Improve the workability and sustainability of SCC with Exilva

Borregaard's Exilva® cellulose fibrils enhance self-compacting concrete (SCC) by minimising segregation and bleeding while maintaining cohesion and homogeneity. Improved workability and sustainability makes Exilva a unique rheology modifier for SCC.

Benefits offered:

  • Enhanced stability and cohesion
  • Improved workability
  • Rheological benefits
  • Reduced cost
  • Sustainable/Environmentally friendly

Enhanced Stability and Cohesion

Exilva enhances the stability and cohesion of self-compacting concrete (SCC) by forming a robust cellulose fibril network that reduces segregation and bleeding. This ensures consistent mix quality and uniformity during pouring and placement

Improved Workability

Exilva improves SCC workability by enhancing flowability without compromising stability. This allows for easier placement and filling of complex forms and congested reinforcement areas, reducing labour and time.

Rheological Benefits

Exilva provides significant rheological benefits to SCC, enhancing viscosity control and flow properties. This ensures consistent performance during pumping and placement, reducing the risk of blockages and improving overall handling.

Reduced Cost

By improving stability, cohesion, and workability, Exilva reduces labour costs associated with concrete placement and finishing. Its efficiency also minimises the need for additional additives or adjustments, saving on material costs.

Sustainable/Environmentally friendly

Exilva is a sustainable alternative to synthetic products that will help reduce the environmental footprint of SCC mix design. It is derived from natural, renewable sources and contributes to lower CO2 emissions, aligning with sustainable construction practices and environmental regulations.
