Cor-Tuf®️ UHPC, the exclusive licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world is bringing Cor-Tuf UHPC into mainstream production with its groundbreaking UHPC mobile batch plant. Now Cor-Tuf UHPC can be used by contractors anywhere and everywhere, under any conditions.
Believe it or not, concrete overlays have been in use in the U.S. for more than a century, with the first use dating back to the early 1900’s. Concrete overlays were first used to build new highways and roads in our country, but later on the focus changed to using overlays as a cost-effective way to extend the life of roads and bridges that were past their prime.
If you’ve ever wondered, “What is the difference between concrete and cement?” you’re in luck.
The terms concrete and cement are often used interchangeably. But the truth is, they are not the same. In fact, that “cement” truck many of us refer to on a job site is actually a misnomer—it is really a “concrete” truck.
Concrete is used by contractors and builders for bridges and seawalls due to its strength and durability. Unfortunately, seawalls made of traditional concrete are not immune to the effects of seawater, and bridges constructed of regular concrete are proving to be incapable of withstanding the damaging winds and forces of hurricanes and other strong storms.
Cor-Tuf UHPC chairman Douglas Darling is adamant that the Miami condo collapse didn’t have to happen. “People didn’t need to die,” says Darling. “New, available concrete technology is impervious to water and chemicals, and can be used to repair failing, traditional concrete, and to build new structures that will not fail.”
By now we all know that traditional concrete doesn’t last. The recent Miami condo collapse is terrible proof that a building, a bridge—or any other structure made out of traditional concrete—can and will fail.
Cor-Tuf®️ UHPC, the exclusive licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world, is the ideal material to use in the Federal Government’s proposed $2 trillion plan to rehabilitate and upgrade the American infrastructure. And, thanks to our latest innovation—our UHPC mobile batch plant—Cor-Tuf UHPC can now be used anywhere and everywhere, without any special considerations or accommodations.
The Federal Government has been putting a lot of emphasis on its proposed U.S infrastructure plan. The plan calls for a $2 trillion investment to repair the country’s damaged infrastructure, combat climate change, and create jobs.
