IPOH, 13 September 2023: A total of 35 guest from Unit Penyelarasan Pelaksaan Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Kedah (ICU JPM) organized a technical visit at Dura Technology factory in Chemor, Perak. Their team which was led by Puan Zaiton Bin Yahya. Was given a presentation by Head of Business Development about Ultra-High-Performance Fiber Reinforced Concrete (UHPFRC) to educate about UHFPRC and to create an understanding on its applications as to how it can be more sustainable compared to current technology and introduction of Dura company. The purpose of this visit was to provide a more in-depth knowledge in the science of concrete materials have led to the development of a new class of cementitious composites that called ultra-high-performance concrete (UHPC). UHPC is being considered for use in a wide variety of highway infrastructure applications. The high compressive and tensile strengths allow for the redesign and optimization of structural elements compare with the normal concrete.
After a brief presentation, the guests were taken to Wilson Hall to observe our UHPFRC products and learn about our manufacturing process. This hands-on experience can help guests gain a better understanding of the properties and strengths of our UHPFRC and its potential applications. By seeing the materials and manufacturing process firsthand, guests can better evaluate whether our UHPFRC is the right fit for their needs. The team were also shown a few tests (compression, flexural, chloride attack etc.) in our lab.
