Architectural studies report a form of 'cold-fired' ceramic cement was used in the 12th Century Angkor Wat Temple in Cambodia
Why Our C3 Ceramic Cement Products Are Portland Concrete's Best New Friend:
Multiple architectural studies have determined the use of 'cold-fired' ceramic cement binders date back to the Egyptian Pyramids, the Great Wall of China, the Roman Panthenon and aqueducts, Greek Parthenon, the Iron Pillar of Dehli, and the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia. With this historic background underpinning our C3 / EcoC3 research efforts, multiple science studies have confirmed that the superior quality of 'cold-fired' ceramic cement formulas has only recently been recognized i.e., rediscovered.
In this historic context, C3's globally patented, calcium-silicate ceramic cement products are leading the way in providing environmentally safe, carbon credit worthy, durable, user-friendly concrete repair materials. Maintaining the water-activated benefits of Portland concrete while eliminating the corrosion, cracking, toxic problems associated with limestone-bonded concrete. The high compression / bonding strength our chemically-bonded ceramic concrete products provide enables quick return to service repair of bridges, highways, tunnels, runways, parking lots, heavy equipment storage yards & the list of cost-saving benefits goes on.
Science, industry, and U.S. Government testing has verified that our C3Ceramic formulas provide superior eco-safe results to all other forms of concrete. Including magnesium oxychloride concrete and the magnesium phosphate concrete (MPC) being researched in numerous countries. Even thought China MPC studies unwisely use radiation infested fly ash (https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/coal-ash-is-more-radioactive-than-nuclear-waste/) they still demonstrate improved results when compared to Portland limestone concrete. China and other academic studies also confirm alternative versions of MPC are water permeable (hydrophilic). While Seattle Aquarium research, U.S. Navy testing, and multiple EcoC3 studies have verified our C3Ceramic cement formulas are 100% water impermeable (hydrophobic).
Another important market entry cost factor, when local / regional markets are established our C3Ceramic products can be licensed and self-blended using traditional ribbon blending systems and applied with Portland concrete application technologies. Eliminating the need for expensive production changes for experienced concrete producers and end-users.
And finally, everything this report shares is dependent on cost-effectively, securely, and consistently producing our own quality raw materials, including from recycled waste. A critically important market entry issue that our C3 alliance company EarthCycleTech, Inc. has researched for many years and successfully resolved. The versatility of our C3Ceramic concrete / coating formulas are described in the C3 Products drop down menu.
