It's Easy to Say "Quality". It's Harder to Deliver it.

At Dolese, the quality of our products is of utmost importance - because our products represent us.

To guarantee that our ready-mixed concrete meets specifications and customer expectations, our Quality Control Department regularly monitors and tests our products. At each plant we test our mixes for the proper air entrainment, slump, and unit weight as well as monitor the strength of the mixes through concrete cylinder compression testing.

Our ready-mixed concrete undergoes further testing at Dolese's Central Lab in Oklahoma City. Under the supervision of our Quality Manager, Lab Supervisor, and 8 skilled technicians, new mix designs are developed and tested - not only for fresh properties, but also for hardened properties such as strength and resistance to freeze thaw cycles.  All of this is done to provide our customers with the best quality product.

Dolese Bros. Co. has extensive experience making and delivering a wide variety of concrete products.

From the common to the complex, we can handle your project needs. In our long history, we have produced all of the following concrete types:


Standard Ready-Mixed Concrete

With strengths up to 5,000 psi, standard ready-mixed concrete is appropriate for most general needs and has been our biggest seller with millions upon millions of cubic yards delivered since 1927.


High Strength Ready-Mixed Concrete

High Strength Concrete starts at 6,000 psi, and we have successfully produced 12,000 psi concrete for high-rise construction. We have even higher strengths undergoing research and development.


Mass Concrete

Successful construction of large concrete sections requires mix design skill, production capacity and careful coordination. We have demonstrated our expertise in all of these areas many times - including supplying concrete to the largest mat pour ever done in Oklahoma, with more than 6,400 cubic yards delivered in a single placement.


High Early Strength Concrete

Sometimes speed is the most crucial element, and Dolese can deliver on that with High Early Strength Concrete - which provides the needed strength level in a matter of days. That can really move your schedule along - perhaps even save the schedule! High Early Strength Concrete makes for fast form turnaround, quick loading of post-tension cables or even the early opening of a road - just to name a few benefits.


Fiber Reinforced Concrete

The use of fibers as reinforcement is not new. Fibers have been used to reinforce concrete products since ancient times - but the technology has advanced. We currently furnish three types of synthetic fibers as well as steel fibers for Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC). Small fibers at low dosages are generally used for the mitigation of plastic shrinkage cracking in concrete. Larger macro-synthetic or steel fibers provide concrete with toughness and post-crack load carrying capacity, and can be used as a replacement for rebar in some slab-on-grade applications.


Self-Consolidating Concrete

Also known as Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC), this is an easy flowing, non-segregating concrete that spreads into place, fills form work and encapsulates even the most congested reinforcement with little or no mechanical vibration needed. SCC's unique properties give it significant economic, constructability, aesthetic and engineering advantages.


Reduced Shrinkage / Shrinkage Compensating Concrete

Two different technologies are available to combat concrete shrinkage, which can cause cracking, which in turn leads to durability problems. Shrinking reducing admixtures treat the "cause" of drying shrinkage within the capillaries and pores of the cement paste. Shrinkage compensating materials create an expansive reaction within the cement paste to offset the "effects" of drying shrinkage. Both are effective. 


Flowable Backfill

Also known as "Liquid Soil", this product is delivered in a mixer truck and uses large amounts of sand, water and fly ash which flows into place, hardens, and becomes an excellent load-bearing material with no compaction necessary. Perfect for difficult backfill situations, applications can be utility trenches, bridge abutments, retaining wall backfill or any other application where the use of compaction equipment would be difficult.


Pervious Concrete

When it rains, it drains! Pervious concrete uses little to no sand, creating voids that are typically 15-25% of the volume. Storm water goes through the porous pavement and seeps back into the ground instead of running off. This technology creates more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds or other storm water management projects and is recommended by the EPA as a best management practice.


Architectural / Decorative Concrete

Concrete is one of the most widely used products in the world because it is surprisingly versatile. It can be shaped, textured, patterned and colored while still providing structural integrity. A little imagination combined with the strength, durability and versatility of concrete can turn this seemingly simple product into something beautiful and lasting.

 

Some projects require specialty products. That's where we really shine.

Your project might require concrete that meets unprecedented specifications. We're up to the challenge. We have experience with a broad range of additives and admixtures, as well as the know-how to give concrete the properties you need for applications that require exceptional performance. 

When you call Dolese and ask for something new, different and special, that's when we get to really shine. We've done it over and over, and we'll find a way to deliver you a "concrete" solution.

Section 11: Toxicological Information

Acute Toxicity

Wet concrete is not known to be toxic. Toxicity related to major components of concrete: cement, fly ash, and silica sand are negated in wet concrete form. The matrix precludes the inhalation of these constituents which could normally be of an occupational safety concern. The admixture and air entraining agents are sulfonate solutions which are not considered toxic.

Potential Health Effects: Skin Corrosion Property/Stimulativeness

Discomfort or pain cannot be relied upon to alert a person to a hazardous skin exposure. Consequently, the only effective means of avoiding skin injury or illness involves minimizing skin contact, particularly contact with wetconcrete.Exposed persons may not feel discomfort until hours after the exposure has ended and significant injury has occurred. Exposure during the handling or mixing of the dry ingredients in Ready-Mix concrete may cause drying of the skin with consequent mild irritation or more significant effects attributable to aggravation of other conditions. Exposure to wet concrete may cause more severe skin effects including thickening, cracking or fissuring
of the skin. Prolonged exposurecan causesevere skin damage in the form of (caustic) chemical burns.

Potential Health Effects: Eye Critical Damage/ Stimulativeness

Exposure to airborne dust during the sawing of hardened concrete or handling/mixing of the dry ingredients in Ready-Mix concrete may cause immediate or delayed irritation or inflammation. Eye contact by splashes of wet concrete may cause effects ranging from moderate eye irritation to chemical burns. Such exposures require immediate first aid (see Section 4) and medical attention to prevent significant damage to the eye.

Potential Health Effects: Ingestion

Although inadvertent ingestion of small quantities of wet concrete or its dry ingredients are not known to be harmful, accidental ingestion of larger quantities can be harmful and requires immediate medical attention.

Potential Health Effects: Inhalation

The ingredients in Ready-Mix concrete contain crystalline silica. Exposure to these ingredients in excess of the applicable TLV or PEL may cause or aggravate other lung conditions. Exposure to the dry ingredients in Ready-Mix concrete may cause irritation to the moist mucous membranes of the nose, throat, and upper respiratory system.
