After many years of outstanding performance and beauty, Cambridge Pavingstones with ArmorTec are recognizably smooth and dense with rich color. The sustainable benefits are a result of a proven formula used in manufacturing Cambridge Pavingstones - only super-fine sand granules and granite, one of the world's hardest rocks (WITHOUT ANY small and large stone particles) and cement of the highest quality. You will not find unsightly holes or blemishes from stone particles revealed on the surface of Cambridge ArmorTec Pavingstones.

Without ArmorTec, the pavingstone will look faded as the sand, cement and color wear off. Small holes (voids) seen on the pavingstone without ArmorTec detract from the appearance of the surrounding surface areas and contribute further to their worn look. Stone particles in various sizes become exposed on the surface leaving it rough and worn-looking.

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.
