Oxacrete® Nossim allows clay-based concrete to be poured at a low water content and to gain enough early-age strength to remove the formwork, without the use of cement. The addition of 3 – 6 wt% of the admixture Oxacrete® Nossim results in a compressive strength > 2 MPa, and to a fast early-age strength development. It is thus recommended for applications where formworks have to be removed fast, or where cast elements are tall.
Oxara technology based Cleancrete is a sustainable and resource-saving alternative to cement-based concrete, in applications where high compressive strength is not required. It is made with excavation material that contains a certain clay proportion and a smooth grading curve of sand and gravel. Also called poured earth, it can be prepared and implemented on-site using conventional equipment of the concrete industry.
Oxacrete® Nossim is a blend of mineral powders developed by Oxara AG in Switzerland. It consists of a dispersant and a coagulant. The dispersant allows to deflocculate and re-arrange clay particles in the earth while the coagulant allows the agglomeration and the hardening of the clayey materials through a pozzolanic process.
