Concrete Mixes, Aggregates, And Admixes

Hydraulic drilling machine

Auger Cast Mix

Auger cast pile are a type of drill foundation in which the pile is drilled to the final depth in one continuous process using a continuous flight auger.

Flowable Fill Mix

Flowable Fill Mix

Flowable fill refers to a cementitious slurry consisting in a mixture of fine aggregate or filler, water, and cementitious material(s).

Grout Mix

Grout is generally a mixture of water, cement, and sand. Its employed in pressure grounding, embedding rebar in masonry walls, connecting section of pre-cast concrete, filling voids, and sealing joints as those between tiles.

Performance Mixes

High-performance concrete mixes are produced by careful selection and proportioning of its constituents namely cement, sand, gravel, cementitious materials such as fly ash; silica fume; and slag. Also chemical admixtures for instance high range water reducing admixtures.

High early mixes

High Early Strength Mix

High early strength concrete is one of the type in high performance concrete. A high early strength concrete means that the compressive strength of the concrete at the first 24 hours after site-pouring could achieve structural concrete quality(compressive strength > 21 MPA).

Gravel Aggregate

Gravel Aggregate

Gravel is (uncountable) small fragments of rock, used for laying on the beds of roads and railroads, and as ballast while aggregate is a mass, assemblage, or sum of particulars; something consisting of elements but considered as a whole.

Lightweight Aggregate

Lightweight Aggregate

Lightweight aggregate is a type of coarse aggregate that is used in the production of lightweight concrete products such as concrete block, structural concrete, and pavement.

Limestone Aggregate

Limestone Aggregate

Limestone aggregate is used as a rock filler concrete slabs that form the foundation for the homes, businesses, utilities, bridges, and almost every other type of infrastructure. Large grades of limestone can used as riprap along river/stream/drainage/road edges to prevent erosion and other forms of aggregate.

Pea Gravel

Pea Gravel Aggregate

Mixing pea gravel or any other type of rock into concrete is a technique known as creating exposed aggregate. Quite simply, this means that when the concrete is dry, the pea gravel is exposed at the surface, thus creating a texture.

Plasticizers & super-plasticizers: helping concrete go with the flow – Putzmeister

“Super Punchers” (Midrange and Highrange plasticizers)

High range water reducers, are additives used in making high strength concrete. Plasticizers are chemical compounds that enable the production of concrete with approximately 15% less water content. Plasticizers and superplasticizers retard the curing of concrete.


Retarders and Accelerators

Concrete set accelerating and retarding admixtures allow concrete producers to modify the setting time of concrete according to their specific project needs.

Monofilament and Structural Fibers

Monofilament is a single filament of synthetic fiber. Monofilament is made by melting and mixing polymers.
