There are a wide range of applications for CLC. The properties of CLC varies depending on its density which makes it even more applicable than regular concrete. A mix with high density , such as 1800kg/m3, CLC is comparable to regular concrete in strength while a mix with low density, 400kg/m3, is weaker but alot lighter and has very low thermal conductivity. The density is set based on the application
A house consists of, among other things, a floor, walls and roof. These can all be casted with CLC in different densities. The walls has to be insulating and therefor needs a lower density CLC, 1200kg/m³, while the floors has to be strong and therefor a higher density, 1800kg/m³. A roof element could be precasted and reinforced at a very low density, 400kg/m³, making it highly insulating and lightweight.
CLC is ideal to use in a formwork. Not only because of it being very fluid and fills under window slots but also because of the accessability the Aercrete 626 and its hose gives.
As roads are subject to heavy use and exposed to bad weather the foundation has a tendancy to move and create cracks in the pavement. Aercrete CLC has been tested and proven to be a perfect foundation to minimize cracking and maximizing the lifespan of the pavement.
No job is to small or to big for the Aercrete CLC. As the Aercrete 625 mixes on demand, little to no waste is produced no matter the size of the job.
High insulation needs
Using a low density CLC is ideal for insulating anything with the need to keep heat or cold. district heat pipes is also a good example of its properties.
To prefabricate elements is often a prefered alternative while building on a large scale. A sandwich prefab wall may consist of outer layers of strong durable concrete while the middle layer is a very low density CLC. This ensures a high quality element with great insulating properties.
A floor foundation may need both good insulating properties as well as a strong top surface. This can be achieved by casting CLC in two steps. First pour a low density CLC, 600kg/m3, and let it set then cast a high density CLC, 1800kg/m3, as a protective layer on top.
Challenging indoor casting
Since Aercrete CLC has less viscosity than regular concrete the Aercrete 625 can pump it 200m horizontally or 30m vertically at an rate of 25m3/h in an easy to maneuver hose.
Due to its low viscosity the Aercrete CLC is highly suitable for void filling.
