Concrete Mix

Typically the concrete is specified as a C25 pumpable mix of slump class S3 (target slump 190mm) with aggregate size 10mm.

A 20mm aggregate can be used but 10mm is preferred as it is easier to pump and place.

Chopped fibres can be used in the mix to improve the tensile strength of the concrete and as an anti-crack measure, dispensing with the need for a reinforcing mesh. The manufacturer will provide guidance as to the mix design.
