Overview
 
Description :
Paving Blocks used for external floors are in great demand in modern building owing to their beauty, durability and economy. Paving blocks floors can be made in any design or shape desired. Its most popular because of the unlimited variety of pleasing patterns and colored schemes. Paving blocks are increasingly used not only in walks ways & jogging tracks but also in entire building compounds, storage yards, petrol stations, swimming pool decks, parking lots and other landscaping areas. Highly wear-resistant in nature, the life of the blocks is much more than the ordinary P.C.C done in the external areas.
 
Raw Materials :

The blocks are made in both single and double layers to endure both beauty and strength of the product.

  • Top layer consists of cement, marble powder, coarse powder, and amery powder for equivalent abrasion resistant materials & required pigments for color.
  • The bottom layer consists of cement, sand & coarse aggregate of required mix. [The mix is decided as per the required specification]
 
Manufacturing Process :
The raw materials are mixed seperately in required proportion in mixers and ball mills and filled into hoppers of the paving block machine. The block is cast automatically with vibration and compaction of 2000 psi/sq.inch as per the design of the moulds. the blocks are then put into curing chambers and are ready for dispatch after 24 hrs of staem curing.
 
Capacity :
Our company has got current capacity of manufacturing more than 15,000 no.s of blocks per day, per shift.
 
Layering Process :

a) Rubble Soiling : is required to be done on areas where the soil is loose and has a tendencyto sink during monsoons. This is specially required where vehicles are going to ply, thus to avoid any sinking of the area. the border should be fixed to prevent the blocks from shifting and getting loosened

 

 

 

b) Bedding Materials : the bedding materials consists of pure sand duly compacted with a surface vibrator(Compactor). This layer should be not less than 2" to provide sufficient cushion to the blocks.

 

 

 

c) Layering of Blocks : The blocks can be directly palced on this bedding layer prepared. The blocks should be placed very close to each other to avoid any shifting. This special care has to be taken because the joints are not filled with cement.

 

 

 

d) Compaction : The surface compactor is again plied on the blocks laid with a little sand rolled over it. This process helps the sand to fill any voids or air blocks in the joints if the blocks are laid. This process also helps to level any uneven laying of blocks.

 

 

e) Cleaning : The floor laid now needs proper cleaning of unused sand on it and is ready for use.
