SHOTCRETE

Proven Strength Under Tight Deadlines

Shotcrete’s high strength makes it ideal for fast resumption of operations throughout the mine. Lafarge takes wet shotcrete application to the next level. We produce and test quality shotcrete mixes to ensure optimal product performance. We’ve partnered with mine owners for over 20 years to safely deliver wet shotcrete. It can significantly reduce costs and labour compared to dry shotcrete while improving safety and site conditions.

HEAD FRAMES

Consistent Materials to Build a Key Asset

 

Lafarge has the expertise to help design and construct concrete head frames. Concrete is often the best option to build head frames as it is stable under mechanical vibrations. Unlike steel structures, concrete head frames do not Corrode. We have helped build slip form head frames at mines across Canada, around the clock, with a continuous and consistent supply of concrete.
