Design of ultra-light UHPC panels for precast housing


The sector of precast buildings has developed dramatically in the last years, existing a wide variety of precasting systems available in the market. For some of them, RDC has designed ultra-light UHPC panels. Many of these components are currently produced in PREFFOR for companies from the sector of industrialized housing.

Why to use UHPC?

The purpose of using the UHPC panels is to increase the stiffness of the precast modules and to improve their thermal and acoustic properties adding only a minimum weight and with competitive costs. With simple connection systems and avoiding the use of steel rebars, these panels can be easily incorporated in the industrial production process of the client.


  • High efficiency with minimum weight
  • Fast, safe and simple connection to the precast modules


  • More than 100 precast houses installed in Spain in the last decade have Formex® panels

More Projects with UHPC


RDC works closely with the client to evaluate the technical, economical and environmental viability of replacing its current solution by UHPC. A tailored premix of Formex® is proposed to maximize the competitiveness of the new element.



UHPC Applications


RDC helps the client to make real the use of UHPC in the daily industrial production. The team supports in stages as the scale-up of the production, the resolution of bottlenecks and the implementation of the quality control plan.





UHPC (Ultra-High Performance Concrete) is an extremely compact and ductile cementitious composite. Its properties make it perfect for applications where durability or maintenance play a significant role, where a lightweight structure is particularly relevant, or where the slenderness or thickness of piece is is important.
