Self consolidating concrete mix
Utility Concrete Products specializes in Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC), also known as Self Compacting Concrete, which is a high-performing concrete that can be poured into place flowing over obstacles such as heavily reinforced structures and into complex forms with little or no vibration needed without segregating.These features make Self-Containing Concrete highly workable.In everyday terms, when poured, SCC is an extremely fluid mix with the following distinctive practical features - it flows very easily within and around the formwork, can flow through obstructions and around corners ("passing ability"), is close to self-levelling (although not actually self-levelling), does not require vibration or tamping after pouring, and follows the shape and surface texture of a mold (or form) very closely once set.As a result, pouring SCC is also much less labor-intensive compared to standard concrete mixes.Cement mixtures include high early strength concrete, concrete pervious, fast drying concrete, high strength concrete, self-consolidating concrete, reduced shrinkage concrete , architectural/colored concrete, waterproof concrete, low heat concrete and environmental friendly concrete .

Once poured, SCC is usually similar to standard concrete in terms of its setting and curing time (gaining strength), and strength.
SCC does not use a high proportion of water to become fluid - in fact SCC may contain less water than standard concretes.
