High Performance Post Mix Available From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

Here at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire we are pleased to be able to sell High Performance Post Mix. This is a formulated product to produce high early strength post hole concrete for setting all types of posts including treated wood, metal, or metal supports, concrete and plastic posts.

There are several benefits of using High Performance Post Mix:

  • Fast setting- sets in less than 10mins
  • Easy to use- just add water
  • Saves time- quick and convenient
  • Economic- less waste than some other methods

 

How To Go About Using Post Mix in 6 Easy Steps:

  1. Dig hole to recommended specifications.
  2. Fill to about one third (1/3) to half (½) full with water. In sandy soils use slurry of Post Mix and water to line the sides.
  3. Place the post in the hole.
  4. Pour in Post Mix at a steady rate around the post while ensuring thorough mixing. Bring dry powder up to the surface of the water. Add a small amount of extra water if any dry powder remains, tamp surface to eliminate air voids.
  5. Align the post to the desired position. No bracing required. Post Mix sets in approximately 5 to 10 minutes. Cold weather will slightly retard the set time whilst hot weather will slightly accelerate the set time. Warm water may be used in cold conditions to speed up the set.
  6. Cover the top of the hole with grass or earth.
