ULTRA HIGH PERFORMANCE CONCRETE

Steelike UHPC provides the strength of steel. The break-through chemistry behind Steelike UHPC means Steelike provides greater strength by volume than conventional concretes and high-performing concretes. The durability of Steelike significantly exceeds conventional UHPC

WHAT IS IT

UHPC is an ultra-high-performance concrete that exceeds significantly the performance of conventional, high-performance, and
very-high-performance concretes and grouts, with significantly greater compressive and tensile strengths, ductility, bond strength
and durability.


UHPC is formulated from fine granular particles with a very low water-to-cementitious materials ratio, which results in a dense matrix with a discontinuous pore structure, leading to extremely low permeability.

The low permeability provides extreme resistance against water and chloride ingress,freeze-thaw damage, and chemical attack.

APPLICATIONS

UHPC is the result of nearly two decades of research and development and has been used for a wide variety of applications including bridge deck overlays, connections for precast deck panels for accelerated bridge deck replacement, precast/prestressed girders, repair of connections between precast concrete beams, steel column repairs, bridge joint header replacements, and architectural elements. 

 

Other construction applications include but are not limited to cladding panels, blast- and impact-resistant panels, precast piles, precast columns and pylons, tunnel liners, protection against caustic environments and salt spray zones.

UNIQUE ATTRIBUTES

UHPC is all white and can be color-modified to suit project needs.  It is dry packaged and can be reliably mixed with a variety of mixing equipment including ready-mix trucks for larger volume projects.

 

The 100% pre-blended dry mix reduces the need to measure ingredients on site and results in greater uniformity and predictability of the fresh and cured material properties.It works with a variety of time-saving placement capabilities unique to UHPC. 

 

These capablities include direct-discharging from ready-mix trucks, flush-forming deck-level UHPC connections, curing deck overlays without covering the overlays with plastic sheeting, and pumping and spraying UHPC,

CONCRETE SLABS

  • 75% thinner than traditional concrete pads.

  • 75% lighter than traditional concrete pads, making them

  • easy to install and remove due to reduced weight.

  • Highly efficient for transportation, allowing you to carry

  • 3-6 times more concrete pads than conventional ones.

  • Exceptional durability: Does not crack and withstands
    extreme low and high temperatures.

  • The colder the temperature, the harder it becomes.

  • Available in various masking colors to suit different
    applications.

  • Multi-use: Used concrete pads can be
    repurposed to construct temporary structures, including
    force protection elements or buildings for combat

  • training exercises.

WALLS FOR TEMP STRUCTURES

  • Versatile design: Can be molded for various structures,
    including window and door openings.

  • Convenient transportation and reusability:

  • Easily stacked on trucks for transport and can be reused.

  • Longevity: Provides up to 50 life cycles for extended use.

  • Durable and weather-resistant:

  • Highly resistant to rust and various weather conditions.

  • Easy maintenance: Simple to clean and maintain.

  • Enhanced security: Steel-concrete construction offers
    increased resistance to ballistic impact.

  • Crack-free performance: Maintains structural
    integrity without cracking.

  • Multi-purpose use: Walls can be repurposed as temporary road pads when needed.

CONCRETE BUNKERS

  • The walls and weight are 75% thinner compared to
    traditional concrete.

  • Easily moldable into any desired shape.

  • Bullet-resistant.

  • Convenient for transportation and demobilization.

  • Reusable for up to 50 times.

  • Mass production is achievable in a minimal
    amount of time.

  • No need for the steel concrete to dry extensively
    to harden(a couple of hours are sufficient).

ROAD REPAIRS

  • Quickly restore roads constructed with asphalt,
    concrete pads, or compacted gravel.

  • Apply a durable surface layer that resists cracking
    in extreme temperatures.

  • The new surface can withstand heavy traffic.

  • Since it demands minimal equipment and labor,
    these repairs can be executed in remote,
    hard-to-reach areas, even in forested regions.
