What is Ready-Mix Concrete?
In its basic form Ready Mix Concrete is the mixture of sand, stone, cement and water. The cement (a dry fine powder) is combined with water to form a paste which is than mixed with fine and coarse aggregates (sand and stone respectively) to form a solid material when cured.
