For some time now we have been working on the solution of a problem that is becoming more and more frequent when we make roads, paths and parking lots: the permeability of surfaces.
Specifically, when we are faced with pavements and at the same time we must respect the proportions between permeable surface and territorial surface (Urban planning and building regulation) we are no longer able to use the classic pavements (layer type in bituminous conglomerate).
In this sense, we have directed the experiments of our Research and Development Department towards the search for a product, the Rainconcrete, which meets the permeability requirements with consequent flow of water into the soil and with an eye always turned to the final aesthetics of the work.
The main characteristics of Rainconcrete, first studied in our Research and Development Department and subsequently applied on site are the following:
- Percentage of voids between 15% and 25%
- Drainage capacity between a minimum of 300 lt / m2 / min and a maximum of 1300 lit / m2 / min
- Compressive strength measured at 28 days of maturation ≥ 10 MPa
- Flexural strength ≥ 1.5 MPa
The properties listed above make it the ideal material for the construction of pavements, parking and parking areas, cycle and pedestrian paths, areas with mixed users and “zone 30” and roads in an environmental protection area.
The Raincocnrete can be made in natural gray colour, pigmented (yellow, orange, red, brown, green …) or painted on the surface.
