Mixing Concrete Basics

mixing concrete in a bucket

Learning to work with concrete for the first time can feel quite challenging however concrete mixing is actually quite easy to do once you understand the basic concepts. Mixing concrete is exactly like baking except it is a chemical reaction in the portland cement caused by the catalyst water and bakes at room temperature. Much like the baking process the recipe and ratios of ingredients used are critical to the success of the finished product.

Mixing aggregates like sand or gravel along with portland cement and water will yield concrete. The portland cement and water when mixed together will harden however on its own it would be very weak. By adding the aggregates the portland cement and water mixture acts like a glue, bonding together the very strong sand and gravel. Learning the proportions of sand, rocks, cement and water to use for various concrete applications is the first challenge a concrete novice will need to overcome.
