PROPERTIES OF GEOCEMENT

  • Compressive Strength
  • The stronger interface between aggregate and binder in Geocrete cement leads to the superior mechanical properties and long-term durability of Geocrete.

  • Tensile Strength
  • The tensile strength of Geocrete is same as in the case of Portland cement concrete.

  • Unit-Weight
  • The unit-weight varies between 2330 and 2430kg/m3.

  • Sulphate Resistance
  • Geocement is not susceptible to sulphate attack as there is no gypsum or ettringite formation in geocement use.

  • Acid Resistance
  • Geocement has got a significantly better acid resistance.

  • Reinforced Geocrete Columns And Beams
  • The nominal compressive strength of Geocrete is between 40MPa and 90 MPa. Geocement-based Geocrete structures can be designed using the standard design provisions

  • Fire Resistance :
  • Geocement is fire resistant and can take up temperature upto 700°C. Chimneys and GASIFIERS can be made with Geocrete. The Geocement and Geocrete gains additional strength after exposure to high temperature.

  • Geocement Precast Concrete Products :
  • The early-age strength gain is a unique characteristic that can best be exploited in the precast industry and is used to maximize the productivity.

  • Excellent Resistance To Chemical Attack
  • Geocrete has shown to have superior acid resistance and is very suitable for manufacturing industries for sewer systems and waste water effluent treatment plants.
