HuberCrete® ground calcium carbonate from Huber Carbonates, LLC greatly
improves precast concrete products through mix workability, consistent
white color and cost without impacting fresh or hardened properties.

HuberCrete is manufactured at ISO 9001 certified plants in three U.S.


locations from single ore sources. Customers can feel confident the
HuberCrete product they choose to incorporate in their mix design will
have the same chemical and physical properties from load to load.
We guarantee it!

Performance and Strength
Extensive testing shows a replacement of either Type I or Type III cements with a HuberCrete®
product has little to no affect on the fresh or hardened properties of precast concrete products.
Huber’s testing at ambient and elevated temperature curing profiles used in precast, performed
equally as the mix design without HuberCrete ground calcium carbonate.

HuberCrete offers improved workability in all types of concrete mixtures, from zero slump to
high spread self-consolidating designs.

While HuberCrete is not pozzolanic, which describes a material that adds strength at a later
curing time, it does offer an advantage for precast products by promoting the cement hydration
reaction at a sub-micron level. The presence of the ground calcium carbonate particles provide
a surface area of calcium that aids in the formation of the cement compounds as the cement
reacts with water. This results in no impact on setting times and better green strength.

Guidance for using ground calcium carbonate can be found in the ACI 211.7R Guide for ‘Propor-
tioning Concrete Mixtures using Ground Limestone and Other Mineral Fillers.’ HuberCrete offers
particle sizes that allow the mix designer to take full advantage of the particle packing effect of
the other materials in the concrete mix.

Precast products needing minimal bug holes should try HuberCrete® Extra Fine ground calcium
carbonate. The particle size offers improved surface finish by contributing a particle smaller than
the typical cement or fly ash particle in the particle packing matrix of the cementitious mixture.
