CCT’s non-shrinking flowable fill is outperforming every product on the market
The innovative cement experts at Cellular Concrete Technologies (CCT) are once again creating groundbreaking answers to the question, “How can we make concrete that is better for builders and buildings?” CCT has crafted an air-entrainment system that far exceeds the capabilities of anything else on the global market, and now they are introducing a breakthrough in flowable fill.
Time and time again the Stable Air system has proven to be the answer to the construction industry’s call for highly effective, lower cost, environmentally sound materials. Says Eric Stovner, LEED AP of Breiholz Qazi Engineering, “Stable Air Cellular Concrete Technology is Green, providing both long-term and immediate sustainable benefits and cost savings.”
While air-entrainment in concrete dates as far back as the 1930s, few changes had been made to the process and lack of precision in lightweight concrete production — until recently. With CCT’s patented Stable Air technology, air volume from batch design introduction through mixing, transit, placement and finishing can be maintained within 2 percent — an unprecedented accomplishment. What’s more, Stable Air(R) increases freeze/thaw damage protection, reduces weight while maintaining strength, resists water damage and mold, optimizes workability and flowability and produces a non-shrinking flowable fill. Non-toxic and biodegradable, this “green” technology finally makes eco-friendly construction easy and affordable.
CCT’s non-shrinking flowable fill is outperforming every product on the market. Standard fill mixes max out at 35% air; since the rest of the mix relies on sand, a typical pour can only go up to 4 feet without collapsing in on itself from its own weight. But flowable fill made with Stable Air can take up to 80% air and reach over 10 feet in a single pour. And while most flowable fill batch designs are mixed at a 40-to-1 ratio, Stable Air flowable fill can be mixed at 120-to-1. That means 3-times less foaming agent can produce the same amount of fill. These are feats that architects and contractors have been anxious to accomplish for years, but without an abundance of options they’ve been reluctant to try — until now.
