Under Water Concreting

Placing concrete underwater is a challenging operation due to the logistics of supply, accessibility to the site and poor visibility in the underwater placement area.

Qanbar Ready Mix has successfully supplied concrete underwater overcoming these difficulties with a combination of expertise and equipment.

To successfully complete an underwater concrete pour the choice of mix design and materials used are critical.

Applications will include consideration of the following:

  • Flowability and Self-Compaction
  • Workability Retention within Work Window
  • Cohesion against Washout, Segregation, and Laitance Formation
  • Low Bleed Characteristic
  • Low Heat of Hydration
  • Controlled Set Time
  • Compressive Strength
  • Adequate Bond

We welcome any enquiries for this type of project.
