WHAT IS CELLULAR CONCRETE
It is a cellular cement mortar with infinite air bubbles trapped inside its mass, thus preventing and minimizing the transmission of heat and sound, providing high thermal and acoustic insulation.
Our specially developed Cellular Concrete is lightweight, yet structurally stable with excellent compressive strength and no cracks. Through our unique application method (no-stops for refilling) we can achieve a perfect finish and prevent future cracks, due to the absence of connections and therefore weak points.
HOW IT IS PRODUCED
In a special machine assembly, cement is mixed with water, in the presence of a catalyst in a predetermined amount, which mechanically generates the specific cellular bubble trapping state in the controlled-volume cement-based aqueous solution. Thus, a foamed cement with very low mass is produced and pumped through suitable flexible piping, transported to the point of application.
TROY Cellular Concrete provides an Effective, Economic and Reliable thermal insulation solution, with multiple benefits
- High Thermal Insulation and sloping, in one action
- Saving Energy and Enhancing indoor air-comfort
- High compressive and flexural strength (non-collapsing)
- Continues pumping with no connections, and no cracks
- Great durability and stability over time (long-life material)
- Light weight (starting at 300kg/m3)
- High Sound Insulation (of 50 decibels or more)
- Suitable for Indoor & outdoor applications
- Non-flammable & fire-resistant
- Can be combined with all waterproofing systems
Depending of the density, from too light to heavy, and depending on the needs and particularities of each structure, we can achieve several different applications.
For Roof Insulation the ideal type is 300-350 kg / cubic meter density, and the minimum thickness starts at 5 cm
For Floor Insulation the density should be minimum 350 kg / cubic meter, and 3 cm minimum thickness. Due to its mechanical properties, it is an excellent substrate for floors that have as final cover marbles, tiles, mosaics, without the need for a reinforcing concrete layer.
Other applications can be achieved as well, such as vertical wall sandwich panels filling, leveling floors and basements, filling of pedestrian pathways, filling concrete cavities and uneven structures, and even backfilling
