Product description
This precast concrete uses the highest quality white cement and aggregate giving excellent surface definition, minimal colouring and fantastic performance. However, these premium ingredients do lead to increased cost.
The pristine fair-faced finish requires a regular cleaning program as any marks or dirt will be very visible. A protective sealant or coating is recommended for increased longevity.
Massive structural and complex geometric forms, only limited by the transportation infrastructure, can be achieved by architectural precast concretes. They are very heavy but highly durable.
Concrete is not recyclable but downcycling is possible.

Intended applications
• External envelope
• Structural elemen
