Applications

The benefits of lightweight concrete have long been established in major construction projects around the world including buildings, spans and floating structures:

  • structure design benefits from a substantial decrease in overall weight for example, less foundations (or more floors for the same foundations).
  • longer spans mean more developable space.
  • insulating properties can yield much improved performance and/or thinner elements depending upon design mix.
  • efficient handling (reduced craneage) and haulage of lighter elements.
  • trials have demonstrated interesting possibilities for architectural finishes
  • superior thermal and acoustic insulation properties.

 

The principle applications for novagg® lightweight aggregate are in construction. This sector is increasingly using ‘green’ procurement for materials. Sustainable novagg® is ideal for this purpose:

 

  • lightweight concrete (pre-cast and in-situ)
  • lightweight concrete blocks
  • lighweight screeds
  • lightweight geotechnical fills
  • insulation
  • drainage
  • great potential in offshore windpower - lightweight concrete masts
