How does our operation differ from the standard ready-mix delivery?
Why is fresh concrete a superior product vs. ready-mix concrete?
Concrete is a combination of inert materials (sand and rock) and a paste composed of cement and water. The materials change from a semi-liquid substance into a solid binder as a result of chemical reactions between water and various compounds in the cement. This process begins immediately after the mixing of all ingredients.
- Ready-mix concrete is mixed together at a batch plant and transported by truck in a rotating drum to the job site, therefore, the curing process is already underway during travel time. This minimizes the time available for finishing, and in some cases, requires the addition of extra water to maintain concrete with enough fluidity for pouring, which reduces its strength.
- Because Black Horn Concrete is mixed right at the job site, your concrete is ALWAYS FRESH. It also has a more plastic texture for superior workability and allows you the maximum finishing time. Unlike ready-mix, there is no need to add extra water to keep it fluid, assuring you the correct strength your job requires.
