UHPC or Ultra-High Performance Concrete is an advanced class of concrete that offers new opportunities in construction.
One of the most notable differences between conventional concrete and UHPC is the compressive strength.
UHPC has a compressive strength upward of 120 mega-Pascal at 28 days, compared to the range of 20-50 mega-Pascal at 28 days for normal concrete.
The high strength properties allow designing thin, complex shapes, curvatures, and highly customized textures.
However, the high compressive strength is not the only advantage of UHPC.
The product has extremely high durability due to a dense structure. The dense structure reduces permeability and potential corrosion. It allows the use of UHPC successfully for bridges, off-shore structures, marine anchors, seismic structures, oil and gas application, and many others.
