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.
