Concrete @ your Fingertips


Concrete - normal types

Concrete can be classified in many ways. For the majority of applications, the following headings are applicable; 

 - reinforced, 
 - unreinforced, 
 - lightweight, 
 - heavyweight, 
 - prestressed, 
 - and air entrained concrete.

Where the characteristics of a concrete need to be modified beyond these normal types, specialist additives, admixtures, cements and aggregates can be used to enhance or the provide the specified properties.
