Materials

Concrete / Precast Concrete

Concrete / Precast Concrete is a mixture of cement, aggregates and mineral colors and is reinforced with steel.

  1. Cement shall be Portland Cement conforming to ASTM C-150Types I,II or III.
  2. Integral color, shall be pure mineral oxide, limeproof and nonfading.
  3. Aggregates for concrete shall conform to the ASTM C-33 with a maximum size of 3/4 inch.
  4. Reinforcing steel shall conform to ASTM 615 and deformations shall conform to ASTM M-305
  5. Quality; Minimum strength of 5,000psi at age 28 days, as determined by tests of 6-inch and 12-inch cylinders. Absorption shall not exceed 5 percent.

GFRC

GFRC (glass fiber reinforced concrete) is a lightweight Concrete where cement, fine aggregates and glass fibers are combined to provide the Concrete look with about 1/3 the weight.

Glascrete™

Glascrete™ is a simulated Concrete where polyester resin, fine aggregates and glass fibers are combined to provide the Concrete look with about 1/5 the weight. Glascrete has high impact resistance, and damage due to impact is usually confined to the area of impact without propagation of cracks. Compressive strength exceeds that of Concrete.

Concrete can be used for most projects. Glascrete™ is for recommended when weight and/or access are factors.

Coatings & Surfaces

Surfaces are cast against appropriate mold materials to achieve desired finishes. Color selection can be made from either Scofield or Davis color charts, or from the colors shown. Applied or Glaze finishes are available at an up charge.

Sealers

All planters without drain holes are automatically sealed on the inside with a black or gray elastomeric membrane unless otherwise specified. Anti-graffiti, semigloss or gloss (Glaze) sealers meet the moisture retention requirements of ASTM C-309 when tested in accordance with ASTM C-156 and all federal and state solvent emissions standards including California Air Regulation Board requirements.
