admixtures

Admixtures are materials other than cement, sand, aggregates, and water that are added to concrete immediately before or during mixing to modify the properties of hardened concrete or to ensure the quality of concrete during mixing, transporting, placing, and curing. Admixtures can be used to provide greater plasticity, workability and earlier levels of strength than from normal concrete.

Accelerating Admixture - Accelerators are added to concrete to reduce setting time of the concrete and to accelerate early strength. The amount of reduction in setting time varies depending on the amount of accelerator used.

Retarding Admixtures - Are often used in hot weather conditions to delay setting time. They are also used to delay set of more difficult jobs or for special finishing operations like exposing aggregate. Many retarders also act as a water reducer.

Air Entraining Admixtures - Must be used whenever concrete is exposed to freezing and thawing, and to deicing salts. Air entraining agents entrains microscopic air bubbles in the concrete: when the hardened concrete freezes, the frozen water inside the concrete expands into these air bubbles instead of damaging the concrete.

Air entrainment improves concrete workability

Air entrainment produces a more workable mix

Water Reducing Admixtures - Reduces the amount of water needed in the concrete mix. The water cement ratio will be lower and the strength will be greater. Most low range water reducers reduce the water needed in the mix by 5%-10%. High range water reducers reduce the mix water needed by 12% to 30% but are very expensive and rarely used in residential work.

Super P - Super P stands for super plasticizers also known as high range water reducers. Its a chemical admixture added to the concrete to make the concrete extremely workable increasing the flowability of the concrete without reducing the concretes strength. The effects of super P are only temporary (15-60minutes) and is generally added on the job by the concrete mixer driver or quality control representative from the company. Super P can reduce the mix water needed by 12% to 30%.

TRUCK FLEET

Kennedy Concrete, Pavers, and Masonry Supply runs a fleet of fifteen Oshkosh S-Series Front Discharge Concrete Mixer Trucks. The front discharge system has several advantages over the rear discharge truck. The main advantage to the front discharge truck is that it can be driven directly into a pouring location. This allows quick and safe positioning by the driver. Since an extra worker is not needed to direct the driver, contractor costs and time on the job site are decreased. Another advantage of the front discharge mixer truck is that while in the cab, the driver can control the pour and have a clear view of chute position. This allows quicker chute positioning and subsequent truck movements during a longer pour. Safety is also improved since the driver does not leave the cab. Current front discharge mixer trucks are equipped with standard all-wheel drive and off-road tires. This permits the front discharge truck to have greater and easier access to difficult locations. Contractors benefit from this aspect because it reduces the need to build access roads to job sites.

concrete plant

Kennedy Concrete, Pavers, and Masonry Supply manufactures ready mixed concrete using a Besser wet batch plant. Our state-of-the-art, high capacity central batch ready mix plant with JONEL computerized batching software ensures uniformity and accuracy of every load of concrete whether your job requires one truck or many. Our central dispatch system provides computer-controlled scheduling and tracking of our fleet, improving on-time delivery.

Thousands of mix designs are readily available to meet your special job requirements. If we don’t have one that works for you, we’ll tailor one to meet your specific design application.

Faq's

A) WHAT KIND OF MIX DO I NEED?

There are 2 basic mixes: 3/4" stone which is usually dumped out of the back of the truck and 3/8" stone which is usually pumped or you can get mixed stone which is a combination of both.

B. WHAT STRENGTH DO I NEED FOR MY PROJECT?

You will have to determine the strength of the concrete that you need. The minimum strength we deliver is 3000 psi, which is typical for non-load bearing items as patios, walkways, footings and wall grout. A typical driveway could be 3000 psi for passenger cars or 3500 psi for SUV’s, trucks or motor homes.

C. HOW MANY YARDS DO I NEED?

Take your measurements and then enter it in our volume calculator on the right hand side of this page. Some concrete will remain in the truck and/or pump so don’t forget to add a little extra to make sure you have enough. You can also give you dimensions to the concrete dispatcher and we will be more than happy to figure it out for you.

D. HOW DO I DECIDE IF I NEED A PUMP OR NOT?

You have 3 choices for getting the concrete from the concrete truck to your project:

1. Place it using the truck’s chutes, which extend about 12' from the front of the truck (you will need about 14' clearance and about 10' width for the truck)

2. Pump it using a concrete pump (we can arrange at separate cost)

3. Wheelbarrow: If there is not room for a ready-mix truck to get within 12' of your project, you will need to pump it or wheelbarrow it. If you decide to wheelbarrow, keep in mind that one yard of concrete weighs about 4,000 pounds and that you will probably incur some truck time.

E. WHAT CAN I DO TO PREVENT CRACKING?

Concrete shrinks during the hydration process and has a tendency to crack. This is called shrinkage cracking. The least expensive product for reducing plastic shrinkage cracking is FIBERMESH. Millions of tiny fibers are added at the time of batching. These fibers reduce plastic shrinkage cracking and improve durability, among other things. Go to www.fibermesh.com for more information.

F. DO YOU FORM AND FINISH THE CONCRETE?

No, we are a ready-mix supplier. You or your concrete contractor get the job ready. Our truck delivers the concrete and your workers do the rest. Give us a call and we will be happy to recommend a handful of concrete contractors that are reputable in your area.
