Tragedy Leads to Technology
- Written by Mark Kuhar
January 7, 2012 – Eastern Concrete Materials Inc., a U.S. Concrete, Inc. company, announced the introduction of two new high-performance concrete products: Con-Tite EF Waterproof Concrete and Sea-Site EF Saltwater-Resistant Concrete. Built on U.S. Concrete's EF Technology platform of environmentally friendly concrete mix designs, the new products are targeted for use in rebuilding ravaged areas affected by Superstorm Sandy and protecting concrete structures subject to damage from water and air or waterborne salts. The products are immediately available to the New York metropolitan and northern New Jersey construction markets. Just another way the construction-materials industry is looking to technology in the wake of tragedy.
