San Antonio, Texas, March 17, 2015 -- Australians are highly popular in San Antonio, Texas, after Australian basketball prodigies Patty Mills and Aron Baynes helped deliver the 2014 NBA championship for San Antonio, Texas. In appreciation, Texans have a quality product to export back to Australia, thanks to a local green start up named Titan Brick.
Titan Brick Inc. is a new environmental-friendly “earth brick” made of 90% dirt yet it’s two and a half times stronger than concrete. The brick has many advantages: it’s stronger, repels water, it's easier to install, more thermally efficient, requires 90% less energy to produce and it has a lower cost than conventional fired bricks.
“The first clay fired brick was developed roughly ten thousand years ago by putting clay in a mold and heating it,” says chairman and CEO, Corey Park. “And while every other aspect of our lives has changed since then, this essential building product is still basically made the same way today.”
Park continues and becomes particularly animated (only in the way a Texan can) when he speaks of the brick’s properties, “It has been a long road since we completed our first set of testing where everyone was amazed how great the brick performed. The hurricane testing showed the brick could withstand 240 mile per hour winds; equivalent to a category 5 hurricane or an F4 tornado. The best part was when the US Department of Energy’s analysis found the brick to be 50% more thermally efficient than conventional bricks. That really blew our minds.”
The secret to the brick is its set of non-toxic chemicals and unique manufacturing process. Park continues, “This is not ideological for us. The enormous green benefits of Titan are great but in the construction game it all comes down to cost. That’s where we think we have our biggest advantage.”
Currently, Titan Brick Inc. is seeking investors and industry partners. For those who are interested in learning more, please contact Corey Park via email at: [email protected]
