Utilising Calcium and Silica to Redefine What a Structural Sewer Lining Shotcrete Is

The BluCem ZeoGlass formulation includes the use of two, non-traditional concrete materials; Calcium and silica. These supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) not only reduce our environmental impact, but the SCMs also improve the durability of the structural sewer liner.   Calcium: Conventional geopolymer concretes will not activate in the presence of Calcium ions, yet Calcium is […]

Filling Cracks? Here’s What You Need to Know

Repairing cracks with injection grout helps provide waterproofing and corrosion protection. Check out the BluRez range of epoxy and polyurethane resins.

Concrete Topping To Industry-Leading Standards

The BluCem RF20 is ideal for a number of applications including levelling concrete floors and resurfacing rain damaged slabs.

Choosing the Right Concrete Repair Mortar for Patch Repairs

Cementitious patch repairs are a necessary and effective solution for strengthening concrete structures, areas of which have become defective or spalled.

Basement Waterproofing, An Art in Protection – Daniel Bosco

As civil engineers, we at Bluey have seen the issues caused by poorly constructed basements in residential settings first-hand and believe that it is a problem that needs to be dealt with sooner rather than later. Traditionally, basements haven’t been built far below the water table which means there hasn’t been a great need for […]

Ensuring TBM Compression Gaskets Resist Natural Groundwater Pressure

Until recently, terminating cross-passage membranes to TBM segments had been one of the unsolved mysteries of tunnelling. Thanks to recent innovations in gaskets and pressure terminations, all hydrostatic forces can be resisted to ensure they meet the ‘no damp patches’ specification. The most challenging part of any cross-passage termination is ensuring the membrane connects and […]
