We have written in the past about some of the revolutionary uses for Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in bridges, overlays, and other major infrastructure projects. While these are still valuable applications for UHPC, we want to shift our attention and expand your view on when UHPC is an ideal choice.
At Cor-Tuf, we are always looking for ways to test and maximize the characteristics of our proprietary Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC). We have already shown through previous tests the amazing strength and durability benefits of this new concrete technology. We have also shown the advantages of Cor-Tuf UHPC over other conventional UHPC concrete mixes.
Most of us in the construction industry are very familiar with pilings. Two of the most common types of piles are concrete piles and steel piles. While these two types of piles are very different, each offers certain advantages over the other.
Disturbing as it may be, security is something we now grapple with on a daily basis. Protection from both intruders and blasts have now become part of the planning and design process in many infrastructure projects, from buildings to bridges and beyond.
At the Capital Grille restaurant, there is a side dish on the menu called Lobster Mac 'N' Cheese. For $20, you can get an order to your table delivered in a small cast-iron skillet
As the advantages of Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) become more well-known in the concrete and construction industries, it becomes even more important for builders and contractors to learn about the differences between the various UHPC products on the market. One may think that there are only slight nuances between one mix of UHPC versus another,
Cor-Tuf UHPC is excited to announce it has formalized an agreement with Precast Systems Engineering, LLC to help in the advancement of Ultra-High Performance Concrete. Cor-Tuf is the exclusive licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world. Cor-Tuf UHPC is an extremely strong and durable new concrete material
Cor-Tuf UHPC is a proprietary UHPC mix that overcomes all of the barriers associated with conventional UHPC products. It can be mixed, transported, and poured just as you would traditional concrete—even using the same machinery. But what does this mean for your next concrete project? Are there additional benefits to choosing Cor-Tuf UHPC over a
Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is a cementitious, concrete material that has a minimum specified compressive strength of 21,500 pounds per square inch (psi). UHPC is stronger and more resilient than traditional concrete due to fibers that are integrated into the mix. Fibers vary from polyester to steel and stainless steel, with different types of fibers
Technology plays a bigger role in our lives every day, and it is no different for the concrete industry. Contractors and construction companies know they must embrace new concrete technology in order to survive. Reasons include climbing construction costs, the always-increasing need for improvements in efficiency, and a shortage of skilled labor. A recent US
