With these instructions anyone can make a concrete block. Combined with our BETONBLOCK© SYSTEM containing all the products and accessories you could possibly need making a concrete block will be child’s play.
Step 1 - Place empty mold on a flat (steel) surface
First, the mold is placed on a flat surface, for example a steel plate.
Step 2 - Applying oil to the inside of the mold
Mold oil (release agent) must be applied to the inside of the mold in order to facilitate removal of the block.
Step 3 - Pouring the concrete
The concrete is poured gradually to ensure a proper filling of all the nooks and crannies.
Step 4 - Compacting
Alongside the pouring of the concrete the fresh concrete has to be compacted. This is achieved by using an immersion vibrator during the pouring process.
Step 5 - Levelling
After the mould has been filled the concrete is smoothened with a trowel. Curing time is dependent on the concrete and external conditions.
Step 6 - Removing pins and wedges
Step 7 - Open the mold
Ready! Give yourself a pat on the back!
