RAMAC is well-suited to take up higher loads, for applying thinner constructions and/or saving on reinforcement. The derived flexural strength (splitting tensile strength) is higher than that of conventional concrete (at the same compressive strength).
Penetration in RAMAC by brine, for example, is very low. Due to the low chloride penetration, reinforcement is better protected against corrosion. Also acids and other liquid substances penetrate less deeply. That prolongs service life. It is also more hygienic in its use.
The overall environmental impact per m3 is significantly lower for RAMAC than that of conventional concrete mortar. Depending on the application, this differs by 40 to 80% CO2. Read more about sustainability
RAMAC is produced and processed in accordance with a method that is common for concrete mortar. This makes it easy to produce in conventional concrete mixing plants. The production process deviates very little. That also applies for its processing by, for example, compacting, pumping and finishing by power trowelling in the usual way with conventional equipment.
By adapting the ingredients, the open time is adjustable and at least comparable to that of conventional concrete mortar. Thanks to its excellent adhesion to (conventional) concrete products, RAMAC is also easily applied in combination.
