Hard-Wear®

HARD TO THE CORE

Hard-Wear® concrete is an innovative ready mix product that outperforms other mixes, even under the toughest of conditions.

Inland Concrete has developed Hard-Wear® concrete, a revolutionary mix for high wear applications. Strength and durability are built right into Hard-Wear concrete mixes ensuring uniform hardness and wear resistance throughout the full depth of the slab, not just on the surface.

Hard-Wear® concrete is ideal for applications requiring abrasion resistance.

PERFORMANCE CHARACTERISTICS

Superior Flexibility

  • Available in air-entrained and non-air-entrained mixes
  • Can be used for all applications

Excellent Finishability

  • Compatible with all finishing applications including troweled, broomed and stamped
  • Placed and finished the same as standard concrete
  • Improved finishability with reduced placing labour
  • Eliminates performance inconsistencies typicallyexperienced with other types of hardeners

Outstanding Durability

  • Increased abrasion, wear and impact resistance
  • Uniform hardness throughout the full depth of theslab, not just the surface
  • Eliminates hardener delamination
  • Plant batching ensures quality control, consistencyand full slab wear resistance

Economical

  • Cost savings to owners compared to other high performance concretes and placers due to the elimination of additional hardeners and clean up
  • Eliminates performance problems experienced with other labour intensive hardeners

Environmentally Friendly

  • Elimination of dust and dust protection improves working environments

PRODUCT PERFORMANCE

The charts for Compressive Strength
and Slump are a result of an engineering review conducted by D.R. (Rusty) Morgan, Ph.D., P.Eng., Chief Materials Engineer for AMEC Earth & Environmental Ltd. The Abrasion charts depict the results of tests conducted by Pildysh Technologies Inc.

Hard-Wear® concrete out-performed in all the tests conducted with a GU control and GU with a non-metallic hardener.
