SCC technology and concretemanufacturers’ role

Developing concrete technology changes the weighting of responsibility


Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) has been known globally for over 2 decades. In some countries this technology is well established and some are going through a great deal of uncertainties. Because of its unique flow and deformation characteristics, SCC allows to substantially change the way the concreting is executed. The important difference between conventionally vibrated concrete technology and SCC is that the quality of structures made of SCC nearly entirely depends on the fresh properties of SCC, which puts the responsibility pressure on a concrete manufacturer. On the other hand, it increases the concrete manufacturer’s role and raises his profile within construction industry. But in some places the role of a concrete supplier is undervalued either by concrete manufacturers themselves or by other industry members.
