RCC is simple, fast and economical to install as it doesn’t contain any steel reinforcement, neither does it require formwork or finishing. Significant savings can be achieved over a traditional pavement construction.
The high strength of an RCC pavement eliminates common problems that have traditionally been associated with other pavement types. RCC is more resistant to rutting, is capable of withstanding heavy concentrated loads and is immune to low or high temperature extremes.
The basic ingredients of RCC are the same as for conventional concrete: sand, aggregates, cement, and water, however the quantities are different. Mix designs may vary based on the job application. RCC is a zero slump concrete mix that is placed using high-density asphalt pavers and compacted with 10 ton rollers similar to the way hot mix asphalt is placed.
Since each project requires a mix design developed using locally available aggregates, CEMEX can work with you to develop the appropriate mix design for the application. CEMEX Paving Solutions offer a wide range of pavement options to our clients and always deliver with a high degree of professionalism and outstanding customer service.
In terms of construction costs, RCC is typically equal to or as much as 20% lower than asphalt, depending on the project. Additionally, the life cycle costs of RCC when compared to asphalt are about 30% lower. View
