Key Advantages

WEIGHT REDUCTION

High quality lightweight concrete materials provide a weight reduction of up to 1450 kg/m3

Weight reduction is due to the use of post-consumer recycled materials in all LCS mix designs

INTERNAL CURING

Due to the use of LCS aggregates, all mix designs benefit from internal curing

The small particle size of LCS aggregates ensures consistent dispersion throughout all mixes to achieve even internal curing  

ACCELERATED CURING TIME

The use of our proprietary binding material (SCM) results in a faster curing time and reduced construction costs through value engineering

ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

Reducing environmental impact
  • We’re replacing natural aggregates like sand (finite resources) with post-consumer recycled materials to reduce environmental impact

  • By reducing the density of lighter concrete, we’re allowing for a reduced carbon footprint through substructure volume reductions, transportation efficiencies and conscientious engineering

  • Custom mix designs can be made with sea water 

MIX PERFORMANCE PROPERTIES

  • Maintains low chloride permeability and is alkali-aggregate and sulphate attack resistant

  • LCS lightweight aggregates increase R-values, greatly improving thermal efficiencies

  • High bond and flexural strengths

  • Compressive strengths from 5 – 60 MPa

  • Capable of curing in temperatures as low as -10º C

  • Comparable testing results to conventional concrete in splitting tensile, scaling resistance and linear shrinkage, all while being lightweight

High bond and flexural strengths

All claims and product test results are verified in compliance with CSA and ASTM standards

DECREASED CONSTRUCTION TIME

decreased construction time

Environmentally-friendly lightweight concrete that cures in a fraction of the time, significantly increasing productivity and reducing build time

Lightweight concrete, shotcrete, and grout mix designs are made to achieve full strength while decreasing densities, without sacrificing the mix performance

LONG-TERM
COST SAVINGS

  • Build time is significantly reduced with a short curing time of 7 days or less

  • Transportation costs are vastly reduced due to lighter weight loads and increased shipping efficiencies

  • Lighter densities can reduce your substructure costs, resulting in concrete volume decreases

  • Structural integrity is maintained with a density reduction up to 60% less than conventional mixes 

  • Through life-cycle assessment, long-term cost savings are realized
