More Information About Self Levelling Concrete

The product cost of high performance concrete can be more than offset by significant productivity and performance gains. Because Evolution™  can flow from a single point (note: on large pours more than one point may be required), is self-levelling, selfcompacting and eliminates the need to hire expensive vibration equipment, the cost of placing the concrete can be significantly reduced. In addition to the cost benefits there is also the improved on-site health and safety to take into consideration.

Roman Way, Hereford

Case Study

Roman Way

A large housing development in Hereford, Gloucestershire had a requirement for a large volume of self-compacting concrete to be used for oversites on multiple constructions across this sizeable site.

Crest Nicholson sent an enquiry to CEMEX looking for a suitable self-compacting concrete, Evolution FlooringTM was designed to the customer’s satisfaction and over 300m3 was supplied, giving a quick, consistent and productive solution.

DoubleTree, Hilton Hotel

Case Study

Royal Mint Case Study

The hotel was designed to complement this historically significant part of the City of London. Its secondary objective was to achieve the highest possible sustainability credentials, delivered to a tight programme with a concrete that could not only perform well, but was aesthetically pleasing.

CEMEX’s technical staff had early involvement with designing the concrete for various applications including the grade 50/60 Evolution Ultimate.

The self-compacting characteristics of Evolution made it perfect for the task of infilling the narrow gaps, whilst speeding up the process by removing the need for compaction.
