Concrete for deep foundations

Hanson Tremiecrete®

Perfect for use in deep foundations

Hanson UK’s Tremiecrete® is a bespoke engineering solution that meets the testing requirements detailed in EFFC/DFI Best Practice Guide to Tremie Concrete for Deep Foundations.

Formulated as a flowing, high performance and stable concrete – in conjunction with admixture partner Sika – it has been specifically developed as a solution for static segregation and excessive bleed. It optimises the constituent materials and incorporates an innovative Sika admixture that produces a stable internal structure of the fresh concrete under pressure.

Credentials

Tremiecrete® allows safer and easier placement of reinforcement cages. The modified internal structure of Tremiecrete® enables cages to be inserted easier than with conventional piling concrete, reducing the risk of misalignment and cage damage/loss in poor ground conditions.

Tremiecrete® has been tested and the results show that it demonstrates excellent flowing/ passing ability (L-Box test), while minimising bleed water when tested with the Bauer filtration and the modified ASTM bleed test.

The EN 206 requirements for geotechnical applications and the newly released 3rd Edition of the ICE Specification for Piling and Embedded Retaining Walls were used for guidance
during the formulation, evaluation and completion of the Hanson Tremiecrete® suite of mixes.

Sustainable solution

Regen inside.

Hanson concrete can incorporate a proportion of Hanson Regen, (Ground Granulated Blast furnace Slag or 'GGBS'), which is a cement replacement material, helping to produce a product that generates a much lower level of CO2 emissions than ordinary cement.
