High Strength, Green Concrete for Engineers
By design, lower cost, stronger, faster, and substantially more durable than standard concrete.
Often times, a product's performance (durability, strength, workability) is sacrificed for the sake of environmental concerns. CeraTech's cement technology reverses this trend by producing an extremely durable, exceedingly green concrete with exceptional performance and enhanced design flexibility.
CeraTech™ Green Cement concrete has been rigorously tested and validated by the nation's premier testing laboratories and agencies. Successfully validated in demanding environments, CeraTech's cements are now available for your project.
Engineers appreciate the design possibilities of a concrete that provides lower heat of hydration, faster strength gains, improved durability in a wide variety of conditions-all while allowing for reduced beam and column cross sectional areas with greater flexural and splitting tensile strengths. Exceptional volume stability, a very low water demand (0.18 - 0.23 W/C), reduced cracking and crazing, and very low chloride permeability encapsulate the steel and validate what engineers and scientists have known for years; a dense calcium aluminum silicate hydrate (CASH) concrete structure provides a superior concrete.
The following table represents typical concrete performance and design possibilities.

OPCC Mix Design:
752 lbs. cement, 0.45 w/c, 5" slump (6,000 psi)
ekkomaxx™ Mix Design:
750 lbs. cement, 0.22 w/c, 5" slump (8,000 psi)
Similar to traditional concretes, strengths, slump, working and set times can be manipulated by adjusting the ratio of CeraTech's liquid additives, cement powder loading and overall mix design.
