Developed by EdenCrete Industries Inc., EdenCrete® is a carbon nanotube enriched liquid additive that elevates concrete structures to new levels of strength and toughness. When added to concrete mixtures, it performs like multiple additives rolled into one. It boosts surface abrasion resistance and produces extremely low permeability while improving strength properties like no other product on the market today.
Good question. When added to concrete mixtures, EdenCrete® carbon nanotubes fill in spaces at the nanoscopic level between the hydrated cement particles. When concrete dries, instead of leaving porous openings that would allow water to penetrate or cracks to develop, these nanotubes create millions of flexible, strong carbon bridges throughout the structure. These carbon bridges greatly improve resistance to failure caused by bending stresses, resulting in greater resistance to abrasive wear and crack propagation. In fact, not only does EdenCrete® make concrete stronger, we believe it can also increase concrete longevity beyond traditional expectations.
EdenCrete® has undergone extensive research and development, laboratory testing, and field trials in different environments and projects around the globe. It has been vetted and allowed for use by the Georgia Department of Transportation for construction and maintenance projects in Class 24-Hour accelerated strength concrete mix applications and Class B concrete applications.
