•Used in foundation where low bearing capacity of soil is obtained
•In buildings where there is more vibration due to heavy traffic or running of factory.
•Under foundation of RCC columns, stairs, raft, RCC walls.

Cement Concrete 1:2:4

Where cement concrete 1:2; 4 ratio is used it means 1 part cement 2 parts of fine aggregate or coarse sand and 4 parts of coarse aggregate. This ratio cement concrete has good strength and is recommended for the following type of buildings and works:-

•Used in beams, slabs, columns, stairs and walls of ordinary, single story and temporary buildings.
•Used in retaining walls, pavements, floors and bedplates etc.

Cement Concrete 1:1.5: 3

Where cement concrete 1:1:5:3 ratio is used it means 1 part cement 1.5 parts of fine aggregate or coarse sand and 3 parts of coarse aggregate. This ratio cement concrete has very good strength and is recommended for the following type of buildings and works:-

•Important RCC structures, piles, arches, impermeable construction against water heads.
•This ratio of cement concrete is safe against earth quake.
