Concrete can be mixed in a number of different ways, depending on the application and environmental factors. Selecting the right mix is critical to the success of any construction project. King Concrete mix and supply a wide range of concretes of different strengths and grades, covering all application types.
Whilst most concrete is mixed use the same core materials (cement, water and aggregate – commonly sand and stone) in differing ratios. Some types of concrete require the addition of materials or chemical additives, namely:
- Fibres: Increase strength, reduce cracking/shrinkage.
- Plasticisers: Improve workability and flow.
- Retardants: Slow setting rate.
- Accelerants: Speed up setting rate.
- Corrosion Inhibitors: – Reduce steel rebar corrosion.
