|Concrete for which the client established the binder dosage required. Material used in non-structural concrete, usually cleaning concrete.||12|
Prescribed Concrete Mix
|Concrete for which the composition and constituent materials are specified to the producer, who is responsible for supplying a type of concrete with the composition specified. Used when the composition of the concrete is established by the client.||11|
|Produced by mixing cement, coarse and fine aggregates, and water, with or without the admixtures and additions, which develops its properties through hydration.||1|
Controlled Shrinkage Concrete
|Concrete in which admixtures are used to reduce shrinkage and related cracking. Material used to repair structures, floors, slabs, and prefabricated elements.||9|
|Dry concrete made to be compacted using a roller. Material used for outdoor flooring or paving subbases.||8|
