Light Weight Concrete

Weight reduction and thermal insulation 

Advantages of LWA in Light Weight Concrete

  • Reduced density

  • High compressive strength

  • Improved thermal insulation properties

  • Lightweight concrete with Poraver® is pumpable

  • Purely mineral, recyclable

In particular for weight reduction, LightWeight Aggregate replaces solid, heavy aggregates for lightweight concrete applications such as architectural precast construction, precast stairs, precast wall panels or bathroom modules. Depending on the formulation the strength of normal concrete according to DIN 1045 can be achieved. The reduced weight allows easy transport and results in freight cost savings.

The lower the density, the better the heat insulation – therefore LightWeight Aggregate’s porous grain structure creates the best thermal values. LWA is perfectly suitable for lightweight concrete blocks as well as monolithic or clamshell prefab wall systems. The lower weight allows a cost-reduced handling and shorter construction times.

With modern molding techniques and formulations, natural looking manufactured stone veneer is made of lightweight concrete (LWC). LightWeight Aggregate supports optimum results through its consistent quality and ease of processing. The low weight of LWC stone veneers saves both freight costs and installation time.

Specialized concretes with LightWeight Aggregate persuade with low weight, frost resistance, water resistance and durability. Especially the combination of low density and high grain compressive strength makes LWA the ideal lightweight aggregate for architectural concrete, fiber reinforced concrete or laminate/textile concrete.
