Coloured Concrete Mix

Coloured Concrete Mix – If the batching of coloured concrete is not accurate, you end up with variants of the colour or different shades of the colour within the concrete.

Producing a Quality and Consistent Coloured Concrete Mix

The Problem

 

Coloured Concrete Mix – If the batching of coloured concrete is not accurate, you end up with variants of the colour or different shades of the colour within the concrete.

Sometimes this is not important if you are manufacturing objects in batches that will not stand by each other.

However, it does become a problem when manufacturing wall or floor panels.

The other problem of manufacturing coloured concrete is cross-contamination and cleaning.

If you want to make a small batch of concrete using a sizeable batching plant, cleaning the plant can be time-consuming. If the plant is not completely clean cross-contamination of old material can change the colour of the new mix.

Accurate batching is needed to ensure you get consistency.

The Solution

 

Coloured Concrete Mix – The solution is simple. If you have a coloured concrete requirement, use another small high accuracy batching plant.

For batching consistency, you need to make sure the batching quantities are within a tight tolerance.

The two ingredients that effect colour most is cement and the coloured admixture. By pre weighing the cement before it is batched ensures the correct amount of cement is added to the mix.

Coloured Admixtures are best measured out and added to the mix by hand for the best results. Using an admixture pump will not be accurate, and colour variations are a risk.

Coloured Concrete Mix Case Story

 

Barrets of Asbury is a UK steel fabrication company. The company won a project to build wall panelling with a black concrete finish.

The production output was 1.5 m3 of concrete per day.

The quality and consistency were the critical purchase drivers. After reviewing many batching plants, Barrets select the fibo mini Viking as there prefered purchase.

The Mini Viking has an output of 5m3 per hour from a 300-litre mixing drum. The 300-litre drum meant small batches of concrete could be produced during the day.
