Advanced Cement Technologies
Since 1995, Advanced Cement Technologies, LLC (ACT), an industrial minerals supply company, has specialized in the concrete and cement based product markets, with their High Reactivity Pozzolanic admixtures for High Strength and High Performance applications.
ACT markets metakaolin and silica fume both domestically and internationally through its sales and technical support service located in Blaine, Washington USA,. Both Metakaolin and Silica Fume originate from the Eastern US and a West Coast inventory is available out of its warehouse in California. No matter where you are located in the world, ACT has a reliable transportation network to meet your delivery needs.
ACT is a supplier of Powerpozz™ Metakaolin, and both Densified and Undensified Silica Fume (Microsilica).
Both products are available in bags, super sacks, or bulk shipments.
A pozzolan is defined by ASTM C618 as a siliceous or siliceous and aluminous material which, in itself, possesses little or no cementitious value but which will, in finely divided form in the presence of moisture, react chemically with calcium hydroxide at ordinary temperature to form compounds possessing cementitious properties.
Powerpozz™ High Reactive Metakaolin is manufactured starting with specially selected high quality kaolin clay. It is then processed using a uniquely designed open hearth calcining furnace that assures consistent temperature control. This in turn, produces a white, highly pozzolanic or peak reactive quality.
Silica Fume is a high quality, refined by-product combining chemical and physical properties, that make it a highly reactive pozzolan in cement based applications. The very small particle size distribution provides a distinct advantage for a number of applications.
The above products meet or exceed ASTM and AASHTO standards. These products are approved for use in all USA state and federal department concrete projects and through associations such as the American Concrete Institute and Decorative Concrete Council.
