Project Support for All Applications of UHPC

At Steelike Inc., we develop innovative smart tools that can increase project efficiencies, minimize waste and emissions, and improve ease of use for work crews. Only Steelike® UHPC offers on-site and off-site preparation options. Steelike UHPC can be delivered directly to your project pre-mixed and ready to place. This feature allows contractors to focus on their job and what they do best.

Transportation Infrastructure (Automobile, Rail, and Maritime Traffic)

UHPC is the answer to concerns about highway infrastructure deterioration, repair and replacement. The remarkable durability of UHPC, supported in part by its resistance to freeze/thaw conditions and its resistance to water ingress, translates to significantly lower costs over time.

Building Infrastructure (Cladding / Façade Panels, Beams, Sheer Walls, Slabs)

Steelike® UHPC is significantly more powerful per cubic yard than conventional concretes. For this reason, architects may incorporate design features that are not possible with other concrete products. With Steelike UHPC, panels for cladding may be larger and thinner yet offering strength like steel.

Water / Wastewater Infrastructure

Advantages of UHPC include: ability to construct thin sections and use complex structural forms, elimination of passive reinforcement (reinforcement bars), precise replication, use of conventional concrete equipment, ability to cast by pouring, injection or extrusion techniques, self-consolidation, off-site manufacturing, fast construction and reduced maintenance. The high density / low permeability of Steelike UHPC significantly reduces risk of water ingress and associated degradation and damage.

Energy Infrastructure

The UHPC advantages include: significantly better performance in terms of strength, ductility, flexibility and toughness, impact resistance, dimensional stability, durability / increased useful life, impermeability / freeze/thaw resistance, corrosion resistance, abrasion resistance, aggressive environment resistance and chemical resistance.

Architecture and Decorative

As with other UHPCs, Steelike UHPC achieves exceptional strength and durability of performance with significantly less volume than conventional concrete. The resulting benefit is that UHPCs, especially Steelike UHPC, are lighter in weight and more conducive for use in architectural design applications such as cladding.

Defense

The compressive strength and tensile resistance of UHPC have led to its use for security and blast mitigation for critical infrastructure. Studies have shown that UHPC concrete slabs demonstrate improved damage tolerance.

When You Choose Steelike® UHPC,

Reduces Complexity & Costs

One of the most costly aspects of UHPC use is on-the-job-site preparation. For conventional UHPC mix designs, product mixing requires a team of highly skilled individuals, good weather conditions and the rental of expensive equipment. With Steelike, there are no costs for set up of a mobile batching facility, for rental of expensive equipment or for a large team of highly skilled individuals. Only Steelike eliminates  complexities and costs to allow increased project productivity.
