Technology, Safety & Service
A commitment to environmental awareness and sustainability is sweeping the construction industry, and HBK Remix has responded with concrete mixes that conform to “green” building practices.
Carbon Cure technology is a groundbreaking innovation in the concrete industry that holds great promise for mitigating the environmental impact of construction. By permanently storing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions within the concrete, this technology significantly reduces the carbon footprint associated with concrete production.
We are effectively integrating Carbon Cure technology into our operations, implementing it step by step. The process involves injecting CO2 into the concrete mix during production. As the concrete cures, the CO2 undergoes a chemical reaction and is mineralized, resulting in its permanent storage within the material. This not only decreases the carbon emissions but also enhances the durability and strength of the concrete.
Firstly, it allows the local projects to actively contribute to combating climate change by reducing CO2 emissions. It also provides a competitive advantage by meeting the increasing demand for sustainable building materials. Additionally, concrete produced with Carbon Cure technology maintains the same high quality as traditional concrete, ensuring that structural integrity is not compromised.
Furthermore, using this technology aligns with sustainability goals and supports certifications like LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). It enables us to meet green building standards and attract environmentally conscious customers.
High MoE concrete
The Modulus of Elasticity of concrete is one of the most important mechanical properties of concrete since it impacts the serviceability and the structural performance of reinforced concrete structure. In Certain high rise building design high value of Modulus of Elasticity for the concrete is essential to increase the structural stability. HBK remix can provide high MoE in the range of 43,000 MPa – 47,000 MPa by carefully proportioning the right aggregate combination and suitable cement paste.
Low Shrinkage Concrete
Shrinkage compensating concrete is concrete containing expansive cement or an expansive admixture, which produces expansion during hardening there by offsets the contraction occurring during drying (drying shrinkage).These type of concrete can be used in concrete slabs, pavements, structures and repair works to minimize dryings shrinkage cracks.
Concrete produced with anti-wash out admixtures increases the cohesiveness of concrete to a level that allows limited exposure to water with little loss of cement. HBK Remix has the expertise to carry out the off shore concrete pours that also require extended workability to allow for long haulage time. This type of concrete allows the placement of concrete in water and under water without the use of tremies.
Structural light weight concrete is made with light weight aggregates (all-light weight concrete) or with a combination of lightweight and normal weight aggregates. HBK Remix can offer different densities of LWC depending on the requirements for suitable strengths.
Fibre Reinforced Concrete offers a cost-effective solution for the reinforcement of slabs and walls on numerous applications. Our most popular systems is Polypropylene Fibres, mostly used in residential applications such as garages, floors, sidewalks, pool decks, driveways, etc. Benefits of this are controls plastic shrinkage, cost advantage over welded wire mesh, always positioned in compliance with code
Some of the water retaining structures requires very low chloride content in the concrete. Washing of the aggregates considerably reduces the chloride contents in the coarse and fine aggregate fractions which contribute to the major portion of the chloride contents in concrete. HBK remix has the sophisticated washing plant that washes all fractions of aggregates to reduce the chloride content and produce low chloride concrete.
Depending up on the rate of rise of the form work in a slip form operation, concrete has to be produced with the help of appropriate admixtures to maintain the workability and steady setting time. HBK Remix has the technology to provide slipform concrete to suite the site conditions.
Depending on the requirements of the designers HBK Remix can produce concrete with different types of durable concrete. The conditions are generally governed by the aggressive environment to which the structure is exposed and sticking to the codes of practice 50 years or 100 years of concrete has been successfully produced by HBK Remix for prestigious projects in Qatar.
We can help enhance the appearance of your driveway, pool deck, garage floor, or any other area that requires concrete installation. The possibilities are endless. The HBK Remix has a variety of pigments available to add in the concrete to obtain various tones of color, and give the project a unique look.
Mass concreting requires the core temperature to be controlled to avoid thermal cracking. HBK Remix has various supplementary cementetious additions at our disposal to suite the projects requirements.
HBK Remix offers a wide range of concrete mixes designed for faster setting times. These products are the key to meeting the tight scheduling demands of today’s construction projects. We offer an array of mixes for many applications, depending on the desired set time and strength requirement.
Flowable Concrete can be poured at high slumps for different levels of workability, It can achieve various slumps depending on the application, flowable Concrete will not affect water/cement ratio. Benefits of the Flowable concrete are It maintains normal setting times, faster placing, reduced vibration, labor saving, reduced honeycombing, easier pumping
HBK Remix also offers self-compacting concrete mixes for applications where reinforcing steel is highly congested, a superior finish is required and where ease of placement is desirable. Benefits of SCC are Earlier form stripping,increased early strength gain , reduced finishing time and quicker service application of structure.
