About Us


Who is AquaBlok?

AquaBlok, Ltd. is an independently owned, privately held manufacturing company based in Northwest Ohio. Founded by civil and environmental engineers and scientists, it is backed by decades of experience in coating technologies and environmental remediation. Supported by a strong group of private investors and an experienced Board of Directors, AquaBlok is well-equipped to continue its history of technical innovation and strong engineering design and application support.


What is AquaBlok?

AquaBlok has applied a range of patented composite particle manufacturing approaches to develop sealing and remediation materials that are simple in concept: a thin layer of high-value powders are coated on a stone, aggregate, or other core material. Typically, these powdered coating materials are bentonite, modified minerals, or active amendments. This approach provides a cost-effective way to accurately, uniformly, and simply provide placement and maximize performance. AquaBlok offers standard product formulations and can customize products to incorporate other proprietary amendments to meet site-specific conditions and challenges. From low-permeability sealing to in-situ treatment-specific formulations, AquaBlok’s product technology has been recognized, and AquaBlok-based solutions have been accepted by the U.S. EPA and state regulatory programs for remediation projects throughout the US. They have been applied to a wide range of sealing and geotechnical engineering applications.
