Concrete is prone to a variety of issues that may arise from poor construction or standard weathering. Many defects can be avoided by proper mixing and placement, but others remain likely to occur within a typical service life. Regular inspections are therefore recommended to detect and document conditions over time.
Concrete spalling is symptomatic of processes going on inside the concrete which are very damaging. Spalling is very often the result of pressure building up inside the concrete because of chemical reactions taking place with the concrete itself.
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.
Municipalities are looking for ways to reduce costs and their administrative burden. Without a streamlined procurement process, purchasing basic goods and services to keep operations running can be negatively impacted by various proposals, approvals, cost optimization, and contractor due diligence.
Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is known for superior strength and durability. Its headlines have typically been about large infrastructure projects such as multi-lane bridges or building piers, but any size of project can benefit from the properties of UHPC.
The strength and durability of ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) are valuable for a variety of applications, from repairing aging structures to creating efficient new designs. UHPC is championed by transportation departments and trade groups (including the U.S. Federal Highway Administration) for its ability to work in situations where traditional concrete is less suitable.
