1st Mix FAQs - Ready-mixed concrete for Agricultural Use

Q. What makes 1stMix concrete for agricultural use better than normal mixes?
A. 1stMix has a specially designed mix for the agricultural industry and takes into account the anticipated traffic and varied climatic conditions in and around the farm.
   
Q. Can I get a milk tanker in within 24 hours of placing?
A. Early trafficking by heavy vehicles will damage the new surface and may also cause serious cracking. Ideally, the concrete should not be subjected to vehicular use for seven days without protecting the surface.  However, we have designed concretes to enable access at 24 hours. These concretes are specifically designed for rapid early strength and will require different handling techniques, so please call us to discuss.
   
Q. Does the slab need steel reinforcement?
A. Unless the sub-base is unstable or weak, steel reinforcement will generally not be required. 1stMix ready-mixed concrete for agricultural use can contain fibres to control plastic shrinkage cracking and we can advise on joint location and spacing.
   
Q. What type of surface finish do you recommend for a path or yard?
A. For vehicular traffic we would advise a normal tamped finish, but where livestock movement is anticipated then a heavy brush finish would be more appropriate.
   
Q. What finish is recommended for a grain store?
A. A smooth powerfloat finish will ensure that the surface can be cleaned easily. This will help to meet ACCS quality standards.
   
Q. What type of surface finish do you recommend for livestock areas?
A. A brush finish is best suited to stock flooring and is what most farm building contractors will advise. This will aid slip resistance and increase abrasion resistance to mechanical damage.
   
Q. What thickness of slab do I need and does it have to be reinforced?
A. A slab depth of 150mm is adequate. Structural reinforcement is not needed in a ground supported slab. 1stMix ready-mixed concrete for agricultural use can contain fibres to control plastic shrinkage cracking. If this is something you need please let us know when placing the order.
   
Q. Can 1stMix concrete for agricultural use be trafficked by heavy delivery lorries?
A. Yes, 1stMix ready-mixed concrete for agricultural use has a high-strength mix. This produces a high-performance concrete which will withstand trafficking by lorries and is suitable for loaders. If this is something you need please let us know when placing the order.
 
   
Q. Are all the 1stMix concrete for agricultural use options readily available?
A. Yes, they can be supplied from all our depots without any additional prior notice. Simply specify what your application is and our customer services team will help you select the most appropriate product for your specific application.
