Product description
This ultra high performance concrete uses the highest quality white cement giving a pristine uniform white appearance, excellent surface definition and fantastic performance. Though associated costs are increased.
The increased strength of the product allows thinner and more lightweight precast elements to be produced.
It has high compression strength, durability, abrasion and chemical resistance and also provides good blast protection in security applications.
