Welcome to Steelike® UHPC, UHPC Powered by Innovation™

Steelike® UHPC is an advanced ultra-high performance concrete with a unique all-white color. First commercialized in 2014, Steelike® UHPC is backed by decades of research and development. The chemistry behind Steelike® UHPC means Steelike® UHPC provides significantly greater strength and durability than conventional concretes and high-performance concretes. It is enhanced by a number of unique flexible and innovative options for mixing and placement.

We invite you to explore the website and learn more about the strength, durability, and flexibility of Steelike® UHPC.

Let’s Talk about How We Can Work with You.

Advantages of UHPC

Unsurpassed Compressive Strength

The high compressive and tensile properties of UHPC also facilitate a high bond strength, allowing shorter length of rebar embedment in applications such as closure pours between precast elements.

Unmatched Durability

UHPC was designed to be significantly stronger and more durable than conventional concrete and this has been proven by its performance over time.

Unparalleled Resistance to Freeze/Thaw

Because UHPC is prepared in the controlled, contained environment of a ready-mix truck, changing weather does not compromise the product. Its low permeability reduces water ingress enhancing resistance to the effects of freeze and thaw.

Unique White Color of Steelike® UHPC

The use of fine materials for the matrix also provides a dense, smooth surface valued for its aesthetics and ability to closely transfer form details to the hardened surface. The white color of Steelike® UHPC significantly improves color matching.

Steelike® UHPC Facilitates Self-Performance in Placement

Excellent Performance

Steelike® UHPC offers significantly greater compressive strength, tensile response, ductility, bond strength and durability than market leading concretes.

Steelike® UHPC has been consistently proven to meet or exceed performance standards for UHPC as stipulated by States Departments of Transportation (DOTs), as well as Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) performance specifications.

Enhances Productivity

Only Steelike® UHPC can be routinely and confidently prepared in standard concrete ready-mix trucks. This eliminates costs associated with setting up a mobile batching facility and/or for renting expensive equipment.

Only Steelike® UHPC eliminates complexities and costs to allow increased project productivity.

Expands Applications

Steelike® UHPC mix designs are versatile and may be formulated to meet specific performance requirements for a multitude of applications.

Applications using Steelike® UHPC include: bridge overlays, connections for precast deck panels, steel column encasements, precast and prestressed girders, bridge joint replacements and more.

See the Steelike® UHPC difference below by sliding the ready-mix truck icon left and right.

This presents an example of a typical bridge deck overlay project mixing in ready-mix trucks and discharging directly to the deck using the innovative cost-effective processes developed for Steelike® UHPC versus the traditional practices of placing UHPC.
