Self Compacting Concrete (SCC)
Ideal for foundations and underground structures, self-compacting concrete is easy to pour into the required area, without the need for vibrators or mechanical compaction. During the manufacturing process, admixtures such as high range water reducers are added to the mix to increase the workability without inducing segregation of the mix the high workability allows the concrete to level off and self-compact.
Benefits of self-compacting concrete
With standard concrete, there can be a risk that it will segregate, which causes it to lose strength and structural integrity. A quality self-compacting concrete mix, however, will not segregate, meaning it meets the necessary performance requirements. Benefits of SCC include:
