Hi Folks!

Tonite, a group of us went to the fellow (Paul) talked about
an old lady who invented something called 'Geo Bond'....he said it was a
material made from concrete, water and undisclosed other materials. This
material can be molded or shaped into any form. He also said the lady
refused to patent it, preferring to keep its formulation proprietary.

When exposed to a cutting torch, he said you could place your finger
within a half inch of the torch point and feel no heat. The material was
totally fireproof.

A test was made of two small toolshed type buildings, one construced of
wood, the other of GeoBond....wood was piled near the buildings,
saturated with kerosene and set afire.....within a short period, the wood
shed was completely burned down, the GeoBond building had only soot
marks, no damage.

The idea being this would make homes not just fire resistant but
completely fireproof....from what I heard, the components of the material
are not toxic so this GeoBond could be a great safety material.
