TechCement™, a family of novel geopolymer cements, can be used in a variety of concrete, precast, and masonry construction projects as a superior alternative to Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and High-Performance Concrete (HPC) due to its unique properties.
TechCement™ is highly versatile and can be used in a wide range of construction projects, including landscape rock, pavers, high detail precast, high-definition casing, and high-definition/architectural structures.
TechCement™ develops higher strength at early ages compared to traditional Portland cement, which makes it an excellent choice for use in precast or prestressed concrete, where early strength gain and quick form turnaround are desired.
Another key benefit of TechCement™ is that it is not susceptible to typical freeze/thaw degradation, as it is a very low permeability material. This makes it an ideal choice for use in environments with extreme weather conditions compounded by the use of chemical deicers
Overall, TechCement™ is an innovative product that is changing the way the construction industry approaches cement and concrete production. With its superior strength, durability, and versatility, TechCement™ is an excellent choice for anyone looking to build high-quality, long-lasting structures.
High Early Strength
Reaches 2000 psi twice as fast as portland cement
High early strength enables faster turn times on precast molds
On par with Precast Designs using portland cement concrete
Decreased CO₂ Emissions & Water Usage
Eliminates over 65% of traditional concrete greenhouse gas pollution and cuts water demand by 50%-55%
Higher Heat Resistance
Thermal stability and resistant to high temperatures, preventing degradation or structural damage
Bonds to Existing Concrete & Asphalt
Can be used to increase reflectivity & cover asphalt highways as well as repair/overlay existing concrete
Recycled & Recyclable
Utilizes waste concrete as an aggregate and can be recycled and used as an aggregate itself
Increased Acid Resistance
Inorganic polymerization creates a higher resistance than acid attack in calcium-based reactions of traditional concrete
Superior protection against moisture, reducing the risk of structural damage while increasing longevity
1 / Precast Concrete Production/tilt wall
TechCement™ can be used as a full or partial replacement for Portland cement in the production of precast concrete products, such as walls, beams, and columns. Its high-early strength and quick form turnaround make it an ideal material for use in precast concrete.
2 / Roadway Bridges and Pavements
TechCement™ can be used in the construction of roadway bridges and pavements due to its high strength, low permeability, and increased acid and salt resistance. Its use in these applications can help reduce maintenance costs and increase the lifespan of the structures.
3 / Water Collection and Treatment Facilities
TechCement™ is an ideal material for the construction of water collection and treatment facilities due to its low permeability, which greatly reduces the risk of water leakage and contamination.
4 / Marine Applications
TechCement™ can be used in marine applications such as seawalls, docks, and wave abatement due to its high strength and low permeability. Its use in these applications can help protect against erosion and other forms of damage caused by water.
5 / Residential Foundations and Driveways
TechCement™ can be used in the construction of residential foundations and driveways due to its high strength, low permeability, and increased acid resistance. Its use in these applications can help increase the lifespan of the structures and reduce maintenance costs.
6 / Ornamental Precast Stone & Pavers
TechCement™ is ideal for ornamentals due to high durability and ability to maintain pigmented colors.
7 / Barrier
TechCement™ can be utilized as a barrier against bullet, fragment and blast overpressure events.
8 / 3-D Printing
The adjustable fluidity and rapid set times of TechCement™ make it ideal for 3-D printing.
