PDS for the Original Steelike UHPC Mix Design.   MIXING Steelike® UHPC is typically mixed on-site in accordance with directions provided by Steelike®. We also have successfully mixed off-site and then delivered to the project eliminating the spaced required and this kept the mess off the bridge.  A Steelike® representative must be present during all Steelike UHPC mixing and placing operations. The dry mix, water, ice, and fibers shall be proportioned and mixed in accordance with the Steelike® representative’s direction based on field conditions. There are multiple options available for mixing equipment, including ready-mix trucks. Steelike® will work with you to recommend the mixing equipment best suited for your needs. PLACING Steelike® can be placed using buckets, wheelbarrows, buggies, or pumps (consult with a Steelike® representative about appropriate pump types).   We recently perfected the direct to deck from a Ready-mix truck uhpc overlay placement.  Ask us about this. The self-consolidating version should not be vibrated, as this could cause the fibers to segregate. CURING The only steps required to properly cure Steelike® UHPC are to prevent moisture loss and to maintain a minimum curing temperature of 50°F (18°C). Exposed surfaces should be covered with plastic sheeting as soon as possible to prevent moisture loss. If placing Steelike® when ambient temperatures could drop below 50°F (18°C) within 72 hours after placing, cold weather placement procedures will be required to maintain the temperature of Steelike® UHPC and the surrounding structure above 50°F (18°C) until it has reached a compressive strength of 14 ksi (98 MPa). FINISHING Certain applications of Steelike® UHPC, such as precast deck connections, may require top forms. In this case, the top surface will typically need to be poured 3/8 inch (10 mm) high and then ground flush to remove air bubbles trapped by the top form. Applications such as bridge deck overlays do not require top forms. However, to achieve a desirable surface profile and adequate friction, the top of an overlay is typically grinded and/or grooved. Formed surfaces will replicate the texture of the form to a high level of detail. Contact us to learn how Steelike® UHPC
