It is a heterogeneous mass composed of aggregates (rocks of specific sizes), cement, water, air and sometimes additives.
When concrete is fresh can be given any shape and ones it gets the hardening, it has the characteristics to be durable over time and to resist mechanical stress and compression.
The specific types of concrete you'll find below are conventional (normal, pumpable, plastic and fluid).
Concrete that allow good handling, easy installation and certified quality.
Pumping, fluid and normal concrete are the conventional you'll find below.
Normal: A mixture of cement, sand, aggregate, water and additive, as fresh offers good handling time and excellent cohesiveness (ability to paste or attach) when it is set, features that make it ideal for construction.
It is used in structural elements such as shallow foundations, beams and columns of conventional structures, plates between floors, curbs and sidewalks.
This concrete is designed, dosing and mixing in plant and is transported under conditions that maintain product quality (keep cool) to get specifications of a particular certificate.
Pumping. It is concrete that provides excellent handling and is especially cohesive, allowing placement through concrete pump (special machinery for this purpose).
This type is used in concrete structures projects with difficult access and limited space, with considerable horizontal and vertical distances, or any kind of structural elements that require speed and efficiency to be melted, taking into account access requirements and large volume.
Fluid. Concrete that makes easier the placement and reduces the needs of vibration (to extend the product) giving excellent compaction and finishing.
This concrete dosed and mixed in the plant is designed to flow with minimal effort into forms (molds) that pose difficulties for the amount of steel included or because the space where it will drain the product is very small. It is also used for slender elements or inaccessible sites landfills in masonry (brick or block union). It is also ideal to be emptied with a pump in high-rise sites.
The facility to handle the product is due to a proper combination of cement, chemical additives and particle size control (grain size) gravel (rock) and sand, obtaining a fluid mixing, firm.
