No-Fines By eliminating fines (sand or fine aggregates) from regular concrete, lightweight concrete is composed of just coarse aggregate, cement, and water. No-fines concrete’s benefits, drawbacks, and mix proportions are reviewed. Single-sized coarse aggregate, passing through 20 mm and held at 10 mm, is often employed. Because of some of the benefits it has over traditional concrete, no-fine concrete is becoming more popular. The single-sized aggregates produce an excellent no-fines concrete that, in addition to having big voids and therefore being lightweight, has an aesthetically appealing appearance.

The Benefits of No-Fines Concrete

  • Due to the lack of fine particles, concrete is a lightweight concrete, with a density of roughly 25% to 30% less than regular concrete. As a result, the structure’s self-weight is reduced.
  • It has less drying shrinkage than standard concrete since it does not include sands or fine particles.
  • It has a greater thermal insulating property than regular concrete, making it suitable for exterior wall building.
  • Because it contains no fine particles, the amount of surface area needed for cement application is significantly decreased. As a result, as compared to regular concrete, the amount of cement used per cubic metre is lowered. As a result, it is cost-effective.
  • Because lightweight concrete contains no fine particles, it has no influence on quality owing to coarse aggregate segregation. As a result, it may be dropped from great heights.
  • It may be compacted without the use of concrete vibrators and can be done as simply as tamping with rods.

Frequently Ask Questions

Here are the most common questions asked about No-Fines Concrete. If you have any more questions, please get in touch.

No-fines concrete is a kind of special concrete in which fine aggregates are not used in the mixing process. The use of no-fines concrete in the construction business, particularly in the pavement construction, has become very popular.

No-fines concrete is used primarily for load-bearing cast-in-place exterior walls of single and multistory houses, minor retaining walls, and as a dampproofing subbase material for concrete floors built on grade.
