A new kind of ceiling sealer for the cement factory is out.
Called Cement Tank, it works by attaching to the top of the cement truck and making it “bounce” back and forth inside the cement container.
The Cement Tanks use “sulfuric acid” to dissolve the cement in the container.
“The acid can then be sprayed on the cement and the cement tank will release a chemical that will seal the cement back in place,” explains Daniele Giaccarelli, who built the tank.
“We are now working on a new version of this product that we think will work better for cementing.
We’re looking at it as a temporary solution to protect the cement, rather than a permanent fix.”

The acid dissolves the cement into a solution that can then penetrate the concrete and “reinforce the concrete,” Giaccarenci says.
This process also creates a small crack that can be sealed with a cement patch.
Cement tanks also have a few other features, including a “durable adhesive” coating that helps to keep the tank clean, and a “lubrication” feature that prevents the tank from rusting when exposed to moisture and weather.
This last feature is important to note because cracks can damage the cement inside the tank and cause the tank to deteriorate.
“When the cement is not completely saturated with the acid, the solution will slowly drip down into the concrete until it’s a solid block,” Giacarelli says.
If you’re considering a cement tank, you should also consider a sealer like the ones used to protect windows and doors.
If your house is not sealed properly, the acid will also break down the seal and leak into the living area.

The cement industry has a long history of producing cement tanks for use in cement factories.
The first cement tank was built in 1853 by James G. Boggs in the New York city factory of Sibley & Co. These tanks have since been used for decades to create concrete for walls and floors, as well as for other applications.
“Cement tanks are made by the same methods that the world has been using for centuries to produce building materials, including brick, mortar, brickboard, and concrete,” explains G.M. Moll, an environmental engineering professor at the University of California at Berkeley.
“These tanks are designed to last a lifetime, so they can be used in many different applications.
If it’s concrete, it can be a home building product.
If a factory wants to make a cement-based roofing product, it should consider the use of cement tanks in their concrete building product, because that is what is going to be used.”
