Pozzotive® CMU

Product Description

Pozzotive® and Pozzotive Plus™ Concrete Masonry Units (CMU) and Architectural CMUs offer structural soundness, durability, and fire resistance in a variety of aesthetically appealing finishes. They contain up to 30% post-consumer Supplementary Cementitious Material (SCM) made from post-consumer waste glass, which is the only white post-consumer pozzolan that lends itself to the creation of white CMU, and enjoys a high solar reflectance and high albedo effect. Pozzotive Plus™ CMU also contains up to 50% regionally recycled post-consumer aggregate which creates the ultimate green CMU.

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).

  • 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 CMUs meet and exceed the requirements of ASTM C-90 (Specification for Loadbearing Concrete Masonry Units) and ASTM C-129 (Specification for NonLoadbearing Concrete Masonry Units). We also offer Architectural CMUs, Sound Cell CMUs, as well as a wide variety of shapes, sizes, finishes and colors of Bullnose, Chamfered and Monumental Custom CMUs.

Finishes

Ground Face

The smooth surface of our Ground Face Collection complements any building design while showing off the natural beauty of the aggregates and integral color, and can be used for entire walls as well as decorative accents. In addition to our standard colors and shapes, custom made colors and shapes are also available.

Matte Face

Our Matte Collection reveals a monochromatic look of the integral color that is chosen, with a textured finish that can complement any building design, and can be used for entire walls as well as decorative accents. In addition to our standard colors and shapes, custom made colors and shapes are also available.

Split Face

Our Split Face concrete masonry units replicate the appearance of rough-hewn stone. Variations during the splitting process assure no two blocks 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.
