DURA Concrete Canada Incorporated is a Full Service Provider of Specialty Ultra High Performance Concrete Products
DURA® was founded in 2016 and is based in Lakeshore, Ontario. DURA® designs and produces customized and standardized Ultra-High-Performance Concrete (UHPC) components for specific infrastructures and architectural markets. DURA® aims to reduce our carbon footprint by using sustainable materials. By producing and offering innovative, and reliable materials as well as the services of the highest quality, we are looking to establish a new paradigm for sustainable and stable structures across North America. DURA® Ultra-High-Performance Concrete provides excellent mechanical and durability performance. DURA® is fully committed to a sustainable future by protecting the environment.
Ultra high-performance concrete (UHPC) is a promising new class of fiber-reinforced cementitious composite materials that are significantly addressing the challenges related to the durability, load capacity, economy, sustainability, and environmental impact of concrete infrastructures.
DURA® UHPC has a minimum specified compressive strength of 120 MPa. The exceptional properties of UHPC give engineers the freedom to reduce overall weight and section sizes while maintaining mechanical performance.
DURA® materials have been successfully used in different projects such as joint fill connection materials for bridge constructions, and other engineering applications that require superior mechanical and durability characteristics.
DURA® UHPC is an innovative and market-changing material with many beneficial architectural applications. With the importance of developing sustainable structures that will last for many generations, DURA® architectural elements provide a diverse selection of sustainable materials. We offer custom made shapes, colors, and textures for facades, tiles, roofs, sun shading, and cladding. Using UHPC for architectural elements allows for thinner members resulting in decreased weight and thickness.
DURA® opens entirely new possibilities to increase value engineering and design flexibility. It is our goal to bring architects blueprints into reality.
Repair and Rehabilitation
DURA® provides a wide range of repair and rehabilitation solutions for different industries. DURA® UHPC materials can be engineered and tailored to make it compatible with the existing deteriorated concrete infrastructure elements. Our new technology and highly trained crews can restore and reinforce all structural members by using special and engineered concrete.
Structural members can be reinforced and jacketed with DURA® UHPC by using fewer materials and thinner sections as compared to traditional concrete.
DURA® UHPC has a low maintenance cost, superior durability, crack-resistant, self-healing ability over time.
DURA® PREMIX UHPC
DURA® PREMIX UHPC is a pre-blended powder that is designed to give superior characteristics and performance. The material is available in two different weights, 50 lbs (10.5 litres) bags and 2000 lbs (400 litres) super sacks. The premixed materials are sold with fibres and chemical admixtures.
