This view “inside” the “H” shows the beam’s smooth surface. Cor-Tuf hardens within two to three hours and can be handled in eight hours following a pour. Half-strength is produced in five to seven days; full curing is obtained in 28 days. Additional strength can be achieved with increased temperature, steam, or both during curing.

Cor-Tuf UHPC, the first and only licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world, is making it easier
As we continue to complete more projects with our proprietary Ultra-High Performance Concrete mix design, we are thrilled to see that Cor-Tuf UHPC continues to meet and even exceed our expectations. In our latest project, we demonstrated the advantages of using Cor-Tuf UHPC in a typical bridge closure project.
At Cor-Tuf, we are committed to continuing to push the boundaries of what concrete can do. For example, we recently introduced our 18”x18”x100’ Cor-Tuf Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) square piling to the market.
We have written in the past about some of the revolutionary uses for Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in bridges, overlays, and other major infrastructure projects. While these are still valuable applications for UHPC, we want to shift our attention and expand your view on when UHPC is an ideal choice.
