Sika® ViscoCrete® Technology for Self Compacting Concrete

Sika® ViscoCrete® technology enables results, once thought impossible:

  • Excellent self compacting properties
  • Significant water reductions
  • Easy and simplified placing
  • Excellent flow even around dense reinforcement
  • Easy finishing
  • High strength
  • Consistent slump and flow

 

Sika® ViscoCrete® Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) is a concept to produce concrete, which is extremely fluid as well as cohesive. With the Sika® ViscoCrete® range of concrete admixtures, it is possible to produce a concrete which is very easy and fast to pour and place without vibration.

The concrete moves effortlessly, even through intricate formwork and dense reinforcement, without bleeding or segregation.

 

  • Sika® ViscoCrete® to reduce water contents, improve rheology characteristics and cement hydration efficiency
  • Sika® Stabiliser to improve the internal cohesion properties of fresh concrete

Self Compacting Concrete (SCC) achieved with Sika® Technologies

The outstanding properties and advantages of Sika® ViscoCrete® technology are of considerable benefit to everyone involved in the project: concrete producers, contractors, specifiers and clients.

 

Improved Production and Placing Process:

  • Reduced labour and equipment costs
  • Faster placing times
  • Less finishing work
  • Lower concrete consumption (when thinner elements can be produced)
  • Faster turnaround of formwork and moulds

Improved Quality and Durability

  • Fewer rejects or claims
  • Increased service life
  • Smooth and uniform surfaces

Improved Health and Safety

  • Less vibration reduces the danger of “white finger syndrome” for operatives
  • Reduced vibration prevents hearing damage and improves workplace communication
  • Less disturbance of other trades or neighbours
