At Graestone Ready Mix, we offer a wide selection of performance concrete mixes for all kinds of construction projects. All of our performance concrete mixes meet or exceed CSA standards and provide consistent raw materials and set times.
Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is perfect for both commercial and residential projects that can benefit from an easy to place product. Since SCC flows easily, this type of performance concrete mix requires fewer people, less time to place, and does not require vibration to settle, helping to reduce labour costs. Thanks to its excellent durability, strength (25-80 MPa), and superior finish, SCC is also ideal for placing around congested reinforcement or rebar.
We offer a variety of SCC mixes for both vertical and horizontal applications. Get in touch with us today to find out which type of SCC mix will work best for your project!
Structural shotcrete uses a high-velocity application via hoses and compressed air to compact the concrete and help it settle onto surfaces or into forms. Thanks to its unique application method, shotcrete is an excellent choice for both residential and commercial applications and it can eliminate the need for expensive framing. This type of performance concrete mix has low shrinkage and may be reinforced with steel, polypropylene fibres, and silica fume for better strength.

Low Shrinkage Concrete
At Graestone Ready Mix, we only use quality products backed by quality research. When your project has a shrinkage specification requirement, we use chemical admixtures and/or specialty cements to reduce shrinkage so single slabs can be laid with reduced saw cuts and fewer joints per square foot among other uses.

High Early Concrete
We understand that time is money in the construction industry. That is why we recommend using high early concrete for any projects you need to fast-track. High early concrete can help increase turnaround time without reducing the overall strength of the concrete and it allows you to use less formwork and to reuse formwork more often. Depending on the mix, high early concrete can achieve 20 MPa in as little as 24, 48, 72 hours.
Get in touch with us today to find out how our high early concrete mixes can help save you time and money.
High Strength Concrete
Since some concrete construction applications require superior workability, durability, and increased abrasion resistance, we offer high strength concrete that is perfect for any job that calls for greater strength or less waiting time. Our high strength concrete offers a compression strength range from 50-90 MPa, which means that you may end up needing less concrete for the job or might be able to eliminate additional reinforcement techniques, making the concrete simpler and faster to place.

At Graestone Ready Mix, we understand that waterproofing is an important element in commercial and residential construction. That is why we work closely with Kryton, our supplier of concrete waterproofing solutions, to use special admixtures to waterproof our concrete from the inside out and eliminate the need for external waterproofing methods. While our admixtures provide the best method for protecting your concrete from water damage, we also offer a surface-applied concrete waterproofing solution from Kryton for waterproofing existing buildings and repairs.
