Concrete Mix Design

CONCRETE MIX DESIGN

Concrete is a combination of several ingredients, proper selection of each material makes a better concrete. Proper percentage and right ratio are key factors for approved Concerete Mix Design.

Durability, Strength, Workability, Workability Consistency, Placeability, Pumpability are to be considered while designing.


S/N Constituents Details
1 AGGREGATES ALL IN AGGREGATES (COARSE AND FINE )
2 CEMENT OPC / SRC / MSRC / RHPC / LHPC
3 WATER POTABLE
4 ADMIXTURES RETARDERS / SUPER PLASTICISERS / ANTI WASH OUT ADMIXTURE
5 ARABIAN MICROSILICA DENSIFIED / UNDENSIFIED / WHITE COLOUR
6 ARABIAN FLY ASH CLASS F
7 GGBS
8 ARABIAN FIBERS PP / STEEL / SYNTHETIC / FIBRILLATED



Why TENDER STAGE is so important?

When properly incorporated into the concrete mix, Arabian Microsilica will help to reduce column size / slab thickness / concrete quantity, thus reducing significant quantities of steel, aggregates, cement, admixtures, water, manpower, machinery etc. This will help to complete the project faster and to reduce the total cost of projects, while increasing the maintenance free service life of prestigious projects.



Case study shows the net savings on a particular tower project (3000 t of rebar and 7650 m3 of concrete was saved). Similar savings have been recorded on a number of different projects around the world - including shotcrete work, bridges and parking units.
