EdenCrete® Additive Comparison Matrix
EdenCrete® does the job of several different types of admixtures you may already use. Typically, the addition of EdenCrete® improves the efficiency of other admixtures already in the concrete mix. Whether your goal is to reduce permeability, improve flexural, tensile and/or compressive strength, or improve resistance to surface abrasion and shrinkage, EdenCrete® gives you the option to replace or reduce the amount of other admixtures normally required to achieve the desired results; saving you money.
Technical Data Sheet
All EdenCrete® products can be used in a dry-batch or central plant mixing process and are dispensed into the truck simultaneously with other admixtures.
EdenCrete® Overview Brochure
Developed by Eden Innovations, EdenCrete® is a carbon nanotube-enriched liquid additive that elevates concrete structures to new levels of strength and toughness. When added to concrete mixtures, it performs like multiple additives rolled into one: It boosts surface abrasion resistance and produces extremely low permeability while improving tensile-strength like no other product on the market today.
Denver Tray Case Study
Because of the heavy runoff and seasonal flooding Denver is famous for, spillways carry a lot more than water. They also ferry rocks, pebbles and other abrasive materials that slowly scrub away the smooth surface of concrete channels. These small impact craters become cracks and holes, allowing water to seep into the structure. The trick to making spillways and drainage systems more robust is to simply improve the abrasion resistance and permeability of the concrete surface.
Railcar Facility Case Study
In Augusta, Georgia, thousands of tons of railroad cars and steel components are shipped to and from a major rail maintenance facility every week, wreaking havoc on the hardstand concrete slabs that cover the yard. The punishment from rolling loads, impact loads and abrasive wear is so extreme that the facility has maintained a quarterly rip-and-replace program to deal with the persistent failure of their slabs for more than 20 years.
GDOT Case Study
After reading a news story about the crumbling highway system in Georgia, EdenCrete approached the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) with an innovative proposal: Test our carbon concrete additive on a stretch of highway. We believe EdenCrete’s abrasive resistance properties, decreased permeability, and overall strength gains could potentially double the life expectancy of Georgia’s roadways.
If your goal is to produce high-quality concrete, we’d love to speak to you about how EdenCrete® can optimize your current arsenal of concrete mixes.
