This close-up shows the solid consistency of Cor-Tuf UHPC, making the beam impermeable to moisture. While the fine-grained nature of the mix allows for a variety of finishing and decorative possibilities, Cor-Tuf has 10 times the compressive strength of traditional concrete. A variety of mix techniques can result in 50,000 psi or higher.
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.
