Ready mix concrete

BIT ready mix concrete is a division of Business integrated technics that was build over years (since 2001) of concrete business involvement. After years of doing the most hard work, moving your ready mixed concrete from the truck mixers to the point you need it most through our articulated concrete pumps and stationery pumps, floating it, we did build our own ready mix plants. Now we can supply the whole of central Johannesburg, Mondeor, Randburg, Sandton, Soweto, Rosebank, Roodepoort, Krugersdorp (westrand area), Germiston, Kempton Park, Boksburg, Pomona, Jetpark, Tembisa, Midrand and many other areas in the greater Johannesburg.  Now we can proudly say we manufacture, mix, deliver, and pump high quality ready mixed concrete at reasonable price to our clients. Our plants are fully automated, this makes it easier and fast to prepare your concrete. We supply all types of strengths requested by clients ranging from 10 mpa up to +40 mpa. Our products range from: Ordinary concrete mixes from 10 MPa – 40 MPa, Pump mixes of most designs (we can help with our in-house concrete pumping services), Self leveling and self compacting concrete, Coloured concrete (own concrete colours), Screeds concrete, Fibre/steel chips reinforced concrete.

Why ready mixed concrete

Firstly what is concrete?  Concrete, its when aggregates are mixed together with dry cement and water, this mixture forms a fluid slurry that can be easily poured and molded into shapes. The cement reacts chemically with the water and other ingredients to form a hard matrix that binds the materials together into a durable stone-like material that has many uses. Often, additives (such as pozzolans or superplasticizers) may be included in the mixture to improve the physical properties of the wet mix or the finished material. Most concrete is poured with reinforcing materials such as rebar embedded to provide tensile strength, yielding reinforced concrete.

Any person can mix concrete, you just need to understand the basics, see illustrative diagram aside. The hard part only comes when one has to mix more than three cubes, in reality it becomes un-economical viable, hence the ready mixed concrete. One would still say what is ready mixed concrete, it is the concrete that is manufactured in a factory or batching plant, according to a set recipe or concrete mix design, and then delivered to a work site, by a truck mounted in-transit mixers. This results in a precise mixture, allowing professional specialty concrete mixtures to be developed and implemented on construction sites. The first ready-mix factory is believed to have been built in the early 1930s, but the industry did not begin to expand significantly until the 1980s, and in South Africa it has continued to grow since late 80s.
