Specialty Concrete – JUNO

Juno ConcreteSurface Tech provides solutions that address many common challenges involved with concrete construction today.  Our product portfolio includes branded-product solutions that mitigate cement use and basalt reinforcement, and improve the durability of infrastructure.

JUNO is a revolutionary alternative binder technology developed by Surface Tech engineers and certified technical specialists. Using cutting-edge advancements in mineralogy and nanotechnology, JUNO improves the performance of concrete at a microscopic level.

JUNO can be used to partially substitute traditional cement binders in standard concretes, as well as in specialty applications such as Soil Stabilization, Mass Concrete and Shotcrete.

JUNO can be utilized in the following applications:

Soil Stabilization
JUNO has been engineered to allow for more efficient and cost effective stabilization of the road base and subgrade. It is often custom blended for a given project based upon a site and soil conditions.

Controlled Density Fill (CDF)
CDF is a low-strength concrete used for backfilling holes and trenches when high compaction is needed.  By utilizing JUNO, Surface Tech’s proprietary alternative binder, a contractor can reduce the need for cement and replace it with a lower-cost option.

Rip-Rap
JUNO can be used in Rip-Rap as a low-cost alternative to Portland Cement-based binders.

“Surface Tech understands the evolution of concrete projects which enables us to develop solutions to address the acute needs of contractors,” said Bryan Goerger, VP/GM, Surface Tech. “JUNO delivers value to the bottom line by reducing the cost of concrete without sacrificing physical performance.”
