Pozzotive® CMU

Product Description

Pozzotive® 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® 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.

Ground Face

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.

Matte Face

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.

Split Face

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.
