Learn More about STAR Refined Pozzolan
How will STAR Refined Pozzolan improve my concrete performance?
STAR Refined Pozzolan contributes to the overall quality and performance of concrete with increased ultimate strength, greater durability, and reduced bleeding and drying shrinkage, improved workability and finishability. STAR Refined Pozzolan is a manufactured product that surpasses the quality and consistency of byproduct fly ash.
Will STAR Refined Pozzolan perform in conjunction with Slag?
STAR Refined Pozzolan can be used in slag cement to mitigate ASR resistance, reduce segregation, and improve sulfate resistance.
Does STAR Refined Pozzolan help with green building and sustainable construction?
Class F fly ash, like STAR Refined Pozzolan, is one of the best strategies to defend against deterioration due to Alkali-Silica Reactivity (ASR). Reactive fly ash also reduces permeability which delays the onset of reinforcing steel corrosion.
Is STAR Refined Pozzolan compatible with chemical admixtures in concrete?
The only sure way to know how any admixtures, chemical or mineral, behave together is to test them. Independent testing shows that concrete made with STAR Refined Pozzolan has essentially the same air dosage rates as plain Portland mixes.
Is STAR® Refined Pozzolan considered an environmentally-responsible material?
Yes. STAR® Refined Pozzolan is a 100% post-industrial recycled material from coal combustion to produce electricity. Using STAR® Refined Pozzolan as a mineral admixture in concrete reduces the demand to manufacture Portland cement and other virgin materials. We also convert 100% of the fly ash that would otherwise have been sent to a disposal site into a useful product.
Will STAR® Ash affect my concrete mix design?
STAR Refined Pozzolan can be used in more concrete mixes and at higher dosage rates. STAR Refined Pozzolan will not affect the ability of your air entraining agent to build and maintain an air void system in concrete.
Is STAR® Ash considered an environmentally responsible material?
Yes, coal ash from ponds or landfills is harvested and transformed into a consistent, low LOI, Class F fly ash for encapsulated beneficial use. Removing coal ash permanently from ground storage and recycling it for beneficial use in concrete is an environmentally responsible solution for people and the environment.
