New Concrete Construction Materials
Concrete is a major producer of CO2 on our planet. It isn’t even the best or most economical material we can use. In addition to rusting steel, it is diamagnetic which means it drains energy from those in contact with it. Geopolymers on the other hand, are paramagnetic and energize those in contact with it, and has many other benefits.
DragonsHeart scientists have geo-polymer chemistries for every manner of construction that are less expensive, stronger and more flexible than concrete. Geo-polymers are extremely flexible, with respect to applications in which they may be used and the cost is easily 1/3 that of concrete, without any of the environmental drawbacks. Unlike cement they do not require expensive kilns using CO2 producing heat.
In their most basic state, geo-polymers can withstand three times the compressive and twice the tensile strength of concrete, and can easily exceed 60,000 psi compressive strength and 22 Kilo Joules of tensile pressure, which is almost twenty times more than concrete. Some product test procedures and applicable standards were performed in Russia in the 90s. No break of samples occurred after the freeze-thaw tests - they became even stronger.
This relatively fast-reacting polymer ceramic cement is 100% inorganic, non-combustible and moisture resistant granting these, as well as other characteristics, to filler materials and reinforcements. In contrast to other magnesia cement systems, this cement will accept and perform very well with most of the known fillers; aggregates and various waste materials, including most metals. This cement utilizes a cold fusion curing process to encapsulate the various filler materials. No water is used in the mixing stage allowing low permeability resulting in excellent freeze-thaw resistance.
This new concrete involves pumice, basalt, fly-ash and other minerals. It flows like liquid plastic as a coherent single flow product, making bricks and other products without gaps or air holes using a cold process.
Its fire resistance surpasses cement considerably. A flame could be held on some of the products at 3000F without transfer through the surface.
