Wherever mass concreting work is involved, large differences in temperature between the core and surface of structures results in thermal cracks. Higher concrete temperature means a lot of disadvantages. For example, high temperature leads to faster drying of concrete, loss of workability, formation of cold joints, excessive plastic shrinkage cracks, rapid evaporation of curing water and difficulties in finishing concrete and overall reduction in the 28 day compressive strength.
To overcome these disadvantages, UltraTech Concrete has introduced a special concrete 'UltraTech Thermocon'.
UltraTech Thermocon is produced using chilled water or ice flakes that helps control the temperature of the concrete and maintain it within acceptable limits. The other ingredients used in this concrete are also thermally controlled to bring down the temperature within acceptable limits at the time of placing. This considerably reduces the ill-effects of high temperature like thermal cracks, plastic shrinkage, faster drying of concrete, formation of cold joints, etc.Read More
This concrete is specially designed by lowering the placing temperature with careful proportioning of binder and cooling the ingredients
Ideal for mass concreting hence enhancing the durability of the structure
