Foamed Concrete

Contact us for sales or technical advice on this product


Foamed concrete is a lightweight, highly flowable, limited strength mix, also referred to as flowable fill material. The mix contains a high and stable mass of air that reduces the density and significantly improves the placing characteristics giving it self-compacting characteristics with no requirement for vibration. Because of the high air content foamed concrete has excellent insulation, sound-absorbing and fire resisting properties. Strength grades of between 1 – 10 N/mm2 can be achieved making this mix ideal in applications where future excavation may be necessary. A versatile material foamed concrete is ideally suited to fill voids where limited, difficult or unstable access is a problem such as disused vaults, sewers and pipe lines or for neutralising redundant petrol/diesel storage tanks.
