Self-compacting concrete (SCC) ? a technology that has been available in South Africa for about 10 years ? has the amazing ability to flow into complex shapes and penetrate inaccessible spots as well as achieving high strengths and high quality surface finishes. These characteristics would be nearly impossible to achieve without the addition of admixtures in the concrete mix, particularly the so-called ‘new generation’ super-plasticisers.
