SHS Foaming LightweightSee Description
As SHS innovative lightweight concrete densities can be control, we are able to make blocks and panel of verious shapes and sizes as well as density ranging from 600 kg/m3 to 1600 kg/m3. For example : a 100mm thick (4") blocks of size 200mm x 450m ( 8" x 18") it be made to 6 kg per block ( using 600 kg/m3 dry density cement only mix), 7 kg, 8kg, 9 kg ( at 900 density mix) up or to 16 kg per block if at 1600 density ( cement and fine sand mix for those above 1000 density)
anufacturing of block panels to any require size with density ranging from 500 kg / m3 to 1800 kg /m3. Metal, wood or plastic mould could be used. Oiling of mould is compulsory. After years of experimental and testing, we are in a position to advise or to supply you with the perfect mould. We advised customer to manufacture 300mm x 600mm panels, thickness varies from 75mm to 150mm. It's the perfect wall because of its excellent sound and heat insulation properties.
Panel with Density of 600 to 800 kg / m3 can be to size as large as 300mm x 1200mm x 100mm thick can still be lifted by a single worker. It can float on water.
Purpose LEGO type block panel in which a steel bar as well as wiring conduit or water pipe can be inserted and fill again with lightweight concrete to make a very strong load bearing wall or retaining wall. It can be cast to any require size.
Compressive strength of SHS is between 1 MPa to 30 MPa. It has good heat insulation properties and is a very good acoustic material. Densities lower then 800 actually floats in water. Panels can be cast with stone effect finish appearance. Lightweight panels as thin as 25 mm thickness and mix with pigments can make decorative colour instead of normal cement colour appearance.
A Pre-cast panel or cast in- situ with moldSee Description
Pre-cast panel as large as 3 meter by 6 meter are using 1500 kg / m3 to 1800 kg /m3. It can be horizontal on the floor or vertically with large panel mould. But advised we against pre-cast when you can better save more by in-place casting to make walls and prevent cracks.
Large reinforce pre-cast panels being pour with minimal formwork. Between 1500 kg/m3 and 1800 kg/m3 density is used. Mixing is done with a ready-mix truck.
The perfect new way to cast road dividers / blocks as it not only act as a divider but also a crash barriers that prevent dead impact, it absorbs the impact. Proposal can be made to airport authorities to usedSHS as an aircraft arresting bed in cases where aircraft over shoots runway and wheels will be arrested.
We have done research into casting of New Jersey blocks for road maintenance, Using conventional concrete it weights 380kg a block, by using SHS 1000 Density mix, it weight 168 kg and by using 800 Density it weights 125 kg per block. If used double mould where you cast the skin with high density and the core with low density and it may only weight 60 to 80 kg.
Our testing and R&D has made it possible for us to cast panel as thin as 20mm, short fiber mesh is randomly added to the mix. It will be used as infill for fire-door, acoustic panels as well as heat insulation related industries.
Cornices panels in foaming lightweightSee Description
Cornices panels can be cast at a fraction of existing methods but we purpose in-place cast directly connecting the in-place cast wall, just add the necessary extra mould made either with metal plates or wood.
Garden walking pavers below are made by inserting pebbles a few hours after foam concrete is pour onto mould, we suggest high density for this type of products.
Water tanks, swimming pools, pottery, and many other products can be made by SHS with density ranging from 900 to 1300 kg / m3 density. Maximum water penetration is 14 % compare to 56 % for normal concrete and 100% for clay bricks.
Road re-entrenchment, water pipe and fiber optic cable protection has been extensively used all over Europe, where here we haven't even heard or seen it before.
special Foaming Concrete usageSee Description
This project was undertaken to check the usage of Foam Concrete in the application for bridge and culvert approach was done using conventional method, that is by using 200mm x 6 meter concrete squre piles totaling dozens of piles and then concrete slap cappings, where as on the other side a 1000 density lightweight concrete 1.1 meter x 7 meter wide and 13 meter in length was pour directly on top of the soil overlapping the culverts concrete slap, no reinforcement whatsover was use. The overall cost was many tme lesser on the SHS side then on the conventional way side. Still a bump was detected on the conventional piling and concrete slap side where as no sinking was detected on SHS side. If this was method is use you won't have to get 2 bump whenever you drive across a culvert or a bridge.
reduce deadload; better heat insulationSee Description
SHS - Panel casting at Jakarta, the job requires the casting of Lightweight Concrete 1250 density mix, the specification only allows panels with a maximum 160 kg per m2 of 100mm thick pre-cast wall panels.
As Jakarta's is in an earthquake area, reinforcement with a layer of BRC was used.
Casted panel is ready for skim coating and lifting 28 hours later and painted and ready to be lifted to trucks and transported to site for lifting to be put in place.
A total of 2400 panels was pre-cast in record time, indicating SHS success. The total weight of the panels was reduced by 45 % compare to bricks or blocks. Cost and casting time was reduced.
