Key features and benefits are listed below.

• Readily Available
• Easy to deliver
• Ready mix trucks can deliver any amount necessary to the job sight

• Depending on the type and location of the void, flowable may be placed by
conveyor, chute, pump, or bucket
• Since it is self-leveling, little or no spreading is needed
• Versatile
• Flowable fill mix designs can be adjusted to meet specific fill requirements
• May be excavated
• With compressive strengths as low as 50 to 100 psi, flowable fill may be easily
excavated with conventional digging equipment
• Requires less inspection
• Won’t settle
• Reduces excavating
• Trenches don’t need to handle compaction equipment
• Improves worker safety
• Workers can place flowable fill without entering the void
• Allows construction in all weather
• Flowable fill displaces standing water. May also be heated like ready mix concrete
• Reduces equipment needs
• Requires no storage on a job site
• Makes use of fly ash, a waste by-product
