What is Earth-crete cellular concrete?
Benefits of Earth-crete cellular concrete:
Raw Material Savings (No gravel required and less sand)
Noncorrosive ( ideal for oceanfront conditions)
Sound Absorption (No echo like other conventional concrete)
Much more durable than wood construction (reducing maintenance and upkeep costs)
Provides 100% compaction to fill spaces entirely without shrinkage
Low water absorption and permeability (eliminates termites/insects/rodents as found with wood construction).
Shock wave absorption resulting from Earthquakes/Hurricanes
Resistant to High heat and High freeze conditions.
Provides excellent Thermal Insulation (up to 500% better insulation)
Provides Improved Fire–Rating (Saves on Insurance costs)
High slump (virtually self-leveling)
Steel–Reinforcement (less steel required as less dead-load)
Offers a broad range of densities and compressive strengths
Lightweight (reduces transportation costs)
Panels poured at factory or at building site
