What is ceramic cement?
Multiple architectural studies have determined that the use of 'cold-fired' ceramic cement binders date back to structures such as the Egyptian Pyramids, the Great Wall of China, the Roman Pantheon and aqueducts, the Greek Parthenon, the Iron Pillar of Delhi and the Angkor Wat temple in Cambodia.
These ancient cement chemistries, more recently referred to as geopolymers and geoceramics, fall into two categories; the alkali pozzolan versions are based primarily on reactive lime and volcanic ash (nowadays predominantly fly ash) while the acidic versions are based on reactive oxides & phosphates.
Why Ceramic Cement is Portland concretes best new friend?
Throughout recorded history there have been many forms of concrete. The common perception is that all concrete products are roughly the same. Nothing could be further from the truth. In this context cement is traditionally defined as a binder or bonding system (glue if you will). When aggregates like gravel and sand are added to a bonding system of choice the final material is referred to as concrete.
Extensive scientific examination and field use over the past 20-years has verified that chemically-bonded ceramic concrete (also known as geopolymer) is not susceptible to the weathering, erosion, cracking, corrosion problems inherent in limestone-bonded Portland cement.
Our C3Ceramic products; (a) are water-activated, (b) contain no toxic ingredients (including fly ash & ammonia), (c) produced in traditional Portland concrete blending facilities and applied using conventional concrete application technologies in cold, hot, humid and wet conditions, (e) withstand temperatures up to 2300 F, (f) achieve 6000 psi in 3-hrs., 7500 psi in 24-hrs., 11-13,000 psi in 28-days, (g) adjustable working times from a few minutes to 1-hr., (h) impervious to rebar corrosion, salt water erosion, mold, moss and acid rain.
This industry standard ease of use combined with the decidedly superior concrete repair solutions our C3Ceramic products provide has been a huge factor in gaining the interest and respect of the concrete industry. Thus Portland concrete's best new friend.....
Why is Ceramic Cement important to the near and long term future?
Our C3Ceramic products offer well proven solutions that uniquely address the increasing demand for 'green' products, durable infrastructure repair, superior building construction methods, non-toxic decorative blends, lead free X-ray/MRI examination, the repair of damaged nuclear facilities, the durable containment of radiated waste, the repair and quick return to service of bridges, roadways, tunnels, runways, parking lots, and heavy equipment storage yards. A growing list of ceramic cement end-users include the U.S. Military and numerous Municipal, County and State DOT repair crews.
It's also important to note that all forms of ceramic cement / concrete are not created equal. When strict standards of raw material choice, formula ratios, particle sizing and state-of-the-art blending practices are compromised, it doesn't matter whether it's ceramic, portland, fly ash based pozzolan, or any other form of cement chemistry, the end result can literally be disastrous.
Selecting the best quality materials, monitoring every batch, and strictly adhering to the highest quality controlled production standards is and always will be C3's No. 1 priority. Based on the water-activated ease of use and compatibility with Portland concrete blending facilities and application technologies our C3Ceramic blends are in fact an evolved version of Portland concrete and one day sooner than later will be recognized as Portland Ceramic concrete. And when it comes to improving the concrete foundations and eco-sustainable environment of our children and grandchildren's world that's a good thing!
