LafargeHolcim and Freyssinet present Ductal Inside, the innovative and cost-effective UHPC shotcrete solution. The first applications relate to reinforcement of under roads and motorways. This solution does not reduce the gauge of the structure, increases strength and durability, and preserves hydraulic and ecological connectivity. The application of Ductal Inside is 3 times faster compared to dry shotcrete.
We hosted on November 20 in Brussels the working group: "Decarbonizing the built environment". After the session, Marce Cobuz, Region Head Europe, gave details of our contribution to low-carbon construction. He highlighted that we are on a mission to decarbonize construction and we believe that it can be accelerated!
Thermaflow is our range of low thermal resistivity concretes for use in high-demand electrical facilities such as data centers. Thermaflow is a range of thermally conductive concrete mixes that both conduct and transfer the considerable heat generated by buried electric cables. Our Thermaflow’s performance is pre-tested and third party verified for optimized data center duct bank design.
