Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)

Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) is a zero slump concrete that is placed like asphalt. RCC has the same basic ingredients as normal concrete, except RCC is a much drier mix. For road construction the mix is placed through a conventional or a high-density paver and similar to asphalt, is then compacted with a vibratory roller. The mix is so stiff that the vibratory roller can begin compacting immediately behind the paver. RCC requires NO forms, finishing or steel reinforcing. RCC can be placed and compacted in one lift, unlike asphalt, which is a multi-lift operation.

RCC is also much stronger than asphalt and can be placed thinner to achieve the desired load carrying capability. This labor and thickness reduction combined with the competitive initial material cost compared to asphalt makes RCC extremely cost effective. Properly placed and cured RCC will not have any potholes, rutting, or shoving and can span soft localized soft subgrades. Our mix design consistently breaks over 8,000 psi compressive strength and 800 – 900 psi flexural strength. RCC will not deform under heavy concentrated loads and will not soften under high temperatures. Sagamore Ready Mix offers a base mix, which works great for base and binder asphalt replacement and can be surfaced with asphalt if desired. We also offer a surface mix design, which is made up of smaller aggregates for enhanced smoothness.

  • Sagamore Ready Mix of Fishers, IN produced this 8,000 psi Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) mix. The RCC is being placed by Calumet Civil Contractors utilizing their High Density Paver. The high density paver compacted the mix to 92% density before a roller was applied to achieve final compaction. RCC is being used to replace the base and binder layers of asphalt for this residential subdivision in Fishers, IN. An asphalt surface will be applied at a later date.
