MATERIALS AND FINISHES
we use both traditional and innovative materials to carry out unique projects
UHPC (Ultra-High Performance fiber reinforced Concrete) is a mortar with very high mechanical performance and aesthetic, developed for the manufacturing of non-structural concrete elements, of high architectural content indoor and outdoor furniture, street furniture, lamps and lighting, artistic works, etc.). It contains cement premixed with sand, fibers and special additives for its packaging. The fibers used are glass fibers resistant to alkali.
He high surface yield of the pieces, achievable also with glossy effect, makes it ideal for use in high-end design. Its fibrous texture, together with an excellent durability, ensures a good resistance to cracking and makes it suitable to the realizations in the exterior. The agglomerating agent was developed according to the technology of high-performance concretes and is equipped with mechanical properties that are stronger than traditional UHPC. The mortar, characterized by great workability, flexibility is suitable to the reproduction of the most minute details.
Being adaptable to molds and formwork also very complex, it is particularly suitable for the realization of small, thin, smooth architectural elements or characterized by different surface finishes. Pigmentation may be incorporated in the composition of the material, allowing a wide variety of colors and multiple aesthetic effects. By adjusting saturation, any requirement of color can be satisfied.
The very fine grain of the treated surface allows light effects that enhance the mineral content and hence the appearance of natural materials. The precision of the finish goes along with excellent durability and preservation of the material. The mortar is shock resistant thanks to the addition of fiber in its formulation and it is stain resistant, thanks to its low porosity.
