How To:

This is your guide to choosing a suitable strength all-purpose cement for your specific use and how to mix it.

Low Strength Concrete

For low-strength 10-15 MPa (nominal at 28 days), this concrete mix is best used for unreinforced foundations in single-storey houses and free-standing walls.

We suggest adding an extra 10% for wastage.

2 bags = 1 wheelbarrow

Medium Strength Concrete:

For medium strength 15-25 MPa (nominal at 28 days) this concrete mix is suitable for reinforced foundations and slabs, light-duty house floors, paths, patios, steps, driveways and garage floors.

We suggest adding an extra 10% for wastage.

High Strength Concrete:

For high strength 25-30 MPa (nominal at 28 days), this concrete is suitable for suspended structural beams and slabs; precast items such as flagstones; and heavy-duty surfaces such as workshop floors.

We suggest adding an extra 10% for wastage.

2 bags = 1 wheelbarrow

Ultra-High strength Concrete

For ultra-high strength at 45 MPa, this concrete mix is suitable for suspended structural beams and slabs, columns and water retaining structures.

We suggest that you allow an additional 10% for wastage.
