Green Concrete Mix
Suitable for general concrete work, the mix offers a similar set-time and strength characteristics as standard QUIKRETE Concrete Mix. QUIKRETE Green Concrete Mix reaches a compressive strength of 3,500 psi in 28 days and meets the performance requirements of ASTM C 387. The mix also qualifies for points within the Recycled Content and Regional Material classifications as defined through the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED Green Building certification. QUIKRETE Green Concrete Mix is currently available in northern California and the Pacific Northwest with additional expansion based on market demand and interest.
Natural Stone Veneer Mortar
The line includes the standard QUIKRETE Veneer Stone Mortar, which can be used in mortar joint applications, as a bonding coat to adhere stone to a wall and as a 3/8- to ?-inch scratch coat over expanded metal lath, and the QUIKRETE Polymer Modified Veneer Stone Mortar for improved mortar to unit compatibility and optimal bond strength. The mortars are available in 80-pound bags and 3,000-pound super sacks. Custom formulations are available including integrally colored blends to meet specific large project requirements.
