G•ROCK Ultra-High Performance Concrete (UHPC) is an advanced, very-high-density fiber reinforced mineral concrete that delivers ultra-high compressive and flexural strength with exceptional elastic and ductile performance. It’s ductility under tension is similar to steel and designed to deform under high tensile stress without failing. This makes possible much longer, thinner and lighter self-supporting structural precast and 3D printed elements; as well as graceful and innovative architectural forms not possible with lesser concretes and building materials.
G•ROCK is extremely durable and essentially immune to the severe life-cycle limiting flaws of lesser concretes. G•ROCK built products are expected to have extended service lives, resulting in less environmental impact over time and low-to-no life-cycle costs — MIT estimates UHPC has a 16,000 year life cycle.
If you’re a builder…What would the following value points mean to your bottom line and competitive advantage?
If you’re a built asset owner…You know concrete’s many defects have a huge impact on the appearance, maintenance costs, safety and effective life of your built assets. Concrete defects cost building and critical infrastructure owners billions in annual losses.
What would it mean to you if your concrete built assets were virtually immune to these defects and economic losses?
