How long will it last?
This product has been designed to the latest IS Code and QCI standards. If placed and finished properly, it will provide many years of good service.
Will it take the weight of a lorry?
Yes, it is particularly suitable for lorry traffic. However, for this application it is important that the concrete is laid to the correct depth on a suitable wellcompacted sub-base.
How deep should I lay RMC Certified Mix concrete for driveways?
As a guide, the typical slab thickness on well-compacted sub-base should be a minimum of:
House drives and paths 75mm – 100mm
Roadways and trafficked slabs 125mm – 150mm
How soon after placing can I traffic the concrete?
Early trafficking by heavy vehicles will damage the new surface and may also cause serious cracking. Ideally, the concrete should not be subjected to vehicular use for seven days without protecting the surface.
