DUCTILCRETE® HB100 System

System Description

DUCTILCRETE® HB100 is a patented dual-layer engineered system for concrete slabs based on the Heidebed® technology and method. It is specifically designed for tilt-up construction where the two layers are placed in separate pours. The entire bottom part of the slab can be installed quickly providing a surface for ongoing construction. The top layer is typically placed after the walls and roof have been installed, which allows for a superior slab finish, eliminating the need for repairs of the bottom course. The DUCTILCRETE® HB100 system results in high performance, flat concrete slabs with column line joint spacing, superior finish without the residual effects of tilt-up construction, increased load carrying capacity, and reduced maintenance while improving construction schedules when compared to traditional slab construction systems.
