HIGH-STRENGTH LIGHTWEIGHT INSULATING STRUCTURAL CONCRETE. FOR STRENGTHENING FLOOR SLABS, CONSTRUCTING COMPOSITE SLABS, REDUCING THERMAL BRIDGING, AND FOR ALL TYPES OF MASONRY CONSTRUCTION.
Latermix Beton is a bagged pre-mixed lightweight insulating structural concrete based on Laterlite Structural special expanded clay, and is ready for use after mixing with only water.
High structural strength: Latermix Beton 1600 is a genuine high-strength class LC 30/33 (Rck 35 MPa – 350 kg/cm2) structural concrete that can be used for loadbearing structures in compliance with EN 206 and Eurocode 2.
Lightweight: Latermix Beton 1600 contains Laterlite Structural Expanded Clay as a replacement for traditional aggregates that significantly reduces weight by at least 800 kg (0.8 tonne) per m3. With a density of 1600 kg/m3 (as opposed to 2400/2500 kg/m3 of an ordinary concrete), it is classified as an LWAC (lightweight aggregate concrete) and is particularly suitable for reconstruction work, for strengthening existing structures, or to prevent excessive loading in seismic zones.
Insulating characteristics: Thanks to its lambda (? -thermal conductivity) approx. 3 times lower than that of an ordinary concrete (?= 0.54 W/mK as opposed to 1.9 W/mK), it reduces thermal bridging, increases the energy efficiency of buildings, and prevents the development of building pathologies such as condensation and mould.
Reliable performance: The binder dosage and grading curve of the components is factory checked and maintained constant. Using only water for the mix means that the performance of the completed component can be controlled effectively; this is particularly important for guaranteeing strength in structural applications and eliminates the risk and inaccuracy associated with products mixed on site.
Multipurpose: Can be used as a replacement for traditional concrete in any external or internal application including where a fair-faced finish is required, or for industrial floors.
Non-combustible: This is a 100% mineral non-combustible product (Euroclass fire rating – A1) that is safe, including in the presence of fire.
