WESTBRICKS™ with Pozzotive®
Westbrook has created the WESTBRICKS™ product with architects in mind.
WESTBRICKS™ takes technology that was previously only available in oversized CMU and extends it into modular sizes reminiscent of clay brick, providing colors, textures and lengths (cored and solid) unique to Westbrook Block.
Colors, Sizes and Finishes
WESTBRICKS™ extends CMU into the modular sizes previously exclusive to clay brick. With four lengths, including 24” (not available in clay brick), 5 thicknesses, and both solid and hollow core configurations, WESTBRICKS™ provides more options than any other “brick” manufacturer.
The color palette offers color options previously unavailable in clay brick.

Pozzotive® Supplementary Cementitious Material and Sustainability
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™.
