Ductal / UHPC
Ductal® is a family of ultra-high performance concretes that provide a unique combination of superior properties including strength, ductility, durability and aesthetics. By utilizing its unique combination of properties, designers can create thinner sections and longer spans that are lighter, more graceful and innovative in geometry and form, while providing improved durability and impermeability against corrosion, abrasion and impact.
- Ductal® combines an ultra-high performance mineral matrix with metal or organic reinforcing fibers.
- The Ductal® family of ultra-high performance concretes are specifically designed and developed for structural or architectural applications.
- Ductal® provides architects and designers with the freedom to create complex textures, surfaces and shapes for a wide range of applications; it offers exceptional strength, ductility and durability while reducing the "Form Factor". Many pieces are significantly thinner and require little or no reinforcement.
DEX Industries is a Licensee of Ductal®. DEX has several Ductal facades in production from the Miami design district to New York. Below are images from a completed façade for a retail façade in Aventura Miami. As these projects are proprietary until complete for public viewing, other images will be shown as projects are complete.
