Self consolidating concrete purchase
Self-consolidating concrete is required to flow and fill special forms under its own weight, it shall be flowable enough to pass through highly reinforced areas, and must be able to avoid aggregate segregation.
Self Consolidating Concrete can be defined as a highly flowable, non-segregating concrete that has the ability to spread by its own weight while filling the formwork and encasing the reinforcement without any form of mechanical consolidation.
The importance of self-compacting concrete is that maintains all concrete’s durability and characteristics, meeting expected performance requirements.
In certain instances the addition of superplasticizers and viscosity modifier are added to the mix, reducing bleeding and segregation.
It is typical to also perform a slump flow test with the J-ring test.
This test is similar to the J-ring except the J-ring is not used.
