PROJECT COMPLETION: 2006

CLIENT/END USER: ABIGROUP/SACL

APPLICATION

WHERE WE USED BLUCEM HE80

The main Sydney Airport runway crosses a bridge over General Holmes Drive. The bridge was strengthened using precast beams grouted beneath the runway using BluCem HE80 Early Strength Grout.

 

WHY WE USED BLUCEM HE80

The use of BluCem HE80 allowed the precast beams to be placed, grouted and the runway resurfaced during the limited shutdown periods between 11pm – 5am. The grout was pumpable allowing it to flow around the beams and achieved 10MPa in 1 hours.

 

FEATURES

High early strength development

Pumpable

Very low shrinkage

 

BENEFITS

Allowed work to be completed in limited access times

Product could flow and fully encapsulate the precast beams

Runway was trafficable within 1 hour

 

SUMMARY

The properties of the BluCem HE80 allowed the client to meet the tight shut down schedule and technical requirements of the airport with no ongoing operations.
