Experts in Foam Technologies for more than 70 years
The world's leading supplier and manufacturer of foam liquid concentrates for the production of lightweight 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
