Mix Designs


  When most contractors think about mix design-if they think about it at all-the first thing that comes to mind is "bags" or "sacks." In the old days, when most concrete was mixed on site, cement was purchased in bags. A bag is 94 pounds of cement-about 1 cubic foot. But if you order a 6-sack mix, all that tells you is how much portland cement is in the mix. That mix could be completely wrong for your application and could even be inferior concrete. What slump do you need? What strength? Do you need entrained air? What happens if the day is particularly cold or hot? What size of aggregate is best? Should you ask for fly ash in the mix?

Qatar Beton produces a wide variety of mix designs for different construction needs and conditions, as well as specialty concrete products. Mix designs are prepared in accordance with international standards by our in-house laboratory staff. Custom mix designs can also be developed based on customer requirements.
