Cellular Concrete

Lightweight cellular (foamed) concrete is made by mixing pre-formed stable foam and cement-based slurry. Due to its lightweight, high quality and availability has increased usage of this concrete compared to traditional concrete.

 Specially formulated cellular concrete has an excellent property of self-compacting therefore no compaction is required. It steadily flows out of a pump outlet to fill the mould because of this it can be pumped over major height and distances.

Types of Cellular Concrete based on Density

  • High Density Cellular Concrete

This is a structural grade concrete having the density ranging from 1200kg/m3 to 1800 kg/m3. It is used in the construction of load-bearing walls, partition walls and in the production of pre-cast blocks for load-bearing brickwork.

  • Medium Density Cellular Concrete

The density range of this cellular concrete is 800-1000 kg/m3. This uses in pre-cast blocks industryfor non-load-bearing brickwork.

  • Light Density Cellular Concrete

Light density cellular concrete has a density in the range of 400 –600 kg/m3. This has a good quality against thermal and sound insulations. It provides resistance against fire accidents, termite and moisture absorbent.

Advantages of Cellular Concrete

  • Lightweight
  • Fire resistance
  • Thermal Insulation
  • Acoustical Insulation
  • Environmental Friendly
  • Cost-Efficient
  • Cellular light-weight concrete is also termite-proof and resistant towards freezing issues

Application of Cellular Concrete

  • Cellular lightweight concrete is utilized as thermal insulation in the form of bricks and blocks over flat roofs or non-loading walls.
  • Utilized in production of heat-insulated light wall panel.
  • Uses in cement and plaster based light plate.
  • Utilized in Special of light heat-resistant ceramic tiles.
  • To prevent freezing in bridge construction, cellular concrete is used.
  • It is used in drainage system to avoid soil water.
