Material Recommendations for Concrete

… GRC, Terrazzo, UHPC and other concrete based products…

This chapter offers free of charge Material Recommendations for “Cement based” materials and fixing optimisation.

Given values refer to AVG-Average Values or LEV-Lower Expected Values.

AVG – Average Value is a sum of all test results divided by number of tests.
LEV – Lower Expected Value  is a minimal breaking force for 95% of test results given by confidence level of 75% (based on ETAG 034).
Newest test results and optimisations you can see on Blick’s Vimeo Material Recommendations album
and Blick’s YouTube Playlist: Material Recommendation.

Note: Blick offers Project Recommendation and structural calculations, in which proper values are calculated and are proven by approved structural designer adequate for particular project.
Presented results are for presentation purposes only. Please contact Blick in case of use. Blick does not bears any resposibility for improper use or calculations made based on below data without previous written acceptance.
