Streetscape® High Strength Bedding Concrete
A superior quality polymer modified High Strength Bedding Concrete, manufactured under an ISO 9001 quality controlled environment; using dried sands, lime, cement and additives specially designed to meet or exceed the requirements of BS 7533 part 7:2010.
The product is used for bedding natural stone flags, cobbles and setts, clay, and concrete pavers in a rigid construction. High-Strength Bedding Concrete should be used in suitable bonded rigid constructions. The product should not be used in temperatures below 3° C in a falling temperature or below 1° C on a rising thermometer. The surface of the substrate should not be frozen or >30° C before bedding commences. Movement joints will be required in rigid/ bonded constructions and should be designed and marked by the design team.
High-Strength Bedding Concrete can be applied in a bed of 10 – 75mm in a single pass. Greater thicknesses can be applied but should be laid wet on wet with each layer being sufficiently compacted prior to laying another pass. When applying another layer to a layer that has cured, it should first be primed with Priming Slurry. Bedded areas should be protected from foot traffic for a minimum of 12 hours and from vehicle traffic for a minimum of 24 hours dependent on temperature and site conditions.
