What is InfraCrete®?

The additive for efficient, resource-friendly construction measures
Regular construction methods require the excavation, transport and disposal of the existing soil material and the subsequent filling of the excavation pit with additionally supplied filler materials. With InfraCrete®, you need none of the above.

Instead, InfraCrete® allows you to utilise the ground material that is already in place or use the existing, old base and wearing courses. It efficiently transforms these materials into a durable, highly resistant base and anti-freeze courses.

Highest stability for the highest requirements
Base and anti-freeze courses created with InfraCrete® are more stable than those produced by standard processes. At the same time, the InfraCrete® technology for soil stabilisation and HBL constitutes a nationally and internationally widespread procedure that complies with generally accepted rules of construction technology.

Of course, base and anti-freeze courses built with InfraCrete® comply with all requirements for use in water conservation areas.

How does InfraCrete® work?

Quicker hardening, shorter waiting times
The addition of InfraCrete® accelerates the hydration process. Not only does this increase the early strength of the newly constructed base course, it also lowers the hardening time considerably: the base course can be used after only 12 hours.

InfraCrete® also considerably increases the strength of the material during the 28-day hydration process.

Reduction of shrinkage cracks, increase in frost-resistance
The product achieves a 70% increase in the tensile bending strength during the early hydration phase, which distinctly reduces the risk of shrinkage cracks.

As a direct result, the water absorption of the base courses decreases and they become significantly more resistant to frost and thawing.

What are the advantages of InfraCrete®?

Less total costs of ownership, shorter construction time, impressive green footprint.

InfraCrete® is economically efficient and ecologically exemplary. InfraCrete® allows you to build and renovate bases courses in a modern, sustainable way. With InfraCrete® you can produce high-quality base courses with a long service life and low maintenance requirements without breaking your budget, while leaving a significant green footprint at the same time.

What are the advantages of InfraCrete®?

COST SAVINGS
The resource-saving use of the locally available material, which is converted into a long-lasting, load-bearing and frost-proof base course, eliminates the need for significant cost factors in comparison to conventional construction methods. Much shorter construction times make a contribution to further cost savings. Due to their specific properties, base courses created with InfraCrete® are characterized by a particularly low sensibility to (frost) damage, which results in comparatively low maintenance and repair requirements. The total costs over the calculated lifetime is significantly lower than in the case of conventionally built base courses, on average more than 30 percent.

TIME SAVINGS
By eliminating numerous work steps in comparison to conventional construction methods, the innovative InfraCrete® base courses enable noticeably shorter construction times. The base courses can be further processed after only 12 hours, for example by applying a wearing course, or their intended use. Especially in the field of road construction, this leads to significantly shorter interventions in the flow of traffic.

GREEN FOOTPRINT
The InfraCrete® base courses leave a significant green footprint in contrast to conventional construction methods. By using the material already available on site, there is no need to provide valuable resources in the form of fresh building materials. Thus, interference with the environment is minimized. Noticeably less CO2 and NOx are emitted into the environment by construction machinery and trucks during the construction work through significantly shorter construction times and the elimination of numerous work steps: no excavation, no disposal and no filler materials. Any environmental toxins present in the existing soil material, for example heavy metals or PAHs, are permanently and reliably immobilized by encapsulation in the base course so that they can no longer endanger the environment.

Where can I use InfraCrete®?

As a universal binder system, InfraCrete® is a cost-efficient and sustainable solution for many construction tasks involving the construction of highly durable base and anti-freeze courses.

For what projects can I use InfraCrete®?

InfraCrete® benefits all projects that require a durable foundation. This includes road construction, industrial, commercial, logistical and real estate projects. The product is equally well-suited for new constructions and restoration projects. Even temporary construction measures (construction site access roads, heavy-duty surfaces, surfaces for mobile cranes, etc.) can be built extremely cost-efficiently, as InfraCrete® base courses are fully recyclable.

With what soil types can I use InfraCrete®?

All coarse-grained, mixed-grained and fine-grained soil types, including organogenic soils, can be transformed into highly stable base and anti-freeze courses with InfraCrete®. The only type of soil unsuitable for base courses is organic peat. For restoration projects, you can reuse all materials in the existing base and wearing courses (including asphalt and cobblestone) to save resources.

Spotlight on: restoration projects


 

Road restoration: economical, fast, durable!

With InfraCrete®, you can save resources, time and money for your road restoration projects. Simply reuse almost all of the existing road material.

Mill and homogenise the old road surface and the upper wearing course. Now, combine the road material with InfraCrete® and Portland cement. This process also permanently immobilises contaminants, such as PAH and heavy metals, in the subsoil – so you do not have to spend large sums on their disposal.
