Concrete Mix Design

Concrete mix design is the process of finding right proportions of water, cement, sand, course aggregates, and chemical additives for concrete to achieve a target strength. Solidbase has the expertise to carry out this task.

Concrete mix design involves various steps, calculations and laboratory testing to find the optimum mix proportions. It is important for a concrete mix to have the correct proportions. A concrete trial mix will verify the strength, workability, density, and other properties of a proposed concrete mix. Trial mixes are often undertaken when new materials or admixtures are to be used or as and when requested for approval by a client. Trials are also undertaken when setting up batch data. They are important for mix optimization and economical production of concrete.

Our approach takes into consideration the unique challenges that are posed by the local construction industry, local seasonal weather changes, and use of local aggregates.

Our operatives sample and test all raw materials. The results of which are punched into our in-house developed software which proposes a mix design. Our trained and experienced laboratory technicians carry out the trials. Resultant cube samples are tested at the prescribed age.
