ULTICRETE

The ultimate heavy duty solution

The result of Tarmac’s unrivalled expertise in cement and asphalt technology, ULTICRETE is an advanced grouted asphalt. It offers outstanding resistance to deformation and delivers lasting performance in the most extreme environments including aircraft refuelling areas, container ports and distribution centres. It offers comparable resistance to concrete but with far shorter completion times. It can be opened to pedestrian traffic in as little as 7 hours, light vehicle traffic after 24 hours and heavy vehicles after 48 hours.

ULTICRETE is only available for installation by our own expert Contracting division who evaluate each site to make sure our clients get the right solution and then deliver it to the highest industry standards.

Benefits

  1. Ultimate strength

    Exceptional resistance to deformation from heavy point loading, with a grout compressive strength of 60 N/mm2 at 28 days.

  2. Exceptional durability

    Proven to deliver lasting performance in the most extreme environments including aircraft refuelling areas, container ports and distribution centres.

  3. Faster completion

    As a practical alternative to concrete in appropriate environments, ULTICRETE can be laid quickly and is suitable for pedestrian traffic after 7 hours, light vehicle traffic after 24 hours and heavy vehicles after 48 hours. This compares to the lengthy delays normally associated with opening concrete surfaces.

  4. Chemical resistance

    Excellent resistance to fuel spillage including aviation fuel, diesel, de-icers and petrol.

Case studies

Asphalt

ULTICRETE Recycling Plant

A durable, heavy duty surface was required for a large £142 million, 14.1 MW waste recycling and combined heat and power plant that was being constructed at Millerhill, near Dalkeith. Using ULTICRETE allowed the surface to be opened to site traffic after just 48 hours, meaning minimal disruption and lost time for the construction programme. In addition to the time saving, the client was also happy with the smooth, jointless finish that would be easy to keep clean once the plant was in operation.
