AbsorbCrete® a super absorbing dry mix that is an entirely new category of concrete. This new material is designed to be used primarily as a flood and debris control material, however, there are many other uses for this unique cementitious mix, such as barricades and armor.
Absorbcrete® is patented as Hygroscopic Cementitious Material, a cementitious, non-mixing concrete that contains cement, aggregates, and a proprietary blend of fibers that will absorb water, hydrate the cement, evaporate excess water and when required, reabsorb water again and again in quantities superior to other concrete mixes.
Rapidly absorbs water and capable of rehydrating
Produces a matrix that gains additional water weight within a fixed overall volume
Counter the effects of hydrodynamic forces, mudslides and debris control during flooding
Protects structural elements, which are prone to erosion or scour
Lighter than the same volume of standard materials used for flood control (concrete, rock, etc.)
Absorbs over 50% water weight by volume, which provides a lighter material for transportation and deployment, gaining an impressive mass weight when hydrated to resist flood forces
The Absorbcrete® is a non-mixing concrete, which decreases the normal cost and time constraints of installing ready-mix concrete, especially in times of inclement weather. Installation of this lighter material requires less equipment and personnel than what is normally used in flood control projects. This material can be placed in forms or ready-to-install containers. Since the increased weight to volume ratio is greater when in contact with water, less Absorbcrete® is needed for flood control, water, mud, and debris diversion and scour protection.
