DUCTILCRETE® engineered solutions are differentiated slab and paving systems designed to drastically reduce contraction joints and curling while delivering long-term performance.
DUCTILCRETE® Engineered Systems
Floors that are flat, have reduced saw cut joints and require minimal long-term maintenance – that is what owners, investors and tenants want.
DUCTILCRETE® engineered systems help you achieve these objectives by extending joint spacing, reducing curling and the associated maintenance and cost of your floor.
DUCTILCRETE® installations provide the following benefits:
- increased load-bearing capacity
- more flexibility in facility usage and layout
- signifficantly fewer joints
- reduced fatigue from load
- reduced curling
- reduced profile
- significantly less differential shrinkage
- unrestricted placement size
All of which positively influence the construction schedule and long-term cost of maintaining a high performance floor.
The design stage is just as important as the construction phase. With more than 80 years of experience in the concrete business, we understand that proper slab on grade designs, optimized mix designs, as well as concrete placement are essential to a quality concrete slab. That is why we provide third-party validated designs and specifications, including all details (inclusive of load capacity charts). We also review mix designs based on local materials and conditions.
DUCTILCRETE® slabs dramatically increase joint spacing on a project. Whether extended to column line spacing or beyond, reduced joints means:
- reduced joint filling
- reduced curling
- reduced rocking
- reduced spalling
- reduced long-term maintenance cost
Concrete paving can have many of the same challenges as floor slabs. Cracking, curling and pavement joints can be major issues. The DUCTILCRETE® engineered system for paving can offer low life cycle, sustainable, durable pavement solutions with resistance to salts and de-icers.
