These materials are a unique ceramic particulate that was developed for reinforcing cement mortar and concrete as well as thermoset resins. They have been added to cast and molded hydraulic cement articles in place of or in addition to rock/stone/sand or other premium aggregates. As an additive to the mix, these ceramic aggregates add strength and crack/wear resistance. However, when deposited/exposed on the surface of various articles, unique, appealing visual effects can be achieved.
These ceramics can also be added into or deposited onto items based on polymer resins, plastics, plasters, metals, glass and many other materials to improve physical properties and/or give the article a warm, earth tone patterned appearance or mosaic design. By using glue or other adhesive systems, the aggregates can even be coated onto things such as wood or stone.
The ceramics are available in 1/8, 1/4, 1/2 inch (3, 6 and 12 mm) sizes in over 8 basic colors. The particulates are manufactured in random sizes in a flat profile (thick flakes). The potential number of applications are unlimited and simply require some imagination and experimentation.
Note: Price is based on a 1 gallon (4 liter) container (~10-12 lbs, ~5 kg).
