Construction

Thanks to lightweight and heat and sound insulation characteristics of the aggregates , the main applications areas :

Lightweight Masonnery Blocks : From 350 kg/m³ to 1.000 kg/m³. The thermal insulation from: 0.12 W/m.k t

Lightweight Concrete : Densities from 1000 kg/m³ to 1.750 kg/m³ respectively with strength from 5MPa to 25 MPa

Lightweight Mortar : Densities : 330 kg/m³, lambda value : 0,071 W/mK

Agriculture
