Overview

Solve challenging forms, improve efficiency and quality with high-strength SCC

Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) is a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that spreads into place, fills formwork, self-compacts and encapsulates even the most congested reinforcement, all without any mechanical vibration. SCC flows evenly around complex or congested forms without segregation.

SCC produced with ADVA® Cast products provides unique advantages over conventional flowing concrete:

  • Lower SCC viscosity
  • Self-placement
  • No segregation
  • No blocking
  • Improved finishes

This results in high-quality, high performance, precast concrete elements.

Feature: ADVA® Cast 585 and the GCP Air Management System

Precast/prestressed concrete often requires air entrainment to improve its freezing and thawing durability. Entrained air must be present in the correct concentration (air content %) and also fall within industry specified parameters (e.g. spacing factor, size of the air bubbles, etc.) in order to be fully effective and in compliance, ADVA® Cast 585 contains a special (patent pending) deformer package designed to develop a stable air void system consisting of smaller air bubbles, which helps meet specifications and performance requirements.

In addition to providing an excellent air void system and benefits of a high-range water-reducer, ADVA® Cast 585 can be combined with AIRtrac™, a sensor that measures the temperature and total air content of concrete in real time while mixing. When combined, these products and technologies provide for a complete AIR Management System.
