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 […]

The Polyurethane Injection Resin that Expands 50x in Size

Bluey’s BluRez CSW polyurethane resin can be used in a number of environments, from dams and embankments to retaining walls.

WestConnex News: New Design Plans for the WestConnex Twin Tunnels

ZeoCem: The Binder That’s Increasing the Design Life of Our Cementitious Range By 3x

More than 90% of Australia’s sewers are lined with OPC concrete, which deteriorates when it comes into contact with harsh acidic environments. The repair of these assets is an ongoing challenge for owners and government authorities as the existing network is suffering widespread attack. This is because regular OPC liners cannot suppress the metabolism of […]

Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete & Mortars

Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete: From the wide range of opinions about the best performing materials to the dozens of available products, the selection of concrete repair materials is a highly complex and challenging task. Depending on the application, the key drivers of performance can be categorised as either; durability, structural or aesthetic performance. This […]
