Ultra High Performance Concrete –UHPC-
Durcrete deals with the most extraordinary concrete of the future: Ultra High Performance Concrete or UHPC for short.
Main applications for Ultra High Performance Concrete are in the construction business as well as machine industry. In the construction industry, the high-tech-concrete is mainly used for cladding façades, bridges, wind towers and applications which require a high resistance. In machinery business, machine tools and testing tables are made with UHPC mineral cast. Welded steel construction are filled with our high strength casting compound durfill.
Machine Beds Made Of UHPC
Machine beds, handling units, testing tables and other technical applications make use of the extraordinary damping characteristic of the material. The pure mineral, non-combustible mix can be poured into many forms. The unique quality ‘E80’ has a young´s modulus like aluminium. Embedded parts like steel rails or threaded sleeves are cast in. In a downstream processing step, the components are machined to highest precision by grinding the concrete or by milling the embedded steel plates. Manufacturing takes place in specialized production plants within Europe or China. The machine beds are designed object-specific and individually. The work includes mold construction, embedded parts, coating and precision machining.
Durfill Casting Compound
The casting compound durfill is the solution for your hybrid or sandwich constructions. Vibrations are damped and the natural frequencies selectively influenced when welded sheet steel or cast iron beds are filled with this self compacting casting compound. The processing can take place either in the welding shop or during precision machining. Durfill is delivered as a ready dry-mix in paper bags. After mixing it with water, it can be pumped into the component. The cement-bound mineral cast durfill can be processed as a Do-It-Yourself material by the customer. We also connect qualified manufacturing shops which produce the complete machine component including precision machining, coating and assembling.
For the simple production of UHPC durcrete and Dyckerhoff GmbH have developed an innovative puzzolanic, mineral concrete additive. It enhances strength, density and durability. The concrete remains pumpable and sprayable, the mixture is not sticky and no special mixers are required. The grey powder substitutes silica fume, metakaoline and similar concrete additives. UHPC-Additive simplifies production of every kind of high strength concrete produced in prefab as well as ready-mix-plants and is also used in dry mortar mixes. The binder is classified as cement, produced in Germany and is delivered with controlled quality. A safe and simple solution. We deliver UHPC-Additive in all countries outside Europe.
