Promptis - Rapid Hardening Concrete
Promptis is a new
concrete solution, the fast setting concrete can help save
valuable time during construction.
In an ever more demanding and extremely competitive environment, with tight
deadlines and even tighter margins, speed and efficiency which save time are
critical. Promptis, from CEMEX, is a new rapid hardening concrete solution that
can help save valuable hours.
Rapid hardening concrete
|✓ Rapid construction|
✓ Strip formwork within 6 hours*
✓ Up to 40N strength in just 24 hours
✓ Easy to compact and finish
Promptis has similar characteristics to conventional concrete but it reaches accelerated early strength after just four hours and still maintains initial flow properties and workability for up
to 120 minutes. Formwork can be stripped after only six hours*, saving time and money.
It is an ideal solution for projects such as road and rail renovation, where the use of
Promptis could help minimise traffic restrictions.
The properties of Promptis are the result of a carefully selected combination of specialist
admixtures combined with expert mix design.
Promptis has been launched globally rather than just nationally, as it produces
consistent results using a broad variety of cements, available in different countries.
In addition there is global market demand, with Promptis suitable for use in both
readymix and precast applications.

Applications for Early Strength Concrete
Promptis is a product for a broad range
of specific applications where early strength is required:
» Fast demolding
– in buildings: columns, walls, beams,
– in civil engineering: high walls,
» Easy handling
– in precast facilities: beams, panels,
specifi c elements
» Renovation and repair
– an ideal solution where there is limited
time to carry out renovation or repair
