VCAS™ Pozzolans are "green" construction materials made from industrial byproducts that help contribute to the sustainability of cement and concrete. VCAS™ Pozzolans use in concrete replaces an equal amount of cement resulting in energy conservation and CO 2 emission reductions from cement manufacturing. For every ton of cement manufactured, about million BTUs energy are consumed .
Manufacturer and distributor of pumice products used as additives for concrete and construction materials. Other applications include a mild abrasive of choice in exfoliating soaps and cleansers, tumbling media, erasers and dental polishing compounds.

Our deformationprocessing equipment is capable of smallscale extrusion and simulated extractions to gain insights on new manufacturing techniques, and our expertise in additive manufacturing can enhance the production of all materials systems, whether they incorporate lightweight metals, ceramics, polymers or .
Water reducers, retarders, and superplasticizers are admixtures for concrete, which are added in order to reduce the water content in a mixture or to slow the setting rate of the concrete while retaining the flowing properties of a concrete mixture. Admixtures are used to modify the properties of concrete or mortar to make them more suitable to work by hand or for other purposes such as saving mechanical .
QUIKRETE® Countertop Mix (No. 110680) is a specially formulated flowable highstrength concrete mix for precast and castinplace concrete countertop applications. Superplasticizer additive provides a flowable mix at low water/cement ratio.
Additive manufacturing (AM) now uses metals, ceramics, glass, composites, grapheneembedded plastics, paper, concrete, food, yarn and bioinks used to create artificial organs and soft tissues .
When it comes to performance, XG's concrete solution outperforms other additives to resist moisture absorption with greater surface area than other additives. Acid attacks can be concerning for infrastructure designers and project teams due to the degradation of the materials over time.
Raw Materials. Portland cement, the kind most often used in concrete, is made from a combination of a calcareous material (usually limestone) and of silica and alumina found as clay or shale. In lesser amounts, it can also contain iron oxide and magnesia. Aggregates, which comprise 75 percent of concrete by volume,...
Akona® Concrete Bonding Additive Akona ® Concrete Bonding Additive is an acrylic cement modifier that dramatically improves strength, adhesion, abrasion resistance and freezethaw resistance and is ideally suited for use with sand, mortar, cement mixes and selected Akona Repair Products.
Steel and aluminum alloys are the most used metallic materials in civil engineering structures due to their high strength and low density respectively. For elevatedtemperature, intermetallic compounds have been developed, however, they are brittle. Among cementitious structural materials, concrete is dominant.
In addition to the use of the normal concrete materials (cement, sand, gravel and water), other materials may be added into the mix to provide exposed finishes with unique looks. Examples are rose quartz, limestone, dark gray or black basalt, red or blue granite and even colored glass or seashells.
The trick to a longlasting concrete repair lies in bonding the new material to the old material. Many people think that the new patching material will magically stick to the old concrete. You need to understand the process of bonding.
Additive materials from waste affect concrete's mechanical properties and thus can contribute to useful waste disposal. Sorel cementbased materials with new additions have become the focus of research.
May 15, 2018· Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) brought the idea to use 3D printing for concrete tooling to the Precast/ Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI), the industry's technical institute and trade association, as the result of a collaborative research project. No printing was involved in that project, which focused on developing a lighter, thinner precast insulated panel.
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is an appropriate name to describe the technologies that build 3D objects by adding layeruponlayer of material, whether the material .
