About Astra-Glaze-SW+® Glazed Masonry Units

Echelon’s ASTRA-GLAZE-SW+® units are pre-faced architectural glazed concrete masonry blocks that have a thermoset glazing compound permanently molded to one or more faces. This glazing compound is cured and heat-treated in gas-fired tunnel kilns — thus becoming an integral part of the masonry unit. The glazed concrete masonry units are molded in individual molds, ensuring dimensional uniformity of the glazed facing regardless of minor variations in the block.

Trenwyth Astra-Glaze SW+® glazed CMU blocks are manufactured in both Pennsylvania and in Arizona. The Astra-Glaze SW+® blocks manufactured in Pennsylvania are lightweight units conforming to ASTM C90, while the concrete blocks manufactured in Arizona are medium weight units, also conforming to ASTM C90. The glazed concrete surface or all Astra-Glaze SW+® CMU blocks features a satin-gloss finish and externally heat-polymerized cast-on facing conforming to ASTM C744. All Astra-Glaze SW+® blocks contain Trenwyth-approved integral water-repellant CMU admixture at the time of manufacture to resist mold and moisture.

In The Field

When we first surveyed the post-Katrina damage, we took note of construction materials that survived. Glazed concrete block and Glazed tile best weathered the inundation and could be cleaned and reused." Modern Masonry Vol. 2 Issue 3 Read More
