Thanks to its structural versatility, workability, processability, and simple engineering, concrete is a building material for almost any project requirement.
The basic concept for processing this material is simple and it is nature that provides all ingredients: cement from limestone and clay, sand, gravel or crushed stone, and finally water.
Not all concretes, however are the same - it's the mix that counts. By selecting the basic materials and the ratios in which they are mixed, the properties of concrete can be perfectly adapted to individual tasks and requirements. Whether it is heavyweight or lightweight, heat insulating, moisture balancing or waterproof, concrete depending on its composition, will always meet individual requirements or even the most challenging demands.
A remarkable degree of flexibility and high demands on its capacities and performance make concrete nearly universally applicable and indispensable for modern and future-oriented construction. And even when it comes to technical and cost aspects, this economical building material is a convincing choice to make, this especially so, when immediately processable readymix concrete is used that can readily be filled into fromwork upon arrival at the construction site.
CONVINCING ARGUMENTS SPEAKING FOR READYMIX CONCRETE
- SAVE CONSTRUCTION QUALITY
Laboratory checked manufacture in a concrete production facility makes sure that quality levels stay the same at all times, from the first to the last casting job.
- ECONOMICAL CONSTRUCTION METHODS
On account of chiefly regional raw materials used and manufacture in closely located concrete production facilities, readymix concrete is a vey economical building material. The material is delivered to the construction site ready-to-use to be placed into a formwork right after arrival. This ensures a time and cost saving way of getting the job done.
- INSULATION INCLUDED
Massive concrete structures offer excellent soundproofness. In addition, the material boasts ideal thermal insulation and heat storage properties.
- NO MOISTURE
In interior spaces and even wet rooms, the permeable material concrete with its moisture balancing characteristics will ensure a pleasant indoor climate. When waterproof concrete is used, on the other hand, for example in the case of foundations, permanent protection against moisture and wetness can be ensured.
- EXCELLENT FIRE PROTECTION
Concrete components are not flammable. Due to their high resistance against fire, the collapse of load-bearing concrete structures is prevented even in the case of extremely high temperatures.
- ADDITIONAL LIVING SPACE
Compared to conventional masonry structures, the favourable physical and engineering characteristics of concrete allow for thinner walls. That is to say, leaner concrete structures provide more living space.
- FREEDOM FOR IDEAS
Concrete allows for a multitude of shapes and sizes and unlimited freedom of aesthetic designs for both architects and interior decorators.
- AN ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY BUILDING MATERIAL
Readymix concrete almost entirely consists of natural, regional raw materials. Manufacture in concrete production facilities saves on resources and is energy efficient. Delivery times and transportation distances are short. Unused leftovers and demolished concrete can be recycled.
- SUSTAINABLE BUILDING STRUCTURE
In addition to its many positive characteristics as a building material, concrete is ideal for energy-efficient applications to warrant structures offering a remarkable degree of longevity and sustainability.
