Ceramext® technology can transform even low-cost waste materials into advanced impermeable high strength ceramic compositions. Ceramext LLC has developed new hot-forging methods and advanced ceramic compositions for which some recent patents have been granted and more are pending. Some new ceramic compositions are derived from waste materials including mine tailings and coal fly ash. Waste materials can be recycled using this technology to produce high quality floor, wall and roof tiles, building cladding, bricks, pavers, and other ceramic products suitable for marketing at competitive prices. Porcelain quality tiles can be made by only screening raw materials, eliminating the expensive grinding and spray drying steps.
