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
Cor-Tuf UHPC is excited to announce it 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 developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (US patent No. US 8016938 B2) to fill a demand for
If you’re in the construction industry, chances are you have some experience with off-site construction. In fact, a recent study by the National Institute of Building Sciences (NIBIS) found that more than 87 percent of respondents used off-site construction to some extent in 2018. And, more than 81 percent plan to use the method the
Concrete is considered by many to be a strong and durable material, and rightfully so. But there are different ways to assess concrete strength.
Tilt-up construction is one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, with more than 15 percent of industrial buildings in the US built with this method. It’s no surprise that this innovative method of construction is becoming so popular; there are many advantages in terms of cost and time on any given project.
There are 614,387 bridges in the United States, and almost 40 percent of them are more than 50 years old. Many of these bridges are showing their age, with more than 9 percent of bridges classified as structurally deficient according to the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) 2017 Infrastructure Report Card.
Every Day Counts (EDC) is a program started by the US Department of Transportation Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) to encourage innovation in transportation construction projects at the state and local levels.
The global Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) market is expected to reach $1.9 billion by 2025 as it grows in popularity. One of the many ways UHPC is transforming the concrete and construction industries is its exceptional bonding quality. This is being put to good use in steel-reinforced concrete, with UHPC drastically increasing the life of
