In the field of concrete repair, the requirement for a heritage oriented redevelopment is increasing. A disadvantage of previous solutions is that the often required original textures of listed concrete building surfaces/facades cannot be produced. One solution is the application of the here presented Polymer-modified Self-Compacting Concrete (PSCC). Due to the special mix design of the material, the required properties of a repair material, such as a low Young’s modulus, improved bond strength and customized pigmentation can be met specifically. Due to the self-compacting properties, it is possible to imitate formwork textures similar to the original surfaces, also in thin layers.
