TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC)

UHPC is a type of concrete with exceptional mechanical properties, high durability, and resistance to wear and tear. Its compressive strength is up to 200 MPa, tensile strength up to 10-20 MPa, and density is 2.3-2.5 g/cm3. It has a low water-cement ratio of less than 0.20 and a high volume of fibers made of steel or synthetic materials.
UHPC requires specialized equipment and expertise to produce, typically using a high-energy mixing process.

Lightweight concrete

Our concrete is created using an innovative and intelligent material composition, resulting in a product that weighs approximately half as much as conventional concrete. Unlike some ultra-lightweight options, we prioritize durability and authenticity and achieve this by not using any steel or large aggregates in our product.

Finishing

Polished and natural Ultra High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPC) are two different finishes that can be achieved with UHPC furniture.

Polished UHPC has a glossy, smooth surface achieved through a multi-step polishing process. The polished finish enhances the natural color of the concrete and creates a reflective surface that can add a modern, sleek look to the furniture.

On the other hand, natural UHPC has a more raw and matte finish that highlights the texture and natural imperfections of the concrete. This finish can add a more organic and rustic feel to the furniture.
Both finishes have their unique aesthetic appeal and can be selected based on personal preference and the overall design of the space.

Cleaning and General Protection

To keep your Ultra High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPC) product in good condition, it’s important to follow proper cleaning and maintenance procedures. Here are some tips:

Cleaning: Use a mild detergent mixed with warm water and a microfiber cloth to clean it. Avoid using harsh chemicals or abrasive cleaners, as these can damage the surface. After cleaning, rinse the surface with water to remove any chemical residue before use.

Protection: To protect the surface from heat and water damage, avoid placing hot objects directly on the surface. This can cause cracking or discoloration. It’s also a good idea to wipe up spills immediately to prevent staining or etching.

Sealing: Depending on the specific UHPC product, it may come pre-sealed or require periodic sealing. Sealing helps to protect the surface from staining and discoloration. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for sealing or re-sealing your product (example: Tables).

Regular Maintenance: UHPC tables are generally low maintenance, but it’s still important to periodically inspect and clean the surface to ensure its longevity. Check for any cracks, chips, or other damage, and address any issues promptly to prevent further damage. By following these simple tips, you can keep your UHPC table looking beautiful and in great condition for years to come.
