This film introduces Gallapave RCC, a zero-slump concrete that is compacted by vibratory rollers.
- Up to 5000m2 can be laid in one day
- No formwork is required
- No need for reinforcing steel
- No finishing – as it has a rolled finish, similar to fine rolled asphalt
The surface texture of RCC is smooth and suitable for parking, materials handling and road pavements, where the traffic speeds are relatively low (< 60 km/hour).
RCC can be designed to achieve compressive and flexural strengths comparable to pavement quality concrete and may be regarded for pavement design purposes as unreinforced concrete.
Gallapave RCC is part of the new Gallapave range, which includes Gallapave HBM (Hydraulically Bound Mixtures) which can be used in roads and pavements as a structural cement bound layer. It can reduced construction costs by up to 25% and lead to less excavated material going to landfill as the construction waste is reduced.
