CEM-Pave Roller Compacted Concrete

CEMEX CEM-Pave Roller compacted concrete (RCC) is an innovative, value engineered pavement, combining the strength and durability of concrete with ease of construction of an asphalt.

Pavement Uses/Applications
 Port facilities  Industrial roads & parks  Airport taxiways & hardstanding   Car Parking

Product Description

CEM-Pave 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 of up to 30% 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. CEM-Pave 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 CEM-Pave 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 standard asphalt pavers and compacted with 10 ton rollers similar to the way hot mix asphalt is placed.
