HT Pumpcrete

HT Pumpcrete is a pre-bagged pumpable concrete that has excellent flowing characteristics.


Advantages

  • HT Pumpcrete simplifies placement and construction of box fronts and other underground structures.
  • High flow characteristics allow effective consolidation of loose material.
  • Trafficable footwalls can be constructed by flowing Pumpcrete into previously levelled large loose aggregate.
  • HT Pumpcrete can be mixed with tailings to provide a yielding grout pack filler for stope support.

Packaging

Outer bag Inner bag
Virgin, woven, pre-printed, polypropylene bag, with stitched polyester seams. Colour coded for easy identification of product. Virgin, low density, polyethylene bag with heat-sealed sides and bottom seams.

 

Storage
Materials should normally be stored under cover. Reduced shelf life may occur if packaging is exposed to the elements. Packaging materials may deteriorate, allowing moisture ingress into the cementitious binder. This could lead to premature hardening.

 

Shelf Life
HT Pumpcrete products will store for up to 6 months in dry conditions.

 

Safety

General The use of eye protection, gloves and dust masks is recommended. Follow the typical precautions as prescribed for handling Portland cement.
Inhalation Constant exposure over long periods of time to very high concentrations may cause a cough with phlegm.
Skin contact Prolonged exposure could sensitize skin causing mild irritation. In extreme cases, dermatitis could occur.
Eyes Use eye protection. However, if eyes become affected, irrigate eyes with copious amounts of clean water. Seek medical attention.
Ingestion Ingestion of harmful quantities is unlikely to occur. If ingested, drink copious amounts of drinking water and consult a medical practitioner. DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING.
