Concrete Mix FAQs

As with any construction project, it’s important to understand why our concrete materials are essential to any construction project small or large, and we’re always happy to provide advice on the process for your specialist area.  


What is concrete mix design?  

The foundations of any construction project start with a concrete mix design that features a number of suitable ingredients for the task. This includes determining the right quantities so that the concrete has a certain amount of durability, workability and strength, all at the right cost. The importance of this lies in that different projects require set properties to suit the environment and also how quickly the concrete needs to set. That’s why Rock Solid Concrete provides bespoke mixes to ensure optimal performance.  


How do I know what type of concrete is best for my project?  

As well as standard features within a construction environment, there can be other factors to bear in mind when purchasing concrete. This includes the need to increase resistance to freeze-thaw cycles or the desired surface finish depending on your required look and style. Our knowledgeable team at Rock Solid Concrete can discuss all these elements and provide leading guidance on what type of concrete is best depending on your specifications.  


What are the most popular types of admixtures?  

Admixtures help to modify the properties of concrete and improve its performance with accelerators to speed up setting time or retarders to slow down if needed. There are also ways to enhance workability, to boost the durability and strength of concrete mixes.  


Is there such a thing as eco-friendly concrete?

There certainly is. It’s important for construction works to be more sustainable and environmentally friendly, therefore concrete mix designs can include recycled materials such as fly ash or slag to reduce CO2 emissions. There are also ways to use less cement by incorporating eco-friendly admixtures whilst still maintaining a high-quality product. At Rock Solid Concrete we operate with sustainable practices during our concrete mix design and production process as part of our greener construction methodologies and sustainable mission.
