Where Can You Use RMC?
Ready-mix concrete, or RMC as it is also known, refers to concrete that is specifically manufactured for customers to their construction projects, and supplied to the customer on site as a single product. It is a mixture of cement, water and aggregates: sand, gravel, or crushed stone.
All aggregates should be of a washed type material with limited amounts of fines or dirt and clay. An admixture is also added to improve work-ability of the concrete and/or increase setting time of concrete (using retarders) to factor in the time required for the transit mixer to reach the site.
Ready mixed concrete-RMC is used in construction projects where the construction site is not willing, or unable, to mix concrete on site. Using ready-mixed concrete means product is delivered finished, on demand, in the specific quantity required, in the specific mix design required.
For a small to medium project, the cost and time of hiring mixing equipment, labor, plus purchase and storage for the ingredients of concrete, added to environmental concerns, may simply be not worthwhile when compared to the cost of ready-mixed concrete, where the customer pays for what they use, and allows others do the work up to that point.
For a large project, outsourcing concrete production to ready-mixed concrete suppliers means delegating the quality control and testing, material logistics and supply chain issues and mix design, to specialists who are already established for those tasks, trading off against introducing another contracted external supplier who needs to make a profit, and losing the control and immediacy of on-site mixing.
How Much Ready Mix Concrete Or RMC Do You Need?
Every project has specific Ready mix concrete or RMC requirements. That’s why this is sold by volume, normally expressed in cubic meters. The architect and builders will estimate the amount of Ready mix concrete needed, which is very important, otherwise there can be other expenses connected with it.
An important aspect to keep in mind is that the performance of RMC can be altered with the use of admixtures.
For example, you can entrain air within the mixture, lower the water requirements, add PPP fibres to boost durability or you can even super-plasticize the concrete. This process will make it self-consolidate and self-level.
This type of requirements can be fulfilled by the concrete manufacturer. Not all manufacturers work with admixtures, but they are becoming increasingly common in a variety of different industries.
