the quality of concrete.

 

Applications:

Flow Concrete makes the concrete physically easier to place without the addition of water. Use Flow Concrete for:

  • High strength concretes.
  • Vertical walls and columns.
  • Structures with heavy steel reinforcement.
  • Floor slabs and exterior flatwork.
  • Floor slabs for under floor heating systems.

Ultra Series - Fibre

Fibre concrete is Lafarge's polypropylene micro fibre reinforced ready-mixed concrete.

 

Applications:

  • Driveways.
  • Pathways.
  • Sprayed shotcrete concrete.
  • External paving.
  • Precast elements.
  • Cold-floors.
  • Any other concrete application where enhanced properties are required.
  • Floors (industrial, commercial or domestic).

 

Ultra Series - Pervious Series

Pervious Concrete is an ideal solution for surface and storm water management. Typically containing 15-30% void space, it allows water to pass directly through it.

 

Applications:

  • Parking areas.
  • Street and roadway shoulders.
  • Patios, driveways and walkways.
  • Recreational areas.
  • Erosion control.

Ultra Series - Foam Concrete

This is lightweight concrete that is produced by the addition of a

synthetic or protein based air entrainer which is added to the

concrete with the use of a foam generator. The admixture entrains

an inert bubble in the concrete thus reducing the density of the

concrete.

The foam can be added at the plant if traveling time is less than 30

minutes or on site - it is however, preferable to add the foam on site.

If adding on site water and electricity must be available.

 

 

Applications:

  • Filling of trenches in roadways.
  • Filling of disused tanks.
  • Void filling.
  • Backfill below under floor heating.
  • Lightweight topping and slopping layer.
  • Insulation.
  • Arrestor beds, particularly airports.

Ultra Series - Early Strength

Early Strength concrete is specifically designed for concrete that requires specified strength at 24, 48 and 72 hours.

 

Applications:

  •  Apartments.
  •  Villas.
  •  Industrial and commercial buildings.
  •  Road constructions.
  •  Infrastructures.
  •  Fast track concrete projects.

 

Advantages:

  •  Early formwork removal.
  •  Increased production.
  •  Reduced time to complete projects.

Ultra Series - Screed

Screed is a concrete with a maximum size of 12mm and is used for basic elements that have a heavy presence of iron.

 

Applications:

  • Foundations.
  • Walls.
  • Columns.
  • Surfaces.

 

Advantages:

  • Offers good packaging for iron bars.
  • Prevents nesting.
  • Easy to cast.
  • Speed of delivery.

Ultra Series - BC Tranche

BC Tranche is a backfill concrete.

Applications:

  • Groove fillings (trench).


Advantages:

  • Cost-efficient in terms of time, number of workers required and mechanisms.
  • Ensures strong compaction.
  • Easier to be detected (manual and mechanical) without damaging the cable for maintenance.
  • Early strength concrete within 24 hours.

Ultra Series - Shotcrete

Applications:

  • Pouring and improving the stability of soil

 

Advantages:

  • Pouring without formworks.
  • Easy to cast.
  • Speed of delivery.

Ultra Series - Mud Injection

Applications:

  • Inject soil to improve soil properties and fill soil voids and cavities

 

Advantages:

  • Speed of delivery.
  • Cost efficiency.
  • Easy to cast .
