Why C3Ceramic Products Are Portland Concrete's Best New Friend
For the purpose of clarification: Cement is herein defined as a basic binder (i.e. mineral based glue) while the final material produced, when aggregates such as gravel and sand are added to a cement binder of choice, is referred to as concrete. The prevalent global concrete is based on the Portland concrete formula invented in 1824 in Leeds, England by Joseph Aspdin using limestone obtained from the nearby Isle of Portland.
As the world’s infrastructure began to be constructed with limestone-bonded Portland concrete throughout the remaining 19th Century, in the early 20th Century microscopic inspection confirmed that within decades, sometimes years and even months Aspdin’s limestone-bonded Portland concrete was degraded by water/acid (salt) erosion, metal rebar corrosion, cracking, crumbling problems. While the world concrete industries have invested billions of dollars to improve limestone-bonded Portland concrete, the crumbling, cracking problems remain a serious problem.
Over the past 20-years numerous U.S. Government research programs, academic studies, inclusive of our EcoC3 research efforts, have scientifically confirmed the superior quality of chemically-bonded phosphate ceramic cement when compared to limestone-bonded concrete and all other cementitious bonding systems. With this relatively unrecognized evidence of superior ceramic concrete quality underpinning our ceramic cement products, our water-activated, user-friendly C3 blends are to the best of our knowledge the only eco-friendly, carbon credit worthy concrete/coating materials!
We do not use the toxic fly ash included in traditional Portland concrete or any harmful toxic laden ingredients. Providing superior quality, strength and durability while eliminating the toxic runoff / clean up issues and related environment/health issues associated with Portland concrete. With the added advantage that our water-activated ceramic cement formulas bond to mineral, metal, cellulose, can be poured, troweled and sprayed-on with no off gassing or toxic clean up problems.
It's also important to note that our C3Ceramic products are not in competition with Portland concrete and instead are produced and applied using conventional Portland concrete technologies. Providing durable, quick return to service repair, replacement solutions for damaged Portland concrete structures.
Beneficially evolving the use of Portland concrete to include phosphate-bonded PortlandCeramic formulas that eliminate the cracking, corrosive, toxic laden problems inherent in limestone-bonded versions.
Additional benefits include the creation of eco-safe homes, building products, counter tops, sinks, swimming pools, and the list goes on. Formulated with natural and recycled raw material sources that provide significantly better performance in strength, surface abrasion, durability, impermeability, resistance to chemical attack, extreme cold and heat, mold, moss and bacteria. Thus, why we sometimes refer to our ceramic cement blends as “Portland concrete's best new friend”.
Inclusive of our globally patented, U.S. government tested X-Rok formulas providing never-before-possible radiation protection from numerous health threatening sources. Including leaking radiated waste sites, nuclear reactor disasters, and the electronic device dependent wi-fi / 5G emissions that are increasingly infiltrating our homes, schools, communities and working spaces.
Bottom-line: If we want our children and grandchildren’s world to have half a chance of overcoming the manmade dangers our over-polluted, over-radiated world inherited from the 20th Century we have to resolve and remove these health threatening problems. And now we can! The C3Ceramic products listed in this section factually illustrate why superior quality, eco-safe, user-friendly, industry proven concrete / coating repair & replacement answers have 'finally' arrived!
