What are the admixtures used in concrete?

Standard concrete using Portland cement is
 All equal proportions, 3 of sand, 2 of aggregate (stones) ,1 of cement. ( 5 to 1 mix) And If required, additive fluid which makes it creamy and easy to float. The recipe can be altered slightly, but be aware of the cautions I mention. Admix instructions will come with the container. increasing or decreasing the amount will do nothing for the concrete or render mix. Stick to the instructions. Too much cement does not make it stronger, too little or too much sand weakens it if using the concrete to build on, too much water makes it weaker, and liable to crumble easily when dry. A simplectestvfor construction concrete is the "slump" method. Use a large tube, plastic or glass with no bottom, about 20 cm on a level flat surface, Fill it with mixed concrete, leave for a few minutes, about 15 maximum, then gently slide the tube up, a good mix should slump (settle down) no more than about 30 mm. The test should leave the pile about 15 cm, any more means the concrete mix is too wet. If itvdoesvnot slump, it is too dry, and should be made wetter by adding a small amount of water until the repeat test hits the best target, a slump of about 30mm For render or brick laying, follow the recipe below. Concrete differs only because you need to add in the aggregate. However, do not make concrete too dry, nor too wet. The standard mix is best for most jobs, If not sure about a slump test, the consistency can be gauged by placing a trowel full of mix on a flat surface and laying a brick on it , if the brick is hard to press down it is too dry, and little is squeeze out, add a little water, if the brick flattens easy so the mix oozes out very easily, the mix is too wet, add a small amount of sand and cement. The brick should compress the mix slightly meaning you can retain a bonding standard mix, or a concrete fit for purpose, this best tested by the slump, not the squeeze because the stones will prevent squeezing down.

There is a difference between the recipe, and the test. Test the concrete is a standard mix, this was made with Portland cement in a mixer with 2 parts water to one of sand mix to 2 parts cement to 1 part aggregate and 1 part brick material to make the brick. If the mix is too dry, add more sand and/or concrete, if too wet, add more cement. Cleaning the mix To clean a pile of console, apply the recommended solution of sodium hydroxide in warm water. This is what was used for the test in my experience. After a few hours, the concrete is good to go, and you may be able to take it home or to the shop. If you have used a big container, pour the solution into the mixer's container. The mixer will take a while to make your concrete mix, so it will.
