Self-compacting special concretes

High-performance concretes for filigree façades and ­custom elements

The Drössler Ultralith and Drössler easyflow high-performance concrete (UHPC/HPC) ranges are known for their outstanding mechanical performance characteristics (i.e. high compressive and flexural strengths). These self-compacting high-performance concretes are extremely durable and have a very dense and strong surface, which is required to ensure effective load transfer via glued connections.

Drössler easyflow examples of use

The Drössler easyflow self-compacting, highly flowable concrete achieves strengths of up to C80/90 MPa. This material is predominantly used for complex geometries, as well...
