Roller-compacted concrete, or RCC, takes its name from the construction method used to build it. It is placed with conventional asphalt paving equipment, and then compacted with rollers. RCC has the same basic ingredient as conventional concrete but, unlike conventional concrete, it's a drier mix and stiff enough to be compacted by vibratory rollers. It needs neither forms nor finishing, nor does it contain dowels or steel reinforcing. It offers three basic benefits for industrial pavement: low cost, high strength and rapid construction. Roller compacted concrete offers owners the strength to withstand heavy loads, the durability to resist freeze thaw damage and the low cost to be competitive.
RCC is becoming popular for use in virtually any type of industrial or heavy duty pavement. RCC has the strength, durability and low maintenance cost of concrete plus the economy and simplicity of asphalt.
