Better pumpability is achieved thanks to the presence of numerous microfines below 2µm, which helps to increase the arheological behavior of mixes. These microfines also result in a product with consistent behavior in water absorption, which is highly valued for self-compacting concrete.
Thanks to its bright color, Calcitec® is recommended for use in architectural concrete, thus minimizing the use of coloring agents. Besides this technical advantage, Calcitec® can partially replace cement in the mix, once certified according to the Equivalent Concrete Performance Concept in line with European Concrete Standard EN 206. This enables producers to make significant cost savings and carbon footprint savings for their LCA-promotion.
