General Purpose Concrete

*£5.99 Inc VAT 20Kg Bag*


Supplied in 20kg Plastic bags that are showerproof and recyclable

General Purpose Concrete is suitable for concrete bases, garage and shed floors, post erection, walkways, steps, patio backfill, infill, general repair work and other non-structural applications.

The mix is a kiln dried, pre-blended, factory-produced prescribed concrete mix, incorporating standardised binders and aggregates, with a guaranteed cement content and mix proportions.

Mixing Instructions
To overcome any potential segregation that has occurred in transit, thoroughly mix the maxi bag contents before use.

The contents of the bag can be mechanically mixed in a free fall mixer for 3-4 minutes or hand mixed by pouring the contents of the bag onto a clean flat surface and slowly adding clean water in increments and mixing continuously, until the desired workability is achieved. For optimum results, approximately 2.0 to 2.5 litres of clean water should be used per bag. The concrete should be used within 60 minutes of water addition.

Refrain from excessive water addition as this will weaken the mix, delay setting times and adversely affect durability.

There is no need to add further additives or admixtures to the material on site as all required plasticizers and workability aids are already incorporated into the mix.

After Laying
For optimum results, the concrete should be cured for at least seven days after laying by covering with plastic sheeting or another suitable material. Similar measures should be taken where appropriate to protect the concrete from the effects of the sun, wind, rain and frost.

Approx coverage per bag when mixed using 2.0 to 2.5 litres of clean water:

0.5m² at 25mm (1 inch deep)
0.25m² at 50mm (2 inch deep)
