Propex Concrete Systems has announced an agreement to sell and support Elemix additives from Monaca, Pa.-based Nova Chemicals Corp. Specially formulated polymeric spheres dosed at 1-15 lb./yd., the additives distribute uniformly in concrete mixes for structural and nonstructural applications. Their closed-cell, honeycomb-like interior structure enables a matrix to absorb energy, reduce cracking, and, in a hardened state, improve thermal efficiency.
We will be able to leverage existing [Propex] relationships with ready mix producers, contractors, design professionals and engineering companies to deliver the sustainable, lightweight and durable benefits of Elemix additive to the concrete industry, says Nova's Todd Becker, Elemix additive global business director.
Adds Propex Concrete SystemsÌ Chris Crouch, executive vice president, Elemix is a great fit with our concrete solutions--providing our team the opportunity to deliver another innovative value-added concrete product to our customers.
