Frequently Asked Questions
1. 1.What is Metconete?
Metconete is a processed Metallic Composition specially manufactured in a size graded particles to provide greater density, strength & abrasive resistance.
It is manufactured by mixing with cement & grit (stone chips) to provide 2 times to 4 times Extra hardness without affecting the chemistry of the cement.
2. Why Metconete?
- High Abrasion Resistance
- Floor Hardener
- Cost Saving (Depending on User Choice)
- Skid Proof
- Long Life
3. 3. What is the form of Metconete?
It is specially processed SIZE GRADED PARTICLES
4. Does it have Rusting problem?
If exposed to moisture for long time then it will catch rusting, but once mixed with water and cement, it won’t have rusting effect.
5. What is the Application?
To lay a Metconete Mix (Metconete + Concrete) of prescribed ratio on Green Concrete Base. Application Process chart will be available on Request.
6. Can Metconete be mixed directly during concrete mixing?
Yes. Very experienced contractors and civil engineers have appreciated the use of Metconete during concrete mixing. During concrete mixing, ratio of Metconete is based on Cement and usage of the floor/road.
7. What is the colour of the floor obtained when Metconete is used?
Colour of the surface will be grey same as of cement concrete but surface will be homogeneous and smoother
8. 8.What kind of surface is resulted?
Homogeneous Smooth and Hard Metallic Surface of greater density and strength.
9. Is the surface skid resistant?
10. Is Reinforcement bars necessary if directly mixed during concrete mixing?
Metconete won’t completely replace reinforcement bars but it will definitely result in some material savings. (Depending on how much load encountered on Floor).
11. What is a Water to Cement ratio?
To make surface hard W: C ratio is to be kept minimum, ideally 0.38: 0.42.
