Concrete
Mix

Dingo concrete mix is suitable for DIY pathways, small concrete slabs, garden edging and for securing structural posts and footings. It is Drymix concrete combination of aggregate, sand and cement, mixed together ready for the addition of water.

Mixing directions:

  1. Make sure your project is properly laid out with all the necessary tools at hand.
  2. Pour required amount of concrete into a wheel barrow or onto a clean surface. Use contents as soon as possible after opening the package.
  3. Add water gradually and mix thoroughly to a stiff consistency (one bag requires 1-1.15 litres of clean water). Excess water can ruin good concrete. Do not add water after the concrete had been mixed, as this reduces the strength of the concrete.

Handy hints:

  1. Placing – Use the shovel to remove air bubbles or tap the boxing with a hammer.
  2. Finishing – Leave to stand for approximately one hour before trowelling to the desired finish.
  3. Curing – Cure the concrete by keeping it moist for seven days.
  4. Storage – Keep dry prior to use. Unused contents must be kept dry.
