Stable finish for structural and above ground needs

A hardwearing, highly durable and quality-assured sustainable concrete offering a stable finish for all your structural and above ground concrete needs.

We have used our expertise to create three EcoPlus Structural options:

Mix 6

Where to use it

  • Reinforced concrete inside enclosed buildings with moderate humidity
  • Cover to reinforcement greater than 25mm + fitting tolerance of 10mm
  • Wearing surface – limited to light foot and trolley traffic
  • Suitable for pumping

The benefits

  • Specially designed for structural concrete using 50% Regen substitute
  • Up to C25/30 concrete that complies with Exposure Class XC2 for corrosion induced by carbonation for 50 year design life
  • Easy to use, easy to place
  • Complies with BS 8500:2
CO2e Saving.
 

 61kg/ cubic metres on mixes with 30% PFA

CO2e Saving.
 

113kg/ cubic metres on mixes with CEMI

Mix 7

Where to use it

  • External reinforced vertical concrete sheltered from or exposed to rain
  • Cover to reinforcement greater than 25mm + fitting tolerance of 10mm
  • Internal wearing surface – general industrial
  • Suitable for pumping

The benefits

  • Specially designed for structural concrete using 50% Regen substitute
  • Up to C32/40 concrete that complies with Exposure Classes XC3/XC4 for corrosion induced by carbonation for 50 year design life and XF1
  • Easy to use, easy to place
  • Complies with BS 8500:2
CO2e Saving.

130kg/ cubic metres on mixes with CEMI

Mix 8

Where to use it

  • External reinforced horizontal concrete subject to saturation and freezing while wet (from participating outlets) without de-icing agent
  • Cover to reinforcement greater than 25mm + fitting tolerance of 10mm
  • Internal wearing surface – heavy industrial (not foundry floors or busy public roads)
  • Suitable for pumping

The benefits

  • Specially designed for structural concrete using at least 40% Regen substitute
  • Up to C40/50 concrete that complies with Exposure Classes XC3/XC4 for corrosion induced by carbonation for 50 year design life and XD1/XF3
  • Easy to use, easy to place
  • Complies with BS 8500:2

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.
