Volumetric delivery trucks equipped with pigment meters offer producers a productive way to profit from marketing integrally colored concrete. Their benefits include:
- No need for additional bin capacity.
- Reduced waste concrete disposal.
- Quick color change capability.
- Accurate water/pigment ratios.
While volumetric trucks can transform point-of-sale coloring into a profitable endeavor, its real value is to the customer. A trained driver becomes an onsite batchman who immediately controls color tint and delivery rate. Point-of-sale colored concreting with volumetric trucks can be a producer's best tool to start expanding a strong local decorative concrete market. Eventually successful small colored-concrete jobs will encourage contractors to try bigger jobs. And with modern color additive equipment and confident contractors, the world will recognize that not all concrete has to be gray.Keywords: color, volumetric, Cemen Tech, Elkin, Margar, Reich America, Reimer International, Zimmerman Industries
