4X COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

Using Sonocrete can increase early compressive strength after 8 hours by a factor of 4.

STRIP EARLIER

With this increase in early compressive strength moulds can be stripped up to 6 hours earlier than those utilising conventional concrete mixing.

30% LESS CEMENT
SAME COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

When using Sonocrete, the amount of cement needed can be reduced by 30% with early compressive strength remaining similar.

LESS CEMENT, INCREASED EARLY COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH

In a standard concrete composition a reduction in cement clinker by 40% would lead to a significant decrease in the 12 hour compressive strength. However when the same concrete is treated with Sonocrete the early compressive strength after 8 hours will reach almost stripping strength.

MASSIVE REDUCTION IN CEMENT

In an average concrete plant that produces 35,000m³ concrete per annum. This translates to a cement clinker reduction of approximately 3,200 tonnes per annum.

Looking at all the precast plants in the world the clinker saved could amount to 110,000,000 tonnes per year.

110 Million Tonnes Clinker Saved Per Annum

Such a reduction in clinker translates to a carbon reduction of 85 Million tonnes per year

REMOVING
85 MILLION TONNES OF C02

A saving comparable to switching off 23 coal fired plants.

Or taking 18 Million Cars off the road

A saving of this dimension has a similar impact as planting around 1.4 billion tree seedlings and letting them grow for 10 years.

A MORE SUSTAINABLE FUTURE WITH SONOCRETE

Decreasing cement content is the right step into a more sustainable future.
With sonocrete this is possible.
