Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) or Self-Compacting Concrete, as it's sometimes known, arrived as a revolution in the field of concrete technology. The concept was proposed by Professor Hajime Okamura of Kochi University of Technology, Japan, in 1986 as a solution to the growing durability concerns of the Japanese government. During his research, Okamura found that the main cause of the poor durability performances of Japanese concrete in structures was the inadequate consolidation of the concrete in the casting operations. By developing concrete that self-consolidated, he eliminated the main cause for the poor durability performance of their concrete. By 1988, the concept was developed and ready for the first real-scale tests. UNIBETON is one of the few companies in the U.A.E recognized internationally as pioneers with the ability to design, produce and verify Self-Compacting Concrete (SCC) -- an innovative concept in concrete, which has proved to be economically and environmentally viable in modern day construction activities, for the following reasons:
 Faster construction
 Better surface finishes
 Improved durability factor
 Safer work environment
 Less pollution
 Less manpower on site
 Easier placing
 Reduced noise level due to absence of vibration.

Under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Nahyan and in association with the UAE Society of Engineers -- UNIBETON organized an International Symposium on "Self-Compacting Concrete" in March 2001. Delegates from several countries presented their papers on the 'state-of-art' technology of Self-Compacting Concrete.
UNIBETON's Head of Research & Development Center was quoted as saying:"The production of Self-Compacting Concrete seems relatively easy; however to be able to produce it commercially with persistent success requires a lot of effort and stringent quality control of the constituents and the mixing process". Our supply of more than 120,000m3 of Self-Compacting Concrete to prestigious projects illustrates our advancement in technology and capacity to evolve accordingly.
