Our admixtures DriveCon® SAP and DriveCon® SloSet will set the benchmark in the industry for the production of permeable concrete

WaterPave has for many years been known throughout the industry as the place to go for all things relating to permeable paving, specialising in installation. After spending years perfecting the art of the placement of permeable paving it was now time to turn our attention to producing permeable concrete.

For many years WaterPave struggled with the inconsistent supply of permeable concrete. So WaterPave invested in sending their Director, Martin Cook to learn from the experts in the United States. After days of training on the technical aspects of how to produce a successful permeable/pervious concrete, WaterPave was successful in securing the rights to the game changing patented admixtures from its technical partner in the US. This now allows WaterPave to enter into the concrete admixture industry specialising in specific admixtures for permeable concrete throughout Australia and Asia-Pacific. These admixtures are the key ingredients in producing a successful permeable concrete combined with the correct mix design.

WaterPave went onto purchasing its own concrete truck and raw materials to begin running trials with the new admixtures. These mixes were used in WaterPave’s own installations to enable them to monitor the performance and make any adjustments that may have been necessary along the way.

Fast track 18 months and WaterPave’s DriveCon® permeable concrete is now available to purchase from our network of authorised batch plants, @economix @vicmix @midway @gullypremix @salegardensupplies @gunlake @mawsons with more batch plants to come online in the coming months.

A WETTER PERMEABLE CONCRETE IS A BETTER PERMEABLE CONCRETE

DriveCon® SAP is a specially formulated permeable concrete admixture (patent pending) that allows for more water in the mix while preventing paste slippage. With DriveCon® SAP , water/cement ratios can rise to as high as 0.40 allowing for dramatically faster discharge and installation with less effort. Getting your permeable concrete on the ground and covered faster means more moisture in the slab for longer, resulting in less ravelling and call backs. Please note mix designs must be adjusted to work with DriveCon ® SAP.

  • LESS WATER LOSS THROUGH EVAPORATION
  • FASTER DISCHARGE OUT OF THE TRUCK
  • LESS BARREL MAINTENANCE
  • VASTLY REDUCED INSTALLATION EFFORT
  • BETTER CURING UNDER PLASTIC
  • SMOOTHER FLATTER FINISH
DriveCon® SloSet is a ready-to-use liquid solution of chemical compounds specifically designed to be used in Portland cement concretes. The ingredients are pre-mixed in exact proportions under a strict quality control environment to provide uniform results. One litre weighs approximately 1.15kg ± 0.02kg. DriveCon® SloSet is a specifically engineered admixture to be used when batching the DriveCon® permeable concrete product to stabilise cement hydration. Stabilising with SloSet allows for extended concrete life for transportation and installation times. DriveCon® SloSet should only be used in conjunction with DriveCon® SAP when batching permeable concrete.
