Cor-Tuf® UHPC Remains Perfectly Intact In Controlled Drop Testing
Check out the strength of Cor-Tuf® UHPC in our most recent drop test. In this test, a 4-inch slab of Cor-Tuf® UHPC (cured for 30 days) is set on two iron beams to test the true strength of the material. In the first test, a bowling ball is dropped from a height of 22.5 feet. In the second test, a 67.5 pound block is dropped from the same 22.5 foot height onto the same Cor-Tuf® UHPC slab.
