For Chandler, quality control begins with using quality ingredients and procedures that reduce or eliminate potential problems in delivery, finishing and resulting strength and durability. Chandler provides all standard mixes and tests according to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) specifications for strength, temperature, slump, air content and unit weight. Each Chandler mix is designed and tested by an ACI certified professional. We have the ability to perform on-site tests to ensure our product meets the required specifications. When requested, we also have the ability to provide follow-up test results for your project.
Proper planning and site preparation will significantly reduce concrete material and placement issues. The National Ready Mixed Concrete Association provides Concrete in Practice recommendations for improving your concrete. Before the mix leaves the plant, Chandler quality control ensures it meets the customer’s specifications for air entrainment and slump to ASTM standards.
