What is Ultra-High-Performance Fibre-Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC)?


UHPC, ultra-strong concrete

UHPC is stronger than both conventional concrete and high-performance concrete (HPC). The properties of UHPC include better durability, guaranteeing increased strength. Strengthened with high-performance steel and cement fibres, UHPC offers excellent resistance to cracking, impacts and abrasion.

Generally speaking, fibre-reinforced concrete is easier to process than ordinary concrete, and it is also lighter. UHPC has also been shown to be highly resistant to various tensile and bending movements. Concrete has undergone many changes over the years. The quality of the concrete is therefore essential in preventing visual damage and vandalism.  


The advantages of UHPC

UHPC has many advantages: 

  • High resistance to abrasion and impacts
  • High density
  • Fire resistant
  • Durability
  • Low permeability
  • High surface hardness
  • Resistance to micro-cracking
