After many years of outstanding performance and beauty, Cambridge Pavingstones with ArmorTec® remain recognizably smooth and dense with rich color. The sustainable benefits are a result of a proven formula used in manufacturing ArmorTec® - only environmentally friendly raw materials, super fine sand granules, and cement of the highest quality.

Without ArmorTec®, the Pavingstone will look less attractive as the sand and cement wear over time. This detracts from the appearance of the surface and contributes further to their worn look.

The Importance of ArmorTec®

How Are Concrete Pavers Produced?

All brands of concrete pavers comprise a mix of sand, aggregate, cement, pigment and a limited amount of water. Cambridge has advanced this age-old technology to a level of perfection that we call ArmorTec.

What Is The ArmorTec Advantage?

All Cambridge Pavingstones are made with ArmorTec and have a smooth and dense surface with rich color that will maintain its true integrity. No unsightly holes, or blemishes from stone particles will show on the surface because only super-fine sand granules (WITHOUT ANY small and large stone particles), along with the highest quality cement are used.

Need More Quality Assurance?

ArmorTec meets or exceeds standards set by Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI) and ASTM International.
