Pozzotive is a high performance pozzolan, made from 100% recycled post-consumer glass. This glass is diverted from multiple post-consumer waste streams, including bottle redemption and curbside pickup. The glass is processed to remove all organics, and then milled to a precisely graded, powder-like substance in a size appropriate for Portland Cement replacement. Pozzotive can be used in a multitude of products, such as our architectural CMU and WESTBRICKS®.
With the introduction of Pozzotive into our manufacturing process we have seen major improvements to the quality of our CMU. This post-consumer material while meeting or exceeding all ASTM standards has created a stronger and denser CMU that provides a lower permeability rating that the Industry Standard. While doing all this we are able to be environmentally responsible and contribute to LEED and High Performance Construction nationally.
