(Mason, Texas) Mason Greenstar, Inc. has waded through an evolution of change in bringing its environmentally friendly and sustainable building material, Greenstar BLOX®, to consumers. From changes with ingredients to changes in production methods, the technology has stayed the course when proving its worth by passing the most stringent of tests for building materials. As the accomplishment of mass production is closer than ever, all roads are leading to changes in the ways we construct our homes and buildings in the United States. Here are ten things you may not know about the past and future of Greenstar BLOX®.
(Las Vegas, Nevada) Greenstar BLOX®, manufactured by Mason Greenstar Inc. in Mason, Texas, has been selected as the Industry Choice Award Winner for the 12th Annual “Most Innovative Products Award” at the 2014 World of Concrete, a construction industry tradeshow, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The environmentally friendly building product was chosen as the winner by popular vote in the Masonry Materials & Equipment category.
“It is a great honor for our young company to have been chosen for this award.” said, President of Mason Greenstar, Zach Rabon “Our team has worked very hard to develop our product to a level where it could be recognized in such a program, as well as in promoting the technology on such a grand and global scale.”
Building with Greenstar BLOX® is construction made simple. Never before has a building block exhibited the performance that Greenstar BLOX does. Greenstar BLOX provide structural integrity and insulation qualities every building must possess; in a single process.
Other wall systems use concrete to fill the open cells or honeycomb spaces. This is usually required to provide structural strength, but the concrete provides a poor insulation value of R-0.9.
Greenstar BLOX mortar is made from the same recycled cellulose, cement, water, and additives that are used in the production. Greenstar BLOX attach with mortar to the slab, footing, or sub-floor. This forms a monolithic wall system that will stand up against any other masonry product on the market. Greenstar BLOX far exceeds the expectations of conventional masonry.
