Our Pozzotive® and Pozzotive Plus™ Bricks offer an attractive green alternative to traditional clay bricks by using post-consumer content and regional material. Both lines are manufactured with up to 30% of Pozzotive®, a post-consumer Supplementary Cementitious Material (SCM) derived from post-consumer recycled glass. Pozzotive Plus™ also uses up to 50% of regionally-recycled processed concrete aggregates.
Both products may contribute to Materials & Resources LEED™ Credits like Construction Waste Management (MR Credit 2), Recycled Content (MR Credit 4) and Regional Materials (MR Credit 5).
The design matrix of both products can be colorized at our manufacturing facility, offering endless design possibilities while reducing harmful Volatile Organic Compounds. The result: an interior/exterior facade or partition with a graffiti-resistant finish that stands up to highly-trafficked areas without deterioration.
- For every ton of Portland Cement that is replaced by Pozzotive®, approximately 95% of coal Btu energy equivalent is saved.
- For each ton of Pozzotive® manufactured, approximately one ton of CO2 is saved from being released into the atmosphere.
- Pozzotive® reduces landfill volume and fossil fuel emissions that are produced by trucks and equipment used to transport and compact landfill garbage.
Both lines meet and exceed the requirements of ASTM C-1634 (Concrete Facing Brick), ASTM C-90 (Loadbearing Concrete) and ASTM C-129 (NonLoadbearing Concrete).

This finish celebrates the beauty of recycled content. An integral pigment can be applied to our mix design to further enhance the brick, which would compliment any green building project by offering endless design possibilities.
This finish has a more monochromatic look. Additionally, an internal pigment can be applied to our mix design to further enhance the brick; the aesthetic possibilities are endless and can be matched to your specific needs.
Variations during the splitting process assure no two bricks are alike and enhance the appearance of the finished wall. In addition to our standard colors and shapes, custom made colors and shapes are also available while maintaining the appearance of rough-hewn stone.
Appearance of colors varies based on finish.
