What is Self-Consolidating Concrete? Builder's Concrete East Explains, Windham, Connecticut

Not all concrete is made the same; it comes in different forms for different purposes. Self-consolidating concrete is one of many different concrete mixes available today. If you’ve never heard of this type of mixed concrete, let Builder's Concrete East, a concrete company in Windham and Manchester, CT, explain its properties and advantages in construction.

Self-consolidating concrete has unique properties that allow it to be poured into its desired form by virtue of its own weight and not by any outside mechanism, making it easier and faster to use on construction sites. Here are just a few of the reasons that concrete suppliers like Builder's Concrete East like using self-consolidating concrete:

  • Cost And Time Effective: Because it can be poured at a quicker rate than most other concrete mixes, self-consolidating concrete saves money and time, particularly when it comes to labor costs.
  • Ease Of Use: With self-consolidating concrete, there is no mechanism needed to manipulate the poured concrete and very little work that needs to be done to smooth the surface. As far as heavy construction tasks go, this is one of the easier ones!
  • Quiet: Other concrete mixers and pourers require the use of loud trucks and vibrating mechanisms to ready the concrete, which doesn’t make residents living near construction sites very happy. However, none of the noise is needed with self-consolidated concrete thanks to its ability to pour more easily.

For over 50 years, Builder's Concrete East has been the go-to concrete company in Connecticut. For more information on self-consolidating concrete or any other concrete mixes, call (860) 456-4111, or visit the concrete company on the web
