ECC Blended Mix

The most advanced mix design available is ECC (Engineered Cementitious Composite). This mix was originally developed for use in seismic zones for its high ductility. It has been modified to improve the mix characteristics while maintaining performance. The strength of our ECC recipes comes from the combination of particle gradation and the addition of a high dosage of fiber. From a creative standpoint, ECC can be mixed to unique workabilities, allowing for many variations in finish. While this mix takes some getting used to, the professionals that use it swear by its vast aesthetic and performance potential. It is very strong, it will bend before it breaks, and it produces unrivaled finishes and durability.

ECC Blended Mix

ECC uses all white ingredients, naturally curing to a bone white. The mix can be pigmented with any of the Buddy Rhodes Color Wheelâ„¢ color collections.. The mix has all of the necessary high-performance ingredients preblended, including curing polymer, such that only water and necessary reinforcement need to be added. The workability of the mix can be changed with the addition of our series of water reducers.

COVERAGE AND CEMENT CONTENT

This mix is typically done at 0.75” - 1” thick. This mix is often cast at 3/8” thick for objects like tiles, but considerations must be given in the handling and support of the piece.
