  • "Active Minerals have provided a solution to our industry that’s been well overdue, Acti-Gel has innovated piling concrete performance by improving the workability and stability of concrete supplied to our D-Walls and bored piers - but also for CFA piles where plunging of reinforcement cages to great depths is not possible. Their customer support is excellent and their advice on mix design improvements and general support has been well received over the years.”
