New Hope for concrete speeds up pouring jobs

Hope Construction Materials has launched a new ready mixed concrete range that it says will speed up pouring operations.

According to Hope, Hopeflow is a suite of high performance self-compacting concretes that are designed to flow quickly and easily around complex formwork and rebar without the need for vibration.

Hope Construction Materials technical director Mike Bull said: “A combination of concrete additive technology and a formulated blend of aggregate help to give Hopeflow its remarkable properties.

“After an intensive development programme and live trials with construction partners, we’re delighted to introduce the new product after the launch of the Hope Construction Materials in January.

“While the idea of selfcompacting concrete is not that new, the innovation we are bringing with Hopeflow is the ability to supply it almost anywhere in the country.”

According to Hope, the products have already been used by a number of firms in the industry and have been shown to increase the efficiency, speed, quality and finish of projects, with fewer people required to complete jobs.
