Concrete

Concrete is one of the world’s most popular building materials. Concrete is a versatile and strong material that can last lifetimes. We work hard to produce a specified product while meeting the high standards of our customers and the industry demand. Trust us to help work with you to build a strong foundation.

Concrete comes from the Latin word “Concretus” which when translated means to ‘grow together’. There are structures around the world still standing from over 5,000 years ago. The uses are infinite and over time the product has evolved and adapted to accommodate both simple and complex applications. In addition, the use of more advanced testing measures, the addition of high-performance admixtures, coloring agents, and overall growth in the science and education of the product have contributed to the popularity of the material.

The science behind the mix designs is only part of the equation. Our Customer Service team uses logistics alongside dispatch and is able to look at the whole picture to optimize delivery and improve our efficiency. Our trucks are outfitted with a state-of-the-art Brigade 360-degree camera monitor system, Trimble’s turn by turn navigation which enables communication with our Dispatch team, and we now have MOBILEjobsite to give our customers insight into their jobs with real-time data. We employ expert mechanics who work hard to keep the trucks ready to roll safely.

Admixtures

Accelerators

Used to increase the rate of early strength development or lessen the time of setting, or both.

Water Reducers

Water-reducing and set-controlling admixtures represent one of the more important groups of chemical admixtures used in concrete. These admixtures reduce the water requirement of a concrete mixture for a given slump or increase the slump for given water content. Decreasing the water content reduces the water-cement ratio, thereby increasing the resulting concrete’s strength.

Hydration Stabilizers

Hydration stabilizers are advanced set retarders. While conventional set retarders enjoy widespread use to slow concrete set times, on many projects additional set control is needed. Hydration stabilizers are formulated to provide this extended control, ranging from a few hours of delayed set for long haul or delayed placement situations to over 30 hours for large continuous pour projects. Hydration stabilization enhances the efficiency of air entrainers by 10% to 20%.

Fibers

It is ideally suited for concrete applications that require protection from plastic and drying shrinkage, improved durability, increased service life and reduced construction costs. The use of fibers in concrete can reduce the total energy consumption of a construction project and will contribute to sustainable building practices.
