The Qualibéton brand was established by the Association béton Québec. It promotes the use of quality concrete. The Qualibéton certification ensures that the concrete complies with Canadian legislation and standards. A Qualibéton-certified plant complies with the quality assurance standards from the Bureau de normalisation du Québec.
Backfill concrete (non-shrinking)
This very thin concrete is a self-compacting density-controlled backfill material. No compacting is required to obtain sufficient support capacity. It is used particularly for excavations and roadwork trenches.
Expansive concrete contains a chemical agent that makes it possible to obtain very level surfaces. It is designed for pouring concrete slabs.
This very fluid concrete contains admixtures that preserve its physical characteristics, which prevents it from crumbling, even when in contact with water.
Shotcrete (wet process)
Shotcrete is sprayed at a high speed onto surfaces with no formwork. It is used mainly for mine walls, dams and tunnels.
Self-compacting concrete is very fluid. It compacts on its own under the effect of gravity. It is useful in hard-to-reach places, complex forms, or areas with extensive steel reinforcement.
This concrete is used mainly for concrete slabs and decorative products. Pigments are added to the mix, resulting in concrete that is the colour of your choice.
Fibrous concrete contains synthetic or steel fibres evenly distributed throughout the mixture and is used for a structural reinforcement. The fibres prevent cracking and increase the durability of the concrete.
Light concrete is 25% to 30% lighter than conventional concrete. It is used mainly for thermal and sound insulation in floors and firewalls.
Standard concrete is used mainly for foundations, sidewalks, curbs and floors.
