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.
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
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 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 conventional UHPC mix?
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.
What makes a good building material? In our opinion, it must be strong and durable; light, with minimum design constraints; easily installed and compatible with common techniques; and long-lasting, created from the start to protect against damage.
At Cor-Tuf, we’ve been using classic ready-mix techniques with our Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) for some time. One of our latest projects was completing a ready-mix bridge overlay job in upstate New York to demonstrate how easy UHPC is as part of everyday construction.
Concrete is the foundation of modern construction. Its strength and durability enables it to support heavy structures over long periods of time. Compressive strength is the prominent concrete specification, but tensile, flexural, and other properties can play a significant role in modern designs.
