EMERGENCY REPAIR MATERIAL RESOLVES ACO DRAIN FAILURES AT ARMY TANK GARRISON

Meon were proud to provide recommendations and guidance on our specialist concrete repair products, for Dyer & Butler in a recent ACO drain repair.

Case Study

Problem

Dyer & Butler have a long history in construction of high-quality projects, within the most challenging defence and aviation sectors.

 A recent project included a challenge of repairing failing ACO drains, in a busy tank training garrison with very heavy military equipment traffic.

The surface water drain off was starting to affect the surrounding area, the impact of leaving this situation speeds up exponentially and causes more damage in the future.

In such a busy heavy military environment, safe and efficient repair was essential.

Solution

This emergency repair would require a fast early strength concrete, with the ability to be used at over 200mm depth.

It was crucial that the repair would be resistant to the impact of heavy military traffic and have a fast-acting time, with minimal shrinkage.

We recommended our MAGMA HardMaster W615 as the most effective solution for the problem at hand, meeting all the requirements for such a repair.

Result

The MAGMA HardMaster W615 was a highly effective solution, thanks to its excellent early compressive strength and ability to withstand the rigours of the heavy military traffic, in just 90 minutes.

The product benefits from continuous strength gain and shrinkage resistance as the product cures, reaching its maximum strength in 24 hours.

The product was easily applied without any need for compaction equipment due to the flowing nature of the product, which allowed for minimal disruption of garrison procedures.
