Ceramext® technology can transform even low-cost waste materials into advanced impermeable high strength ceramic compositions. Ceramext LLC has developed new hot-forging methods for advanced high quality patented ceramic compositions. Some new ceramic compositions are derived from waste materials including mine tailings, quarry fines, biomass ash and coal fly ash. Waste materials (up to 100%) 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. With Ceramext technology, porcelain quality tiles can be made by only screening raw materials, eliminating the expensive grinding and spray drying steps.
Ceramext is responding to US space agencies to develop methods of manufacturing ceramic infrastructure from regolith (crushed rock), which is plentiful on the Moon, Mars, and other extra-terrestrial sites. Ceramext® technology does not require air, water, or binders allowing the building of habitat, launch pads and other structures from 100% in-situ materials.
