UK: Cemex launches lightweight concrete

Cemex UK has launched Porofoam, a new range of lightweight foamed concretes which offer a range of densities.

The new concrete can be produced premixed with a density of as little as 300kg/m3, with other readymix producers in the market producing the lowest density of 800kg per m3.

The new range is specifically designed for void fill, stabilisation and other light weight applications and can be designed with a density from 300 to 1800+kg per m3 and compressive strengths up to 15N/mm2.

One of the first contracts, on behalf of Getjar, involved the supply of Porofoam 1500 to a site in central London with very limited access. The high consistence, free flowing properties of Porofoam made for easy placement with no compaction required.

Two other Porofoam contracts have  taken place, one in Hereford on behalf of Peter Duffy Ltd involving Porofoam 1000 where the product ‘exceeded the customers expectations’ and one in Ashton-under-Lyne in a tunnel infill.
