Allied Products - AllFlow

ALLFLOW

AllFlow is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that easily spreads into place, fills formwork, and encapsulates even the most congested reinforcement –it’s placed purely by means of its own weight, with little or no mechanical vibration.

AllFlow provides these benefits while maintaining all of concrete's customary mechanical and durability characteristics. Significant research has led to the development of a robust flowable concrete that meets challenging performance requirements.

Allied Ready Mix Concrete specializes in AllFlow concrete for placement as a topping over radiant floor heating.

  • Interior and exterior floors

BENEFITS:

RESOURCES:

Concrete is manufactured from natural materials. Color variation can occur as a result of variations in raw materials, environmental conditions and finishing techniques. Customers should be aware that these variations can occur, especially where aesthetics are of importance to the customer.

     

ConCreate®: Exposed Aggregate

ConCreate®: Exposed Aggregate  

ConCreate®: Exposed Aggregate utilizes a 10mm round Chilliwack River aggregate. At the end of the finishing process, the surface of concrete is washed to expose the stone on the surface of the concrete. ConCreate®: Colored may also be added to the concrete to enhance the appearance of your concrete.

IDEAL FOR:

  • Driveways
  • Sidewalks
  • Patios

BENEFITS:

  • Improves aesthetics versus traditional concrete mixes
  •  Compatible with the ConCreate®: Colored series
CONCREATE®: STAMPED

ConCreate®: Stamped

ConCreate®: Stamped mixes are used in the process of adding texture and color to make concrete resemble stone, brick, slate, cobblestone, barn-board and many other products. Stamped concrete gives you the flexibility to design an interesting and great looking project with all of the durability benefits of concrete built right in.

IDEAL FOR:

  • Pool decks
  • Driveways
  • Patios and walkways
  • Interior floors
  • Gardens and landscape

BENEFITS:

  • Unlimited creative design capabilities
  • Improved aesthetics
  • Compatible with the ConCreate®: Colored series
  • Conforms to an unlimited variety of shapes and surface textures including the traditional look of slate, tile, brick and cobblestone
Stamped concrete is created by compressing the top surface of concrete to inlay a design or pattern. As a result of this compression, the top layer of concrete has a lower air content and is subject to a higher risk of freeze-thaw damage.

Allied Ready Mix Concrete guarantees that the supplied concrete will meet the specified properties in accordance with current CSA guidelines.

Allied is not responsible for freeze-thaw damage as a result of the installation process including the top layer of stamped concrete.

DRAINSTONE

Drainstone

DrainStone is a pervious concrete designed to allow water to flow through to base materials. This is an aesthetically pleasing, highly functional and environmentally friendly option for a variety of pathways and parking areas.

An open-cell concrete with a range of 15% to 25% voids allows for a flow rate of 120 – 320 L/m2 per minute. When rainwater naturally filters into the soil, storm water collection systems can be reduced or eliminated.

DrainStone uses a 6.0mm aggregate to provide a smoother surface profile while maintaining good aggregate interlock for improved durability.

IDEAL FOR:

  • Pedestrian walkways
  • Driveways
  • Parking areas

BENEFITS:

  • Reduces quantity and contamination of storm water runoff
  • Reduces, and sometimes eliminates, the cost of storm water management systems
  • Reduces surface temperature and heat island effect
  • Decreases lighting requirements
    • Pervious concrete: albedo surface reflectivity index (0.35+)
    • Asphalt: albedo surface reflectivity index (0.04 – 0.12)
  • Qualifies for LEED credits (SS 6.1)
FLOWCRETE
