Ready to pour? Speak to a concrete professional today.

Cor-Tuf UHPC (CT25) is a class of concrete that is exceptionally strong and durable. Originally developed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it combines form and function with strength and resiliency. 

Cor-Tuf CT25 is our standard material formation. CT25 is a highly versatile mix that can be used as a direct replacement for standard concrete. It is compatible with all industry standard production techniques, ranging from large scale precast facilities down to small, cast-in-place applications. This includes (but is not limited to):

  • Pre- and post-tensioned structure component construction
  • Precast panels
  • Field-cast structural connections
  • Wear surface overlays
  • Marine installations
  • Injection and extrusion techniques
  • Tilt-up construction
  • Blast and corrosion resistance
  • Cast-in-place joints
Constituents, Packaging, and Yield

Our pre-mix contains proprietary pre-blended constituents, local masonry sand, and portland cement per QC manual. Complete pre-mix (with sand and cement) available upon request. Our liquid admixture acts as a corrosion inhibitor and a high range water reducer, resulting in an impermeable UHPC mix. Our steel fibers measure 0.008 inches (0.20 mm) in diameter and are 0.5 inches (13 mm) long. Not included in pre-mix. Water will be provided by the contractor in accordance with QC manual.

See our Product Data Sheet for additional details on delivery quantities, measurements, and yields.

Batching

CT25 is highly versatile and can be batched in a variety of solutions ranging from high yield, industrial applications down to single yard solutions. However, high-shear mixers are recommended to properly batch CT25. Cor-Tuf is available to consult prior to batching for evaluation of equipment.

Please refer to the Product Data Sheet for more information on batching protocols.

Long-Term Cost Savings

Cor-Tuf UHPC provides dramatically improved life cycle costs. Choosing CT25 for your project results in the following savings:

  • Construction can be completed quicker with prefabricated UHPC elements. 
  • Less material is required for construction, resulting in a lower gross weight.
  • Size and complexity of footing and support requirements are reduced.
  • Extended longevity virtually eliminates maintenance costs and drastically extends the life of the product. 
  • Durability and resistance to natural forces such as freeze/thaw cycles, storms, and water damage provides extensive life cycle savings over time.
Long-Term Cost Savings

Cor-Tuf UHPC is the ultimate material for low impact design, dramatically reducing life cycle costs. When compared to steel, Cor-Tuf UHPC is more cost-effective and durable, making it the superior choice. Choosing C25 for your project results in the following savings:

  • Construction can be completed faster with prefabricated UHPC elements
  • Less material is required for construction, reducing transportation and machinery costs
  • Sizing and complexity of footing and support requirements are reduced
  • Extended longevity virtually eliminates maintenance costs and supports environmental conservation
  • Durability and resistance to natural forces such as freeze/thaw cycles, storms, and water damage provides extensive life cycle savings over time.
