Styrofoam + Ceramic Spray =
Profit Instant Housing
A styrofoam house sounds like a really stupid idea but, when the styrofoam is sprayed with a special ceramic spray called Grancrete
), it becomes twice as strong as structural concrete.
It is also cheap, $10 a square foot to build a house as opposed to $150 a square foot for a regular home.
And, where regular concrete can take up to three weeks to fully cure, Grancrete dries in a single day.
The potential impact of this product for developing countries and natural disaster prone areas could be truly incredible.
