Tarmac Toproc Ready-Mix Concrete - ICI Zeneca - Grangemouth Scotland

The project’s concrete needed to resist exposure to large quantities of effluent and, following consultation with Topmix and Elkem Materials of Norway, Toproc CR was selected as the material best suited to this onerous application. Over 2000m3 of the material was placed in the first phase of the project, forming large concrete tanks within the complex. These chemical resistant tanks will long outlast conventional concrete tanks, thus ensuring a cost-effective solution.

Technologies

Innovative Toproc formulations have now been developed to provide a ready-mixed, chemical resisting concrete with a tough, wear resistant surface that can be placed conventionally. Toproc has a dense, impermeable matrix ensuring that the penetration of aggressive chemicals is minimised, resulting in minimal wear.

Toproc CR was specified for this major project in Scotland to provide the most cost effective solution in terms of chemical resistance. A blend of chemically resisting cement and microsilica was used as the cementitious component of the mix, which provides an exceptional resistance to a whole range of aggressive chemicals.
