Burgess Optipozz

Due to its chemical composition and as a result of a unique heat treatment process BURGESS OPTIPOZZ™ is a highly reactive metakaolin that is categorized as a Class N Pozzolan. The term “highly reactive” means that OPTIPOZZ™ metakaolin is available to react with the free lime produced as a result of the hydration of the Portland cement.

By utilizing OPTIPOZZ™ metakaolin in a cementitious mix design, the working characteristics of wet concrete and finished properties of cured concrete are significantly improved.

By replacing 10% – 20% of the weight of cement in the mix design, OPTIPOZZ™ will significantly reduce efflorescence.

OPTIPOZZ™ in cement mixtures can:

  • Reduce permeability
  • Improve ease of finishing
  • Lower cement content (lower shrinkage)
  • Reduce efflorescence
  • Eliminate bleed water – capillary channels
  • Increase compressive and flexural strength
  • Increase chemical resistance & durability
  • Reduce ASR (Alkali Silica Reaction) by replacing 8% – 12% of the cement in a mix design

OPTIPOZZ™ Examples:

  • High Strength Concrete mix designs – Commercial buildings
  • Parking deck structures
  • Bridge decks, piers, pilings, seawalls
  • Pool plasters
  • Self-compacting (consolidating) concrete (SCC)
  • Self-leveling compounds
  • Concrete countertops
  • Shotcrete Faux (artificial) rocks
