TecCast is a revolutionary cast stone process that produces a superior cast stone product.
The basis of all TecCast products is a high strength mix blended using unique and technically advanced computer controlled batching equipment. All TecCast products are manufactured from a blend of crushed and graded aggregates, cements, waterproofing agents, additives and where required, colouring pigments.
Highly sophisticated computer systems ensure the optimum water/cement ratio so critical in the manufacture of this type of material.
Within forty minutes of casting units are moved directly into state-of-the-art curing chambers where they are subjected to a controlled temperature and relative humidity environment for at least 8 hours.
Regular cube compressive and water absorption testing is carried out by an independent UKAS accredited laboratory. The results are far in excess of the current 25MPa cube crushing strength requirement of BS 1217 and the even more stringent UKCSA Specification of 35MPa.
This revolutionary and high tech manufacturing system has allowed TecCast to become the first and only cast stone production process to be awarded BBA (British Board of Agrément) certification.
TecCast is available in both standard product form or as bespoke items.
