The first hybrid UHPC seminar Netherlands – “The concrete of tomorrow”was hosted by Aalborg Portland Belgium in November. With more than 110 participants, physically presented in Gorinchem (NL) or joined the seminar by video, this event has been a big success and a booster for further promoting the promising technology behind Ultra High Performance Concrete. 

UHPC Seminar

In the seminar, eight high quality presentations have been addressed by manufactures and experts across the UHPC value chain in Benelux. Focusing on UHPC premixed material, Tom Ryckeboer introduced InWhite next generation UHPC performance and projects. This year, INBIND new binder product for high performance mortar and concrete applications has been launched in Europe. The flexible and reliable binder solution empowers the local precasters to produce a customized UHPC optimizing costs by using local available aggregates and additives.
