Techno-Crete – the innovative alternative to concrete postmix

At Scott Parnell we have a number of Network Rail-approved products and solutions which work together to reduce time on site and improve workforce safety.

We are exclusive suppliers of Techno-Crete - the new alternative to postmix concrete products.

Working much like a typical expanding foam, Techno-Crete is a two-part, high-density Hydrophobic Polyurethane foam alternative to the bulky postmix concrete products traditionally used for securing fence posts.


It is derived from sustainably grown and recycled vegetable oils, formulated so it can be mixed without the need for mechanical plant and equipment, dramatically reducing the weight of manual handling from 60kg to 1.6kg.

It works by expanding to twenty times the size of its package volume after mixing and forms a structurally supporting foundation in approximately 10 minutes of pouring. It contains no CFC, HCFC or HFC blowing agents and has a shelf life of up to one year.

Its key benefits:

  • No requirement for aggregates or water
  • Low transport and placement costs
  • Hydrophobic – repels water from soil surface, reducing the risk of soil softening
  • Expands to fill voids, creating clean and uniform contact with base and side foundations
  • Reduced risk of personal injury from manual handling
  • Excellent performance levels – tested under load Techno-Crete was proven to be equal to or better than traditional postmix concrete foundations
  • Independently verified by chartered geotechnical and structural consulting engineers
  • A design life of 30 years

Techno-Crete can be used to secure:
