The history about Hi-Con starts at Aalborg Portland. Back in 1986, the engineers at Aalborg Portland developed a new type of concrete. The concrete consisted of a new and complex mix of binders and steelfibres. They named the new concrete CRC (Compact Reinfored Composite).
CRC has an extreme strength and durabily while still being only slightly porous. Thereby, the concrete has a very high density, which is why we are able to use only a small cover layer and thereby less amount of material compared to conventional concrete.
Since 2001, Hi-Con has developed, tested and documented this type of UHPC and created an even stronger and improved version. We call our generation of the material CRC i2® and CRC i3® - the second and third generation of our innovative UHPC with the same high material safety and properties as the original CRC.
