Design Mix Concrete
Computerized batching plants under controlled conditions produce design mix concreteby using an accurate selection of ingredients & their quantities. The concrete produced using this method is of much superior quality than conventional concrete. Structures constructed using metal forms & design mix concrete provide greater durability & better seismic performance as compared to conventional brick & mortar construction.It is possible to save up to 15% of cement for M20 grade of concrete with the help of design mix concrete. A high grade of concrete will helps to keep production costs low. Lower cement content also results in lower heat of hydration and hence reduces shrinkage cracks.
Usually System Formwork as described earlier is used in premium/luxury developments in metropolitan areas of India.
