AALBORG EXCEL®, the 2nd UHPC premixed product, developed under the AALBORG INWHITE SOLUTION®, is said to be a self-levelling and fast flowing product, allowing combinations with pigments and fibres, achieving smooth surface finishes.
Based on Cementir’s newest binder patent technology, FUTURECEM™, Cementir's two UHPC premix products, AALBORG EXTREME®, (The first UHPC product in the INWHITE Family) and AALBORG EXCEL, have unique properties and characteristics with a similar high compressive strength, and good properties in terms of tensile strength, shrinkage and durability.
The technology behind the EXTREME and EXCEL binders does not include silica fume, quartz flour, slag, or fly ash in the formulation. It is still said to still offer, however, advantageous pozzolanic components from a sustainable source. Self-levelling properties, long open time, high durability and high compressive strength, in the range of 140 MPa, makes EXCEL a good fit for architectural applications with thin and complex geometries.
By adding different types of fibres and pigments, both UHPC products could be set to help architects achieve the integration of structure, function and aesthetics. They are suitable for the manufacturing of thin/slim concrete products with high aesthetic, mechanical and durability performance.
