Concrete

Residential. Commercial. Infrastructure.

Concrete

Concrete mix psi (pounds per square inch) range from 100psi to over 8,000psi in 500psi increments. Mix design is available for projects requiring specific performance and characteristics. Please call our order desk for details.

As our name suggests, Outback Materials supplies concrete and aggregates to rough terrain and mountainous regions in the central High Sierras. We supply materials to Yosemite, Sequoia and other surrounding National Parks and Forests.

When you buy from Outback, you get more for your money than anywhere else.

WE PROVIDE CONCRETE MIXES FROM 100 PSI TO 8,000 PSI FOR FILL TO HIGH PERFORMANCE STRUCTURES.

Additives

FIBERMESH
Reduces drying and plastic shrinkage in concrete and can replace the use of some wire mesh requirements in concrete. 

PLASTICIZERS
These additives allow for easy placement of concrete by increasing the fluidity (slump) of concrete while maintaining the compressive strength and durability of the concrete. 

RETARDERS
These additives slow the setting of concrete and are used when concrete must be delivered long distances or when on difficult job sites where is will take the contractor a long time to place the concrete. 

ICE
Ice assists in meeting stringent temperature requirements for government projects.

Lightweight Aggregate

This specialty rock is imported from Colorado and decreases the weight of plastic and hardened concrete from approximately 140 lbs/ft3 to 124 lbs./ft3.

Exposed Aggregate Mixes

Exposed aggregate is widely used for swimming pool borders, sidewalks, paths, and a variety of architectural design flair.

ACCELERATORS
These additives, combined with hot water can provide set times typical in the summer months during the late fall, winter and early spring. Using accelerators provides time savings to the contractor. Since time is money, accelerators provide the best option for getting the job done quickly. 

HOT WATER
Heated water increases the temperature of the concrete which improves the setting time of concrete for cold days. 


CHILLED WATER
We offer chilled water during the summer for projects with specific temperature requirements.
