CONCERA® Admixtures for Control Flow Concrete

More than a water reducer—a category creator.

CONCERA® admixtures make it possible to create control flow concrete, which bridges the gap between conventional and self-compacting concrete. This high flow, segregation-resistant concrete consistently flows and takes less labour to place and finish compared to conventional concrete.

CONCERA® SA8646
Description

CONCERA® SA8646 is a high efficiency superplasticizer based on patented rheology modifying polycarboxylate technology, intended for the production of Control Flow Concrete. CONCERA® SA8646 is formulated to extreme workability without segregation to concrete.

Key Benefits
  • High flowability concrete
  • Segregation resistant
Application Type
  • Provides excellent water tolerance to make concrete mixture less susceptible to normal manufacturing moisture fluctuations
  • Extends slump life with neutral set to enable batch plant adjustments and fast construction with high early strength at jobsite, or reduced cycle time of precast production
CONCERA® SA8703
Description

CONCERA® SA8703 is a high efficiency polycarboxylate-based superplasticizer intended for the production of Control Flow Concrete, a highly flowable concrete utilising conventional mix designs. CONCERA® SA8703 is formulated to extend slump-flow life while imparting extreme workability without segregation to concrete.

Key Benefits
  • Uses conventional mix designs
  • Enables the production of extremely high-flowing, segregation resistant concrete
Application Type
  • Produces concrete with extremely high levels of workability without segregation. Slump flows can vary from 400 to 650mm with the types of materials used.
  • Provides superior water tolerance to the concrete, making it less susceptible to normal manufacturing moisture fluctuations.
CONCERA® SA8704
Description

CONCERA® SA8704 is a high efficiency polycarboxylate-based superplasticizer intended for the production of Control Flow Concrete, a highly flowable concrete utilising conventional mix designs. CONCERA® SA8704 is formulated to extend slump-flow life while imparting extreme workability without segregation to concrete.

Key Benefits
  • Enables the production of extremely high-flowing, segregation resistant concrete
  • Yields consistent and predictable slump flows
Application Type
  • Produces concrete with extremely high levels of workability without segregation. Slump flows can vary from 400 to 650mm with the types of materials used.
  • Provides superior water tolerance to the concrete, making it less susceptible to normal manufacturing moisture fluctuations
  • Extends slump life to enable batch plant adjustments and predictable job site plastic properties.
CONCERA® SA8705
Description

CONCERA® SA8705 is a high efficiency polycarboxylate-based superplasticizer intended for the production of Control Flow Concrete, a highly flowable concrete utilising conventional mix designs. CONCERA® SA8705 is formulated to extend slump-flow life while imparting extreme workability without segregation to concrete.

Key Benefits
  • Provides extended slump flow retention
  • Reduces/eliminates job-site QC support
  • Provides consistent air management
Application Type
  • Produces concrete with extremely high levels of workability without segregation. Slump flows can vary from 400 to 650 mm with the types of materials used.
CONCERA® SA8706
Description

CONCERA® SA8706 is a high efficiency polycarboxylate-based superplasticizer intended for the production of Control Flow Concrete, a highly flowable concrete utilising conventional mix designs.

  • Extends slump life to enable batch plant adjustments and predictable job site plastic properties.
Overview

High flow concrete with conventional mix designs

With CONCERA® admixtures, producers can create control flow concrete using conventional mix designs and ordinary materials. This results in concrete slump flows between those of conventional concrete and self-compacting concrete.

Where to use Control Flow Concrete

Contractors can use control flow concrete anywhere they need highly flowable concrete, high passing ability or easy placement. This includes:

  • Foundation mats
  • Beams
  • Walls
  • Floors
  • Pilings and footers
  • Decks 
  • Columns

Get more value

Concrete producers and contractors get more value out of conventionally proportioned control flow concrete by reducing placing time and labour costs.

Producers:

  • Create high quality, high-flow concrete without adjusting concrete mix designs
  • Gain market differentiation with a new concrete type
  • Achieve higher sales and better results

Contractors:

  • Accelerate project completion with concrete that’s easy to place and finish 
  • Improve safety by reducing the physical stress on workers and decreasing the vibration needed for concrete placement 
  • Use durable, high-quality concrete that builds customer trust
