TAKTL® Architectural Ultra High Performance Concrete | Facade + Wall Panels, Rainscreen Cladding, Custom Elements
The material unit cost of lightweight concrete is typically higher than that of normal-weight concrete, but the unit cost usually is more than offset by the overall reduction in concrete volume and steel tonnage for the structural system.
HIGH PERFORMANCE STRUCTURAL LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE ... prices in recent decades and corresponding increase in the production costs of these ... high-performance ...
For LBM dealers, structural steel's supply chain is much more accessible than that of precast concrete, except that steel's use has fluctuated downward with recent commodity prices while precast's popularity is growing steadily among home builders.
High performance concrete (HPC) 1. Visit To Download High-Performance Concrete 2. High-Value Concrete All concrete is high value! Cost of material (small) Cost of placement (significant) Cost of Replacement (HIGH)
The required properties of the lightweight concrete will have a bearing on the best type of lightweight aggregate to use. If little structural requirement, but high thermal insulation properties, are needed then a light, weak aggregate can be used.
The excellent durability performance of structural lightweight concrete made with expanded shale, clay or slate structural lightweight aggregate is a result of the ceramic nature of the aggregate, and its exceptional bond to and elastic compatibility with the cementitious matrix.
High Performance Concrete. High Performance Concrete (HPC) refers to concrete with a specified compressive strength of 6,000 psi and greater. By carrying loads more efficiently than normal-strength concrete, high-strength concrete can reduce the total amount of material placed and lowers the overall cost of the structure.
The ultra light density & high-performance thermal properties allow Lightherm to be applied as a Lightweight Topping, Bondek Application, System Levelling, Roof Insulation, Anti-Condensation Layer, Precast Element, PBU, PPVC, Drywall Infill, Structural Application and more.
HIGH-STRENGTH STRUCTURAL LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE ... Lightweight Structural Cellular Concrete or High-Performance Cellular Concrete [HPCC] / Air-
Structural lightweight concrete provides a more efficient strength-to-weight ratio in structural elements. In most cases, the marginally higher cost of the lightweight
Purpose of high performance lightweight concrete utilization is to reduce cost or enhance functionality of the structure or the combination thereof. The economy of high performance lightweight concrete is discussed. One might argue that, the production of high performance lightweight concrete is ...
NORWAY BRIDGES USING HIGH PERFORMANCE LIGHTWEIGHT AGGREGATE CONCRETE. IN: HIGH-PERFORMANCE STRUCTURAL LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE. The testing program developed for the first bridge in Norway utilizing pumping for placement of lightweight concrete is presented in this paper.
Design a lightweight high-performance concrete mixture, proportioned according to the American Concrete Institute Manual of Concrete Practice, ACI 211.2, Standard Practice for Selecting Proportions for Structural Lightweight Concrete.
Structural lightweight aggregate's cellular structure provides internal curing through water entrainment which is especially beneficial for high-performance concrete, (HPC). Internal curing improves the aggregate/paste contact zone which mitigates micro cracking.

Your Price: $90.50 USD. Member ... and reviews performance of structural lightweight aggregate concrete in service. This guide includes a definition of lightweight ...
High-Performance Structural Concrete Alternative. With over 50 years of combined experience in the industry, our team has created the effective lightweight concrete ...
Lytag ® lightweight aggregate concrete can provide the same level of structural performance as normal weight concrete so it can be used in exactly the same way.. A compressive strength of up to 65N can be achieved.
Lightweight structural concrete, also known as lightweight high- performance concrete, has several valuable characteristics such as excellent freezing and thawing durability, internal curing, and reduced dead load.
ITEM 01557.41 M - LIGHTWEIGHT HIGH-PERFORMANCE CONCRETE FOR THIN STRUCTURAL SLABS - BOTTOM FORMWORK REQUIRED 1 of 4 April 21, 1998 DESCRIPTION. Furnish and place reinforcing steel and lightweight high-performance concrete to construct thin
In most cases, the marginally higher cost of the lightweight concrete is offset by size reduction of structural elements, less reinforcing steel and reduced volume of concrete, resulting in lower overall cost.
The second way lightweight aggregate is used to improve concrete is in high-performance mixes (usually high strength), which tend to have low water content and high cementitious materials content. These are not lightweight concrete mixes but contain predominantly normal-weight aggregate and often have a high proportion of supplementary ...
