White Paper: How Pumice Pozzolans Super-Charge Concrete Performance

Share Article

A new white paper, written by Joseph Thomas of Hess Pumice, examines the poor performance and deterioration problems inherent in standard concrete and then details exactly how and why (backed by extensive research) a concrete mix design incorporating a natural pumice pozzolan significantly mitigates or eliminates those problems.

Today’s standard concretes simply aren’t as good as they could be.

Our modern civilization, for all its marvels, is largely built upon an infrastructure of short-lived, crumbling concrete.

PROBLEM: Today’s standard concretes simply aren’t as good as they could or should be: almost as soon as standard concrete is placed, the process of degradation begins—thermal cracking, porosity (from CH migration), sulfate attack, Alkali-Silica reaction—all of which severely shorten the usable life of the concrete structure.

SOLUTION: Adding a high-purity, carefully refined, natural pumice pozzolan to the concrete formulation mitigates or completely eliminates the problems inherent in standard concrete. The white paper, “How Pumice Pozzolans Super-Charge Concrete Performance,” clearly identifies the inherent problems in standard concrete mix designs and, using data from recent research, details how the pozzolanic reaction improves the concrete.

RESULT: Our failing roads, bridges, and structures can be replaced with a high-performance concrete that expert research has shown to provide significant performance enhancements in terms of appearance, impermeability, longevity, thermal cracking, resistivity to chemical attacks, and compressive strength. All possible using an abundant, safe, & natural pumice pozzolan...the same pozzolan used by Roman engineers.
