Metakaolin

Premium Metakaolin Additive

R-E-D Metakaolin

Metakaolin is an additive engineered to provide a high level of pozzolanic reactivity.

R-E-D’s METAKAO 110 HR is a Metakaolin that is superior supplementary cementitious material (SCM) product.  Specifically engineered to provide a high-level of pozzolanic reactivity, enhancing concrete and cement-based product performance.  METAKAO 110 HR really provides added desirable properties, specifically as a primary SCM or in ternary blends of concrete.

 

R-E-D’s METAKAO 110 HR additives is a ultra-fine material produced from the aluminum silicate mineral kaolin that meets the technical specifications for ASTM C-618 and AASHTO M295-11, Class N pozzolans. The proprietary manufacturing process optimizes pozzolanic reactivity and ensures the product meets the highest standards of quality and consistency.

Metakaolin & Sustainability

R-E-D Industrial Products Metakaolin provides a premium in function and application sustainability. This is how our Metakaolin product line can make a difference in longevity and viability. See the information below to see how Metakaolin can provide confidence that you are making the sustainable choice for your next project.

Applicability for Sustainability:
  • Increased water resistance 

  • Increased mechanical strength in concrete structures

  • High thermal resistance 

  • Anti-corrosive properties that improve the durability of concrete subjected to harsh conditions, promoting lower life cycle costs

 
Implementations:
  • Metakaolin’s high resistance to water enhances longevity for concrete structures in proximity or are immersed in water such as bridges, dams, and tunnels promoting longer vitality.

  • Higher mechanical strength, when used in UHPC mixtures, can promote lower life cycle costs

  • Higher thermal resistance makes it a perfect SCM for projects in areas where climate change has created increased levels of temperature change increasing the deterioration of concrete structures

 

Why:
  • Reduces the number of materials needed for concrete vertical columns coupled with its strengthening properties cuts back on use and increases sustainability

  • A green product that reduces overall co2 use reducing greenhouse gas emissions 

  • An ethically sourced product that can boost your green initiatives

  • Produces a smoother finish that cuts back on cracking promoting more efficient infrastructure 

 

Sustainability Fact: According to the National Transportation Research Non-Profit group that 28 percent of the nation's major roadways interstates, freeways, and major arterial roadways in urban areas are in "poor" condition. This means they have so many major ruts, cracks, and potholes that they can't simply be resurfaced they need to be completely rebuilt [1].
