Steel-Like Flexible Concrete from LaFarge

Imagine a building material that has the strength of steel, with the versatility of concrete, the flexibility of plastic or wood, the durability of stone and the aesthetic richness of ceramics. This is the promise of Ductal - a new ultra-high performance material from LaFarge.

Ductal is produced using materials commonly found in concrete: cement, silica fume, sand, superplasticisers and water, as well as some materials unique to Ductal: ground quartz, wollastonite and fibres.

The combination of strength, durability, aesthetics and ductility gives it superior properties that provides engineers, architects, artists and users with new freedom to design innovative building solutions.
