CONCRETE DESIGN IDEAS

Volumetric mixers are more economical than barrel mixers due to its time and cost saving solutions for overall waste reduction. Mobil-One Concrete trucks provide various onsite multi-mix designs that is calculated for a specific strength or designed to have certain desirable finishing properties. The mix is proportioned using known volumes of the component materials in the mix design.
