Unilock has unveiled EcoTerra, meant to replace traditional Portland Cement with a carbon-neutral alkali-activated mineral binder that results in a 100 percent cement-free face-mix.
“We’re excited to bring EcoTerra to the hardscape market as a part of our efforts to pave a greener way,” said Elaine Willis, Unilock director of sustainability. “The world is focused on cutting carbon emissions, and this unique solution is just the first step in the evolution of concrete paver production. ”
- With no cement in the face-mix, there is no chemical reaction that creates efflorescence. This means EcoTerra pavers deliver more vibrant color that lasts longer.
- EcoTerra pavers are manufactured with EnduraColor, a two-step manufacturing process that ensures a more refined surface and brighter color.
- EcoTerra pavers offer higher compressive strength to last longer.
- EcoTerra pavers have a water repellant quality, which helps keep the surface cleaner. Additionally, dirt and stains won’t penetrate the surface, further contributing to the clean look and low maintenance.
EcoTerra pavers are available in a 4-inch by 12-inch plank shape, smooth surface with a shot-blast finish in a choice of two colors: light steel gray and light opal blend.
