Self Settling and Pressing Concrete
It is a high performance concrete that may be spread homogenously to required section with its own weight, self pressed without vibration, ensures full compactness in the section, and has features such as high resistance and durability.
Suggestions
  • Higher pressure would be applied on the concrete form surface during self pressing as compared standard concrete; therefore, sound concrete form structure should be formed in especially vertical forms.
