Roller-Compacted Concrete

“Stronger Than Concrete, Cheaper Than Asphalt”

That is our motto. Tough, Fast, and Economical are all the qualities of roller compacted concrete. Like conventional concrete, it shares all the basic ingredients: cement, water, and aggregates. But unlike conventional concrete, RCC has to be compacted and vibrated using a specialized paver and vibratory rollers. Designed properly, RCC can be cheaper than asphalt on a first cost basis. Over the life of the pavement, RCC can provide long serviceability with minimal maintenance. RCC eliminates the costly maintenance problems that are synonymous with asphalt pavements.

Roller Compacted Concrete Performance

Features Benefits
High flexural strength
(500 to 1000 psi)
(3.5 MPa to 7.0 MPa)
Supports heavy, repetitive loads without failure and spans localized soft subgrade areas, which reduces maintenance costs and down time.
High compressive strength (4,000 to 10,000 psi) (28 MPa to 69 MPa) Withstands high concentrated loads and impacts from heavy industrial, military, and mining applications.
High shear strength Eliminates rutting and subsequent repairs.
High density, low absorption Provides excellent durability, even under freeze-thaw conditions;eliminates seepage through pavement.
Low water content, low water/cement ratio Increases strength, reduces permeability, and enhances durability and resistance to chemical attack.
Aggregate interlock Provides high shear resistance at joints and uncontrolled cracks to prevent vertical displacement or faulting.
No steel reinforcing or dowels Speeds and simplifies construction, reduces costs, and eliminates the need for preventative measures taken to minimize corrosion of reinforcing steel.
No forms or finishing Speeds construction, reduces cost, minimizes labor.
No formed or sawed joints Speeds construction, reduces cost. (To enhance appearance, joints can be sawn into RCC pavement.)
Hard, durable, light-colored surface Resists abrasion, eliminates need for surface course and reduces cost. The light color reduces lighting requirements for parking and storage areas.
