Roller Compacted Concrete demo at World of Concrete
Roller compacted concrete (RCC) has a long history in dam construction as well as heavy truck haul yards.
Now, with improved paving equipment and mixed designs, RCC is making a name for itself on streets, roads and industrial applications. RCC can be placed with typical high-density asphalt paving equipment allowing for convenient placement. RCC is often less expensive than asphalt pavements while offering a similar quick return of vehicles to the pavement after completion of paving.
The substitution of sand for water in an RCC mix allows for the use of a much drier mix and enhanced finishing equipment provides a smooth, dense surface suitable for low to medium speed roads.
