Quickcem Available from Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire

Hanson Quickcem is manufactured to a proprietary Technical Specifi­cation and is a Portland cement containing calcium sulfo-aluminate and special additives, developed to give quick setting and hardening charac­te­ristics. At present there is no appropriate British standard for this product.

Hanson Quickcem is an ideal cement for repair and maintenance applications where the increased rate of set and strength development are beneficial in both mortar and concrete, allowing normal services to be brought back into operation after only a few hours.

Hanson Quickcem is suitable for:

  • fixing manhole covers
  • fitting ridge tiles
  • patch repairs
  • concrete paths/steps
  • repairing rendering and floor screeds
  • fixing fence posts and railings

Depending on the mix used and the ambient temperature, workability will be retained for between 10 and 20 minutes. It is important that the concrete, mortar or screed is made without prolonged mixing and is placed and fully compacted as soon as possible after mixing. (The amount of materials mixed in any one operation should be small enough to ensure that all the material can be used and the mixing equipment thoroughly cleaned out before the mix has set.)

Note: The rapid setting nature of this product makes it unsuitable for large concrete slabs or large screed areas as they cannot normally be placed and finished in the available time.
CEM I Portland Cement (PC) may be added, although setting times and strength may change depending on the quantity of CEM I Portland Cement added.
