Description

Porofoam is a range of lightweight foamed concretes designed specifically for void fill, stabilization and other lightweight applications. It is manufactured using CEMEX admixtures and is available in a wide range of densities and compressive strengths to suit the application and requirements. The product is easily placed with no compaction required, and can be produced on site by a foam generation unit or delivered in trucks, pre-mixed. It can be pumped horizontally, vertically, or directly placed in layers of up to 1 m 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 void fill applications. The product also exhibits no settlement characteristics that may occur with granular fill materials, allowing a much more stable fill.

Benefits:

  • Can be pumped.
  • Highly fluid.
  • Lightweight.
  • Freeze/ thaw resistant.
  • Self-levelling.
  • Load spreading.
  • Insulating properties.

Applications:

  • Mass void fill.
  • Trench fill.
  • Sewers.
  • Pipelines.
  • Tanks.
  • Culverts/ subways.
  • Sink holes.
  • Road pavement.
  • Reinstatements.
  • Tunnelling.
