Product of the week: Cemex
POROFOAM – FOAMED CONCRETE
Porofoam is a range of low-density foam concrete designed specifically for voidfill, stabilisation and other lightweight applications.
Porofoam is manufactured using CEMEX admixtures and is available in a wide range of densities and compressive strengths to suit your application and requirements. The product is easily placed with no compaction required and can be produced onsite by our foam generation units or delivered in trucks premixed.
PLACEMENT & USE
Porofoam can be pumped, horizontally, vertically, or directly placed in layers of up to 1m single lift depth in order to maintain the required air void structure. The fluid nature of Porofoam allows the concrete to free flow into even the smallest of spaces making it highly suitable for voidfill applications. Porofoam also exhibits no settlement characteristics that may occur with granular fill materials allowing a much more stable fill.
VOID FILL APPLICATIONS
- Mass Void fill
- Trench fill
- Culverts / Subways
- Sink holes
- Road Pavement
DENSITY & STRENGTH
Porofoam can be tailored to your requirements, our technical team will create a suitable mix design for your application. Porofoam can achieve strengths of up to 15 N/mm2 and our unique production process allows us to produce an extremely wide range of dry densities from as low as 300kg/m3 up to 1800+kg/ m3. For strengths and densities outside of this range our team will work with you to provide a solution
- Highly Fluid, easy to work with
- Self Levelling, saving time on site
- Can Be Pumped with reduced need for additional workforce
- Freeze / Thaw Resistant
- Insulating Properties
- Load Spreading with negligible risk of subsidence
