Structural Strengthening with DUCON®
DUCON® Micro Reinforced Concrete Systems are innovative, high-performance strengthening and force protection solutions designed for extreme load resistance and energy absorption. DUCON® combines an ultra high-strength, high-performance grout with densely layered MicroMat® steel reinforcement.
DUCON® systems are ideal for structures that require significant increase in load capacity, ballistic, or impact resistance. These systems can be custom designed to meet project- specific performance requirements.
- Ability to adjust the design and physical properties to meet
- High-performance versus thickness ratio (i.e. thin strengthening layer)
- Can be applied as thin as ½ inch
- Ease of constructability allows use in a wide variety of design requirements, geometries, and orientations
- Flexibility in application methods (both in-situ and precast)
- Extremely ductile
- Abrasion resistant
|DUCON® (Composite)*||Range (psi/ksi)||Range (MPa/GPa)|
|Compressive Strength (ASTM C39)||13,000 – 18,000 psi||89 – 124 MPa|
|Elastic Modulus (ASTM C469)||3,200 – 4,600 ksi||22.1 – 31.7 GPa|
|Tensile Strength (ASTM C496)||1,300 – 2,000 psi||8.9 – 13.8 MPa|
DUCON® and MicroMat® trade names and patents are owned by DUCON GmbH and are distributed by STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES for force protection and strengthening applications.
Placement characteristics similar to concrete, combined with the ductility and energy absorption properties of steel, give DUCON® “moldable, steel-like” characteristics.
With its ductility and energy dissipating qualities, the DUCON® system allows for the highest level of performance for the most challenging forces and load combinations.
In placement versatility, like concrete, DUCON® can be applied to new and existing structural members, or prefabricated off-site to create a wide range of precast shapes and sizes.
