Lightweight Cellular Concrete (LCC) is a slurry mixture comprised of cement and water. It contains prefabricated foam to purposely create air gaps. This allows it to be used as a robust, lightweight, and cost-effective replacement for soil or fill in geotechnical applications.
When utilized as a lightweight fill poured on top of soft, compressible soils, LCC’s lightweight property decreases ground settlement. It also enhances the bearing capacity, the static stability, and the seismic stability of embankments.
An LCC mix is also extremely flowable (even over long distances), which allows it to be effectively and safely positioned in tight or challenging spaces. These may include pipes, trenches, tunnels, wall backfills, and other places where the regular placement of compacted earthen fill is historically challenging (if not impossible).
Because of these characteristics, LCC is a low-cost option for many geotechnical applications
Lightweight Cellular Concrete is quick in placement and setting time, savin you valuable time on your jobsite. Consider these additional beneficial characteristics of Lightweight Cellular Concrete:
