What are the limitations?

  • Aesthetics – RCC does not have the same appearance as other types of concrete. It is NOT as pretty and smooth as regular concrete.
  • Rougher Surface Texture – The mix design and construction methods that make roller compacted concrete so fast, easy, cheap, and durable also create a surface texture that gives it a characteristic coarse finish.
  • Limited to low-speed traffic – Due to the nature of its surface, RCC is not appropriate for all types of traffic. Vehicles traveling at high speeds would experience a bumpy ride. That makes it better for applications where strength and durability are needed instead of speed.
