Item # A300, A300 Geopolymer Concrete

GEOPOLYMER-A300 (A300) is a 3/8-inch nominal size aggregate (quartzite) Geopolymer concrete material designed for resistance to A300 acid and general purpose use. A300 is resistant to degradation in various concentrations of hydrochloric acid ranging from 5-percent to 98-percent with little to no mass loss. A300 can be utilized in low or high slump applications for construction of secondary containment, various feature construction such as drain systems, foundations, walls, flatwork, and every other application typically observed with Portland Cement mixtures.

Features
Moderately resistant to other acids except hydrofluoric.
Resistant to hydrocarbon, chloride, and sulfate exposure degradation.
Resistant to solvent exposure.
Green Technology.
Can be colored.
Utilized at slumps ranging from 1 to 9 inches.
Fiber reinforced (micro).
Interior and exterior applications.
Resistant to freeze and thaw cycles.
Can be used in hot or cold climates.
Improves corrosion protection when placed on metal features.
Supplied in Super Sacks, 55-lb bags, or Ready Mixed Concrete delivery.
Resistant to hydrochloric acid exposure at concentrations ranging from 5-percent to 58- percent.
Recommended Uses
A300 is used in most any pneumatic or conventionally placed concrete applications where the completed feature will be subject to hydrochloric acid or many other chemicals and reagents in very hot or very cold climates. A300 is many times utilized in the Petrochemical, Fertilizer, Food & Beverage, Mining, and Foundry Industries, and, the Oil & Gas Industry including off-shore drilling platforms due to its chemical resistance and complete resistance to chloride and sulfate attack.

Wet Density140 lb/ft³
Heat ResistanceUp to 1000 ºF
Additional Information
A300 complies with building code requirements for interaction with conventional reinforcing steel, strength, and modulus properties, but does not comply with typical industry Portland Cement specifications due to the absence of Portland Cement. Cost savings combined with superior quality is not just a goal, it's inherent with A300.
