Types of Ready-Mix Concrete

CEMEX has a wide range of products and services, including technical support for its different types of ready-mix concrete. Below are a few examples of ready-mix concrete technologies with special properties and performance

Standard Ready-Mix Concrete

Standard ready-mix concrete is the most common form of concrete. It is prepared for delivery at a concrete plant instead of mixed on the construction site, which guarantees the quality of the concrete.


Architectural and Decorative Concrete

This type of concrete can provide a structural function, as well as an aesthetic or decorative finish. It can offer smooth or rough surfaces or textures, as well as a variety or range of colours.


Rapid-setting Concrete

Designed to enhance early strength development, this concrete allows fast formwork removal, accelerated construction sequencing, and rapid repair for such jobs as roads and airport runways. Typically used in low temperature (5-10°C) concreting during winter, this concrete can also be used in buildings, railways, and precast applications. In addition to saving time, this concrete technology offers improved durability and acid resistance. » More


Fibre-reinforced Concrete

Concrete designed with micro or macro fibres can be used either for structural applications, where the fibres can potentially substitute for steel rebar reinforcement, or for reducing shrinkage—primarily early age shrinkage. Macro fibres can significantly increase the ductility of concrete, making it highly resistant to crack formation and propagation. » More


Fluid-fill Concrete

Fluid mortar or concrete simplifies the process of laying pipe and cable by surrounding the pipe or cable with a tightly packed shell that provides protection from the elements, prevents settling, and enables crews to work quickly.


Roller-compacted Concrete

Compacted in place and cured, roller-compacted concrete is a zero slump concrete with the abrasion resistance to withstand high velocity water—making it the material of choice for spillways and other infrastructure subject to high flow conditions. It represents a competitive solution in terms of cost and durability when compared to asphalt. » More


Self Compacting Concrete (SCC)

SCC has very high flow; therefore, it is self-leveling, eliminating the need for vibration. Due to the superplasiticizers used—chemical admixtures that impart very high flow—SCC exhibits very high compaction as a result of its low air content. Consequently, SCC can have very high strengths, exceeding 50 MPa. » More


Pervious / Permeable Concrete

Because of its unique design mix, pervious concrete is a highly porous material that allows water, particularly rainwater, to filter through, reduces flooding and heat concentration by up to 4°C, and helps to prevent skidding on wet roads. This concrete is ideally used in car parks, footpaths, and swimming pool border applications.

Benefits of Roller Compacted Concrete

In terms of construction costs, RCC is typically equal to or as much as 20% lower than asphalt, depending on the project. Additionally, the life cycle costs of RCC when compared to asphalt are about 30% lower.  View
