Aalborg Excel is the 2nd UHPC premixed product developed under the Aalborg Inwhite Solution. It can satisfy manufacturers who seek the ultimate surface detailing and aesthetical expression, within aesthetic and architectural applications. Aalborg Excel is self-levelling and fast flowing. This allows combinations with pigments and fibers, achieving very smooth surface finishes. It even excels with the most challenging shapes.
Based on the Cementir’s newest binder patent technology Futurecem, Cementirs two UHPC premix products Aalborg Extreme (The 1 st UHPC product in the Inwhite Family) and Aalborg Excel have unique properties and characteristics with a similar high compressive strength, and excellent properties in terms of tensile strength, shrinkage and durability.
The technology behind the Extreme and Excel binders does not include silica fume. It also does not include quartz flour, slag or fly ash in the formulation. This results in a unique offer among the UHPC spectrum of products. It still offers, however, highly advantageous pozzolanic components from a sustainable source. Self-levelling properties, long open time, high durability and also high compressive strength, in the range of 140 MPa, makes Excel the perfect fit for architectural applications with thin and complex geometries.
By adding different types of fibers and pigments, both UHPC products can help architects achieve the integration of structure, function and aesthetics. They are perfectly suitable for the manufacturing of thin/slim concrete products with high aesthetic, mechanical and durability performance.
