Some of the reasons behind the popularity of ready mix concrete

February, 07 2024

Ready-mix concrete has significantly enhanced the efficiency of construction projects. As they do not require time for preparation, construction can progress with minimal delays. However, there are various other reasons for the popularity of ready-mix concrete. Here, we share some of the reasons that have made ready-mix concrete such a popular product in the market.

  1. Consistent quality:

Ready-mix concrete is manufactured in highly controlled environments using high-quality materials. This ensures far superior consistency compared to concrete mixed on-site. In on-site mixtures, material proportions can vary, leading to inconsistencies. Also, environmental conditions can adversely affect the quality of on-site mixed concrete, unlike ready-mix varieties.

  1. Time efficiency:

One of the most significant benefits of ready-mix concrete is its time-saving aspect during construction. Workers are not required to mix the compound on-site since it arrives premixed and ready for use. This can significantly reduce the time needed to complete a project and lower labour costs.

  1. Reduced labour: 

The use of ready-mix concrete reduces the necessity for a large workforce, along with associated labour costs. A small team of builders can efficiently manage the application of the concrete. Furthermore, there is no need for additional space to store raw materials for on-site concrete production.

  1. Customisation:

Ready-mix concrete offers extensive customisation opportunities. Various materials can be added to adjust its properties as needed. For instance, additives can be used to accelerate curing times or enhance the strength of the concrete mixture. Some customisations can also improve the workability of ready-mix concrete.

  1. Environment friendly:

On-site concrete mixing can lead to significant resource wastage and air pollution. In contrast, ready-mix concrete is prepared in controlled settings, using precise measurements for the raw materials, thereby minimising resource wastage. Its use at construction sites also helps to reduce air and noise pollution.

  1. Increased versatility:

Ready-mix concrete is versatile and suitable for a wide range of projects, including the construction of home foundations, buildings, bridges, and more.

  1. Quality testing:

Manufacturers of ready-mix concrete adhere to stringent regulations and conduct extensive quality testing. This ensures that their products provide the necessary strength and durability to structures, prolonging their lifespan and reducing the need for costly repairs.
