Smart Dynamic Construction
The Smart Dynamic Construction concept consists of a robust mix design, a tailor-made Glenium® superplasticizer and the new and unique RheoMATRIX, a BASF exclusive, state-of-the-art Viscosity Modifying Agent (VMA) as the key element of this revolutionary concept. Due to the smart and self-organizing molecules of RheoMATRIX, concrete mix designs can now be optimized to a unique extent to achieve unmatched performance levels. In fact, it creates a new concrete generation which combines the benefits of traditionally vibrated concrete with those of self-compacting concrete and is easy to produce and robust in every day use: Smart Dynamic Concrete.
The Smart Dynamic Construction concept is suitable to upgrade to high slump concretes to a higher performance level with self-compacting characteristics and is as easy to produce as standard concrete.
It allows the ready-mix industry to reach better construction process economy, higher concrete durability and increased energy efficiency in order to save time and money and reduce CO2 emissions. It is not recommended as a substitute for typical SCC applications.
RheoMATRIX is the essential component of the Smart Dynamic Construction concept. It consists of a water soluble polymer which modifies the rheological properties of the concrete mix. Thanks to its tailored mode of action, RheoMATRIX brings a level of viscosity to the mix that allows the right balance between fluidity, passing ability and resistance to segregation – apparently opposing properties – to be achieved.
