Public art needs to be safe, engineered to accommodate people’s innate need to physically experience the structure.
Ductal® UHPC concrete is the perfect medium for public art. Although it is the strongest concrete in the world, it can replicate the finest details in texture, shape and form.
Ductal is produced as either a white or gray powder and can be integrally colored in a wide range of shades. Castings are striking in the visual uniformity of their coloration.
UHPC (ultra high performance concrete) is creating new thresholds for performance and possibilities within the precast industry. Ductal does not need passive reinforcement, it uses integral organic fiber to create massive flexural strength. This removes previous structural constraints, resulting in thiner profiles, and designs of extraordinary purity. Gone are the limitations of traditional precast techniques and the lacklustre finishes they produce. Bulky, dated surfaces are replaced with mixed materials, embedded fasteners, and bend ply aesthetics. The material is only limited by your imagination.
