 Self-Consolidating Concrete - Visual Stability Index (VSI)

       A visual tool to assist concrete producers in consistently applying the Visual Stability Index (VSI) to concrete production. The VSI was originally developed by BASF as a reference when producing self-consolidating concrete. The stability of self-consolidating concrete can be observed visually by examining the concrete mass and therefore can be used for quality control of self-consolidating mixtures.

 Self-Consolidating Grout - For Reinforced Concrete Masonry Walls

       Self-consolidating grout (SCG) is a highly-fluid and stable mixture used in low-lift and high-lift grouting of reinforced concrete masonry walls.

 Successful Hot Weather Concreting

       This guide has been developed by BASF to assist the entire construction team (owners, specifiers, contractors, and ready-mixed concrete producers) in the design, production, delivery, placement and curing of quality concrete in hot weather.

 SCC Mixture Optimization - Innovative Computer Software

       The tool was developed based on research and extensive studies in concrete and SCC technology. This mixture optimization tool has been successfully used to improve the performance and cost efficiency of SCC used on multiple projects in Australia, Thailand, Sweden, New Zealand and the United States.

 Water-Repellent Admixture Certification Program - Performance Optimization, Evaluation and Quality Control
