McTech Group Announces Worlds First Biodegradable Wet Curing Blanket
Innovative Technology Provides Sustainable Alternative to Traditional Concrete Wet Curing Methods
ATLANTA, Ga., June 15, 2010 -- Adding to a long list of technological advancements for the concrete construction industry, McTech Group Inc. announced today significant improvements and innovations which make UltraCure® NCF and UltraCure® DOT, the world’s first completely biodegradable concrete wet curing blankets.
Contractors, architects and owners now have a selection of biodegradable single-use wet curing blankets from the UltraCure line of disposable concrete curing products to specify or purchase for wet curing applications. The introduction of this major product improvement means the long-term environmental impact of wet curing products used in normal construction practices will be forever altered. UltraCure is the industry’s first and only choice for a sustainable green wet curing product.
“The key challenge was to develop a cost effective single-use biodegradable wet curing system that maintained the superior performance of our patented UltraCure products”, said Rick Jordan, V.P., “UltraCure now meets that challenge, and will enable concrete construction projects to meet increasingly stringent environmental regulations worldwide”.
The new curing blanket system is made from super absorbent sustainable cellulose fibers and a patented vapor barrier constructed to aerobically or anaerobically decomposes in a very short cycle. “It is the only completely biodegradable concrete curing blanket on the market, and in a fast-moving green revolution, UltraCure brings unequalled cutting-edge science to the curing of high-performance concrete.” Jordan added.
