ekkomaxx™ cement, manufactured by CeraTech Inc., recently received an evaluation report ESR-3691 from ICC Evaluation Service(ICC-ES), providing evidence that the industry's first non-portland, green cement system complies with the 2012 International Building Codes (IBC) and the 2012 International Residential Code (IRC).
Building officials, architects, contractors, specifiers and designers can utilise ICC-ES Evaluation Reports to provide a basis for using or approving ekkomaxx™ in construction projects under the ASTM C150 standard.
ICC-ES thoroughly examined CeraTech's product information, test reports, calculations, quality control methods and other factors in accordance with ICC-ES Acceptance Criteria AC459 to ensure the product is code-compliant.
"Having ICC-ES validate our cement system as meeting or exceeding ASTM International's C150 standards industry is ground breaking. It sets a new precedent and represents the first time in the construction industry that a better environmental cement technology, our ekkomaxx™ family of high performance cements, has been established as meeting or exceeding the construction standards for Portland cement," explained Jon Hyman, CeraTech's President and CEO.
CeraTech's ekkomaxx™ Cement concrete utilises 95% recycled fly ash and 5% readily renewable liquid additives.
