Product description
The sandblasting process applied to this architectural precast concrete strips away the surface cement, exposing the aggregate below. Dirt and marks are less visible on this textured surface, however it is more difficult to clean.
To achieve a high quality concrete with little colouring, white cement, good quality sand and dolomite aggregate has been used. These premium ingredients can also lead to increased costs.
Massive structural and complex geometric forms, only limited by the transportation infrastructure, can be achieved by architectural precast concretes. Elements are very heavy but highly durable.
Concrete is not recyclable but downcycling is possible.

Intended applications
• External envelope
• Structural elements
