- A Global Foam Supplier-
The world's leading supplier and manufacturer of foam liquid concentrates for the production of low-density cellular concrete and advanced engineered foam solutions

Permeable Low-Density Cellular Concrete Applications

The production of permeable low-density cellular concrete (PLDCC) is a patented process (US 8,172,937 B2) using AQUAERiX , an advanced synthetic foaming agent that utilizes and open-cell technology. The bubbles coalesce allowing water to pass through. Permeable low-density cellular concrete provides proven solutions for applications in the construction and mining industry where drainage is important. AQUAERiX permeable low-density cellular concrete is environmentally safe, has no flash point, and supports sustainable development, possibly increasing the number of points awarded to a building under the LEED system. Testing by Middle Tennessee State University documents the ability of AQUAERiX permeable low-density cellular concrete to protect the environment by filtering contaminants that can adversely effect soil and water.

Typical Applications:
  • Sports Fields & Golf Courses
  • Drainage Structures
  • Scour Protection
  • Tunnel Backfill
  • Underground Tanks & Pipelines
  • Soil Stabilization
  • Permeable Road Base
  • Foundation Drains
  • Gabion Retaining Systems
  • Annular Fill
  • Load-Reducing Engineered Fill
  • Water Retention
  • Pipeline Beds
  • Greenhouse Floors
  • Fill for Abandoned Mines
  • Impact Absorption
  • Bridge Approach & Landslip Repair
