SCC allows easier pumping (even from bottom up), flows into complex shapes, transitions through inaccessible spots, and minimizes voids around embedded items to produce a high degree of homogeneity and uniformity.That's why SCC allows for denser reinforcement, optimized concrete sections and shapes, and greater freedom of design while producing superior surface finishes and textures.
Adjustments to traditional mix designs and the use of superplasticizers creates flowing concrete that meets tough performance requirements.
If needed, low dosages of viscosity modifier can eliminate unwanted bleeding and segregation.
Self-consolidating concrete (SCC) is recognized as one of the greatest advances in the concrete industry over the past 20 years.
Using new admixtures and some mix modifications, we can now produce concrete that flows easily without segregating (where the coarse aggregate separates from the cement paste).
The viscosity, as visually observed by the rate at which concrete spreads, is an important characteristic of plastic SCC and can be controlled when designing the mix to suit the type of application being constructed. give it significant economic, constructability, aesthetic and engineering advantages.
