62 • March 2017 FEATURE SHOW REPORT A year removed from W.R. Grace & Co. ties, GCP arrives at ConEx- po-Con/Agg with the Verifi V4 in-transit, concrete mix management system; an admixture platform yielding high slump mixes at com- petitive cost; a complete admixture and fiber offfering for shotcrete; and, new admixtures for aggregates management. With truck-mounted sensors, Verifi V4 provides automated pro- cess monitoring and control from the ready mixed plant to the jobsite. "The system offers a new level of visibility into concrete properties and helps increase product consistency from one truck to the next," says GCP Specialty Construction Chemicals Vice Presi- dent, Global Marketing Craig Merrill. "The technology establishes a new market segment in the concrete industry, allowing producers, contractors and other stakeholders to reduce rejected loads, increase jobsite efficiency and minimize costly project delays … We are at the leading edge of translating science into solutions to address customer problems." The new Control Flow Concrete technology delivers the con- sistency and reliability of conventional concrete and offers the advantages of self-consolidating mixes without the quality control issues. The Tytro admixture and fiber portfolio brings value to shot- crete tunneling and mining applications. — GCP Applied Technologies Inc., Cambridge, Mass., Booth S60728 GCP APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES
