CHRONOLIA The versatile concrete solution from Lafarge
Chronolia™ ready mixed concrete is another technological breakthrough from the Lafarge Group, a world leader in building materials. It is the fruit of five years of extremely advanced research in nanotechnologies, focused on understanding the clear need from customers to control their construction schedules and to be able to work as rapidly as possible. Chronolia™ has already achieved considerable success on various construction projects in the USA, Canada, Europe and, more recently, South Africa.
The local presence of the Group, Lafarge South Africa, and established leader in readymix innovation, recently introduced ChronoliaTM technology to the local construction market. As its name suggests, ChronoliaTM is about time: about saving a remarkable amount of time for contractors. The product’s ability to quickly develop high strength means that formwork can be removed considerably faster than for standard concrete, allowing twice as many daily formwork cycles.
ChronoliaTM is an example of Lafarge’s commitment to use its unparalleled technical strength to contribute products and solutions for Building better cities: cities that are more compact, have more housing, are more durable and better connected, while being more beautiful and desirable places for everyone to live in.
The key advantage of ChronoliaTM is that it allows much more flexibility in construction planning because the schedule is no longer governed by the formwork. Its use can double the daily rotation of formwork for walls, precast elements, columns and beams, while accelerating the loading of load-bearing concrete elements! It enables a fresh approach to the traditional organisation of a building site to achieve a more efficient work flow.
