ready-mixed concrete
Explanation:
ready-mixed concrete

Indeed, "commercial" is often used in sense "towarowy": commercial rubber, commercial gasoline, commercial butane etc. But in the case of concrete the most widely used expression is "ready-mixed":

What Is Ready Mixed Concrete?
Definition:
Concrete is a mixture of cement, water, aggregate (usually sand and gravel or crushed stone). There is a common misunderstanding that cement and concrete are one and the same. Portland cement is the active ingredient in concrete and usually makes up 10 to 20
percent of the weight of a concrete mix.
...
READY MIXED CONCRETE refers to concrete that is delivered to the customer in a freshly mixed and unhardened state. Due to its durability, low cost and its ability to be customized for different applications, ready-mixed concrete is one of the world’s most versatile and popular building materials.
