Tremix: High-Performance Concrete Pavement or Flooring Work.

  Tremix: High-Performance Concrete Pavement or Flooring Work. Tremix is also called vacuum dewater flooring or simply (VDF) through a vacuum. Dewatering process surplus water from the concrete is removed immediately after placing and vibration of concrete. The process of suction of water reduces the water-cement ratio to the optimum level, by reducing the water-cement ratio, especially at…
