Ultra High Performance Concrete, or UHPC, is one of the latest advances in concrete technology, and it addresses the shortcomings of many concretes today: It provides high strength to weight ratio, high tensile strength, high ductility, and volume stability. It has a compressive strength 2 to 3 times greater than conventional concrete and a flexural strength 2 to 6 times greater.
Benefits to the physical property and performance: design of the furniture and architectural elements will be more flexible to satisfy aesthetic perception and structural consideration. These benefits are difficult or impossible to achieve with traditional reinforced concrete elements. Designers such as Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid and Rudy Ricciotti utilise UHPC to create building facades, stair features and unique products. We are showing you to see what is possible with this beautiful material. In future, we trust, UHPC is putting concrete furniture on steroids.
