Cor-Tuf UHPC Goes Mainstream with a First-Ever UHPC Mobile Batch Plant

MANASSAS, Va., March 25, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cor-Tuf®️ UHPC, the exclusive licensed producer of Cor-Tuf Ultra High Performance Concrete (UHPC) in the United States and the world is bringing Cor-Tuf UHPC into mainstream production with its groundbreaking mobile batch plant. Now Cor-Tuf UHPC can be used by contractors anywhere and everywhere, under any conditions. No special considerations or accommodations required. Cor-Tuf Founder and Chairman Douglas Darling expressed his excitement over the innovative piece of equipment, stating, "Our one-of-a-kind UHPC mobile batch plant brings us into mainstream concrete society. We are now ready to play with 'big boy' concrete. And we can't wait to get started."

Cor-Tuf UHPC is a revolutionary form of concrete that is extremely strong and durable, delivering up to ten times the compressive strength of traditional concrete. Historically UHPC mixes have not been easy to work with. Cor-Tuf has already changed the game in this regard.

The Cor-Tuf proprietary UHPC mix is pourable, pumpable, and sprayable, and it can be mixed and transported with any kind of conventional concrete machinery. Cor-Tuf is stepping up their game even further with the introduction of the mobile batch plant. Now, contractors and construction workers will be able to mix load after load of Cor-Tuf UHPC right on the job site, working it into the regular rhythm of any contracting situation. The mobile batch plant equipment also makes it possible to produce batch tickets for Cor-Tuf UHPC, conforming with standardized and industry-accepted delivery methodologies.

Cor-Tuf worked very closely with Mixer Systems on the Cor-Tuf UHPC mobile batch plant project. Mixer Systems is a US-based company that oversaw the design and production of the equipment. Darling commented, "We are proud to say that our Cor-Tuf UHPC mobile batch plant is 100% American-made. It was also constructed from readily available, off-the-shelf parts and required zero custom fabrication. You can take anyone who has worked in a batch plant facility and put them to work—today—with the Cor-Tuf UHPC mobile batch plant. There's no learning curve, but the end product is far superior."

Cor-Tuf just completed the initial round of testing on the mobile batch plant in conjunction with their partner Dura-Stress Inc. in Florida. The response has been overwhelmingly positive, impressing those who have had the opportunity to see it in person. The team is in the process of wrapping up the final touches, but this is just the first of many mobile batch plants to come.

Be on the lookout for future updates as the Cor-Tuf UHPC mobile batch plant rollout continues. Cor-Tuf is committed to bringing innovation to the concrete and construction industries with its revolutionary Cor-Tuf UHPC mix and now with a one-of-a-kind mobile batch plant that renders traditional concrete obsolete.
