Returned Concrete with Zero Impact

MAPEI has developed Re-Con Zero Evo, a powder product used to recover all “returned concrete” with zero impact on the environment and zero investment required for reclaiming plants.

Made from special polymers and inorganic composites according to a MAPEI formula, Re-Con Zero Evo allows concrete returned to mixing plants to be completely and quickly recovered directly from mixer trucks. It transforms returned concrete into an aggregate that, once cured, may be used as a partial replacement of natural aggregates to produce concrete or a partial or total replacement of natural aggregates for fill or road bases. » Watch video
