Juno: A revolutionary alternative binder technology

By February 26, 2018 Concrete

JUNO ConcreteSurface Tech’s pioneering product, JUNO, is an advanced admixture that reduces the cost of concrete without sacrificing performance.  Juno can be used to partially substitute traditional binders in standard concretes, thereby reducing cost, reducing shrinkage and mitigating CO2 emission.  These value propositions are compelling, particularly for those who consume large quantities of concrete.

“JUNO is a revolutionary concrete product that incorporates leading edge technologies that allows for partial binder replacement used in concrete mix designs,” said Steve Santa Cruz, President, Surface Tech. “This results in an improved performance at a microscopic level as well as a significant reduction in material costs.”

JUNO can be utilized in a wide range of conventional concrete building applications, but also as a geo-solution including:

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.

Juno ConcreteControlled Density Fill

JUNO can be used to reduce the cost of Controlled Density Fill (CDF).  CDF is a low-strength concrete used for backfilling holes and trenches when high compaction is needed.  With JUNO, a contractor can reduce the need for cement and replace it with a lower-cost option.


JUNO can be used in Rip-Rap as a low-cost alternative to Portland Cement-based binders. Rip-Rap is essentially large stones or pieces of concrete (recycled or virgin) used to protect underlying soil from runoff due to rain or tidal erosion.
