CERATECH Inc's 'Green,' High-Performance Cement Provides Superior Durability in Today's Industrial EnvironmentsResearched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas)--CERATECH Inc. (Alexandria, VA) is a unique company with a unique product. Incorporated in 2002, CERATECH developed and commercialized the world's first carbon-neutral alternative cement for concrete. Besides being a "green" alternative to traditional portland cement, CERATECH's products also provide superior resistance to the corrosive and high-temperature elements in today's harsh industrial environments.
One of the key constituents of CERATECH's cement is fly ash, most of which is generated from coal-fired power plants and requires large amounts of landfill space when disposed. In addition to preventing significant amounts of fly ash from reaching the landfill, CERATECH's manufacturing process requires significantly less energy and produces virtually no carbon dioxide. This results in a material that essentially has a zero carbon footprint, a crucial environmental consideration and advantage for companies and projects committed to green building practices.
The real benefit comes in the cement's outstanding performance in the industrial environment. Compared with traditional portland cement, CERATECH's cement provides significantly increased resistance to caustics, acids and high temperatures. These strong resistance qualities can reduce and even eliminate the use of the epoxy coatings necessary for cement in many industrial applications. When coatings are required, the curing time to allow the concrete to dry is significantly reduced, resulting in a much shorter turnaround time.
CERATECH's products have been used in countries around the world in a wide variety of industries, including petrochemical, refining, metals and minerals, food and beverage, and more. Because it is carbon-neutral and made from pre-consumer waste, CERATECH's cement can also contribute to a building's LEED certification points.
