PRESCRIPTION CONCRETE

THE READY-MIXED CONCRETE INDUSTRY THROUGH ITS EXPERIENCED STAFF AND SOPHISTICATED WEIGHING, BATCHING AND MIXING EQUIPMENT CAN FURNISH CONCRETE OVER A WIDE RANGE OF SPECIFICATIONS. VARIATIONS IN CEMENT, ADMIXTURES AND AGGREGATES ADD TO THE DIFFICULTY OF PRODUCING PRESCRIPTION CONCRETE. COMPLAINTS ARE RECEIVED ON LESS THAN 0.01 PERCENT OF THE VOLUME OF CONCRETE PRODUCED. THE COMPLAINTS RESULT FROM CEMENT QUALITY, CONCRETE STRENGTHS, OVERDOSAGE OF ADMIXTURES, POPOUTS, YIELD CONTAMINATING PARTICULES IN THE AGGREGATES OR CEMENT OR POOR CONSTRUCTION PRACTICES. THESE COMPLAINTS ARE BRIEFLY DISCUSSED.
