  • The cement content must be correct and the water : cement ratio as low as possible consistent with satisfactory placing, thorough compaction and effective curing.
  • The final finish quality of this material will depend upon the operative having the required skills and a familiarisation with the materials and its application methods.

  • Snowcrete is manufactured from natural products, and slight shade variations may occur. Snowcrete will also have shade variations from differing manufacturing centres.

Storage & Shelf life

Snowcrete is naturally low in Soluble Chromium VI so there is no use by date. Snowcrete should be stored indoors, in dry conditions clear of the ground. In the UK we suggest after six months from the packing date printed on the bag, bags should be checked. If Snowcrete contains hard lumps of hydrated cement it should not be used. Please see our material safety datasheet for more information.
