LAS VEGAS

The QUIKRETE® Companies, the leading manufacturer of pre-blended commercial-grade concrete products for building and rehabilitation projects, expanded its extensive line of structural repair products with the introduction of QUIKRETE® Form and Pour. Designed to make structural repairs to bridges, parking structures, tunnels, dams, walls and floors, QUIKRETE® Form and Pour is a high-flow, high-strength, shrinkage-compensated concrete delivered through a pump system for exceptional job site performance and efficiency. QUIKRETE® Form and Pour is being introduced at the World of Concrete (WOC) in booth S10227 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from Feb. 2-5, 2016.

QUIKRETE® Form and Pour is a factory blended, micro silica enhanced formula of Portland cement, aggregates and chemical admixtures, used in building or repair applications requiring a high-quality concrete with a maximum aggregate size of 3/8”. QUIKRETE® Form and Pour is appropriate for vertical and horizontal rehabilitation projects 1 ½” to 24” because it can be mixed from a stiff plastic consistency to a free flowing virtually self-consolidating consistency. In addition, QUIKRETE® Form and Pour features agents to minimize plastic shrinkage, and an air-entraining additive for freeze-thaw durability that is especially helpful in cold regions of the country. In 28 days, the material achieves 6,500 PSI at a 7” to 9” slump and more than 8,000 PSI at a 4” slump. QUIKRETE® Form and Pour is available in 80-pound bags for approximately $10.

A comprehensive display of QUIKRETE® products along with hourly demonstrations will be conducted daily in booth S10227 at WOC from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a lunch break from noon – 1 p.m. QUIKRETE® will randomly award two people $1,000 each day for attending a product demonstration as verified by having a show badge scanned at the booth. More information on QUIKRETE® products and projects is available at www.quikrete.com, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and YouTube.
