Consilidating

SCC gets some its fluid quality from superplasticizers (high range water reducers), which increase fluidity without comprising the strength of the concrete.Because high doses of superplasticizers can sometimes make concrete’s paste too thin to support the weight of the coarse aggregate, SCC usually includes viscosity modifiers as well as higher paste volume, more sand, and less coarse aggregate than traditional concrete to ensure that this does not happen. Normally SCC mixers are slightly more expensive the traditional concrete mixes.In theory isn't the total upward movement supposed to match the % rise on the last breakout when it finishes ?It doubled from the bottom, but I guess that's an artificially large rise as it was a bottom.

SCC looks very different from conventional concrete while mixing.The high flowability of SCC is generally attained by using high-range water-reducing (HRWR) admixtures and not by adding extra mixing water.The stability or resistance to segregation of the plastic concrete mixture is attained by increasing the total quantity of fines in the concrete and/or by using admixtures that modify the viscosity of the mixture.No energy is used for vibration, and the absence of vibratory stress on the formwork diminishes both the formwork’s initial costs and maintenance costs.Self-consolidating concrete’s ability to produce a flawless finish also reduces labor costs associated with patch repairs.Rather a different company - this one is in recovery mode, CBUY was and is in erm, well, hiding from the grim-reaper mode ...
