VIDEO: Premier Specialty Concrete Chemical Capabilities

GCP Applied Technologies' highly skilled workforce develops and researches cutting-edge techniques for innovative discoveries in specialty construction chemicals—particularly, advanced concrete technology.

TYTRO®

TYTRO® Shotcrete S​ystem​ offers specialty shotcrete admixtures that are formulated for shotcrete mixes to achieve high performance characteristics and meet project requirements. Due to their synergetic benefit, they are formulated to be used together.

TYTRO® RC 430 (​rheology control agent) advantages:


  • Lower installed material cost vs. silica fume
  • Minimum rebound and dust
  • Faster strength development
  • Larger layer thickness in single pass

STRUX® patented macro synthetic fibers

STRUX® macro-synthetic fibers are high performing proprietary engineered copolymer fibers used as a replacement for steel fibers and wire mesh reinforcement in underground shotcrete construction. STRUX® is added to shotcrete to provide toughness, impact, and fatigue properties. In addition to its superior crack control and resistance, STRUX® also eliminates corrosion issues or safety concerns associated with the use of steel fibers.

STRUX® BT50 advantages:

  • Faster and safer construction
  • Lightweight reinforcement
  • Superior crack control
  • Non-corroding
  • Enhanced durability

Verifi® in-transit concrete delivery system

Verifi® is a patented concrete management system providing sophisticated, automated process monitoring and control during transit from the ready-mix plant to the jobsite.

Advantages:

  • Measure and correct slump
  • Monitor and report on concrete management
  • Track driver compliance to company policies
  • Monitor and report operational performance
  • Track customer wait times
  • Improved time efficiency
  • Reduction in back charges/returned loads
  • Increased quality/cost efficiency
  • Cement reduction
  • Contractor benefits

High-performance concrete admixtures

Adva® 198

  • Advanced rheology control
  • Faster wet out time
  • Superior air control
  • Easier placement
  • Enhanced strength
