Why choose SCC?

  • SCC can be placed at a fast rate resulting in faster placement times.
  • Quicker turnaround of forms due to earlier strength gain.
  • More uniform surface finish reduces remedial surface work after the fact
  • Restricted areas or areas congested with steel. Or where traditional concrete, even with the use of super plasticizers can’t go, SCC will flow.
  • Improves pumpability and uniformity of cast-in-place concrete by doing away with any means of vibration
  • Increases jobsite safety by being able to place concrete with fewer people and less equipment
  • Reduction in jobsite noise pollution by eliminating noisy vibrators, generators and/or other methods of consolidating
  • Reduction in man hours and overall jobsite material cost reduction 

Self Consolidating Concrete

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. 


  • Walls
  • Columns
  • Slab – on grade / suspended
  • Floor Leveling – <4” & >1” (some restrictions and/or limitations apply)
  • Architectural finished / Exposed surfaced
  • Tight or intricate formwork and/or congested reinforcement
  • Where traditional concrete can’t go, SCC will flow!!!
  • Self-Consolidating Concrete increases the finishability while at the same time reducing remedial work and placement costs.  It can be pressure pumped resulting in less work and can lower overall labour.
  • SCC can be placed at a faster rate with little to no vibration required resulting in a dramatic savings in placement and labour costs.
  • Challenging designs thought to be impossible can now be achieved with SCC.  Due to its fluidity, SCC can flow into inaccessible heavy congested reinforcement easier than traditional concrete.
