How to

This is your guide to choosing a suitable Eco Building Cement strength 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 suitable for unreinforced foundations for 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.

2 bags = 1 wheelbarrow

High-Strength Concrete

For 25-30 MPa (nominal at 28 days), this concrete mix 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 45 MPa, this concrete mix is suitable for suspended structural beams and slabs, columns, and water retaining structures.

We suggest adding an extra 10% for wastage.
