All Glass Mix Design

Posted on June 2, 2012 at 8:30am 1 Comment

Below is an all glass mix design I developed over the last 5 years. It has been field tested (thousands of sq. ft. by me and other fabricators) and laboratory tested (ASTM 1260, cylinders, etc).

This mix design is patent pending. I filed a patent application so no entity could file one and prohibit fabricators from making glass concrete using this mix design. It is different than the mix designs used by large scale fabricators (with patents on their mix…

Hey Dave,

I've been a member for a long time. In the last couple of months I no longer  can use my email with this site because I don't get email notices of replies to discussions in my mailbox anymore. I have to go on the site and search the discussions I'm involved in and see if anyone responded. This is annoying and I miss a lot of information I'm looking for. I've also tried to send personal messages to other members that I've "friended" and I'm getting no responses so I think they aren't getting my messages. This all renders the CCF site difficult to use. Any thoughts?

Thanks Dave, you're very kind. What a blast from the past - the company is limping along; I'm kinda AWOl these days, big life changes... Concrete has definitely had an impact on things. Hope all the gang is keeping the faith! Cheers.

I have completed several concrete projects but lately I have had issues with epoxy.

Have anyone ever come across were you have applied epoxy and after it has dried it started to crack after two days later or three? I have called the manufactured and they have not heard of this before. Here is the puzzling part, on one sample I sealed it and then epoxy and another straight epoxy and another water base paint then epoxy, with one I cleaned with alcohol and another cleaned with just water and they all crack. now another I sealed and then epoxy but then I sanded to give a dull look and no cracks. I'm looking for glossy finish because I add fiber optic to it and the glossy epoxy gives it a nice halo.

ok Dave here we go again.   I saw it happening this time.  I know that you have a lot going on but we need some technical help here.   I haven't had any problem on the Blue Forum, and the last time I tried to contact ning 3 times the and received NO replies.  This is what I know- This time  I saw the progress button (at the bottom of the screen repeating multiple times- I immediately cold shut down my comp.  I did not get the ?? minutes to edit offered-  it just started chucking repeats out again.   I need the interaction of this forum, and have no idea where to start with this problem.  It does not do it when I am replying to anything only when I post.   Please help me out with this.

Hey Dave,

You sent me a email today but without a return address. As you know I do not try to sell my product on your site. When I chime in it's not to sell product but to try and be helpful. I am a concrete artist first and have a product business on the side. I also like to be part of the concrete community and I'm not opposed to learning new things.

That said what are the costs to become a "supporter of the cause"? What does that mean anyway?
