UHPFRC elements that are reinforced with stainless steel fibres can, after several years, suffer from unattractive, rusty surface points – although tests and publications have validated the material’s mechanical integrity under aggressive conditions. For some architectural applications (especially those in white), it was necessary to develop specific solutions in order to cope with this aesthetic issue respecting AFGC/SETRA recommendations. Consequently, a test program of UHPFRC reinforced with stainless steel fibres has been performed at the material level (mechanical characteristics, aesthetical and durability) to verify the structural response was verified on concrete element level and at the project level the applicability of this solution was demonstrated.
