C25 Concrete Mix

Concrete, a vital construction material, boasts durability, strength, and adaptability across numerous applications. Among concrete mix ratios, C25 stands out for its exceptional benefits. In the UK, a specific blend of ingredients is employed to achieve this value, marking it as part of a standardised method for categorising concrete mixes based on compressive strength. The designation “25” indicates the desired compressive strength in megapascals after 28 days of curing.

For a reliable C25 concrete supply, trust Ready Mix Concrete London. Our expert team meticulously crafts the perfect C25 mix ratio tailored to your needs. With our bespoke approach, you receive precisely the quantities required, eliminating the hassle of overordering or underordering.

Keep an Eye on the Slump Test

The slump test is crucial for assessing the consistency of the concrete mix. We check the slump after mixing to fine-tune the mix ratio and achieve the desired consistency.

Benefits of ST2 Concrete

Cost-Effectiveness: C25 concrete provides ample strength while using less cement, making it a cost-effective option.

Enhanced Freeze-Thaw Resilience: In cold weather, it demonstrates increased resistance to freeze-thaw cycles, ensuring it can bear freezing temperatures without any potential damage.

Consistent Performance: Its precise mix proportions produce uniform performance in different consignments, facilitating operative construction and planning.

Reduced Shrinkage: Using C25 concrete minimises the risk of shrinkage-related cracks, contributing to creating more durable infrastructure.

Time Efficiency: The concrete mix ratio balances the work schedule, ultimately benefiting project deadlines.

Frequently Asked Questions

The mix design for C25 concrete dictates the proportions of its ingredients. Specifically, the mix ratio for C25 concrete is 1:2:4. This signifies that for each unit of cement used, there is a double amount of fine aggregate and four times the amount of coarse aggregate.

C25 concrete usually requires approximately 24 to 48 hours to dry sufficiently. However, concrete drying is continuous and dynamic, with its full effective strength typically attained around 28 days after pouring.

Manual mixing may not achieve the homogeneity and durability of machine mixing, particularly for C25 concrete. Ready Mix Concrete London employs advanced mechanical mixers for optimal blending and consistency.
