Eastern Concrete Introduces New Line of Storm-Resistant Concrete
EULESS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 01/07/13 --   Eastern Concrete
Materials, Inc., a U.S. Concrete, Inc. (NASDAQ: USCR) company, has
announced the introduction of two new high-performance concrete
products: Con-Tite(TM) EF Waterproof Concrete and Sea-Site(TM) EF
Saltwater-Resistant Concrete. Built on U.S. Concrete's EF
Technology(R) platform of environmentally friendly concrete mix
designs, the new products are targeted for use in rebuilding ravaged
areas affected by Superstorm Sandy and protecting concrete structures
subject to damage from water, and air or waterborne salts. The
products are immediately available to the New York metropolitan and
northern New Jersey construction markets.  
Con-Tite EF Waterproof Concrete eliminates the need for the corrosion
inhibiting admixtures used to protect the steel reinforcement that
holds concrete together when it cracks and it can also eliminate the
need for surface-applied vapor barriers. Sea-Site EF
Saltwater-Resistant Concrete is a highly durable, crack-resistant
slag and cement concrete mix that helps protect steel reinforcement
from corrosion, self-heals small cracks, resists dirt and washes off
more easily than ordinary concrete. Sea-Site can also be used in
underwater placement applications. 
According to Gary C. Graziano, AIA, Eastern Concrete's vice president
of sales and marketing, "EF Technology concrete mixes are not only
better for the environment, but also deliver superior long-term
performance that produces less shrinkage, cracking and permeability
than conventional concrete mixes. As a result, they are stronger,
cleaner, greener, better-looking and more durable."  
For more information about Eastern Concrete's new Con-Tite EF
Waterproof Concrete and Sea-Site EF Saltwater-Resistant Concrete and
other product offerings, contact Gary Graziano at 1.800.882.7242.
