STYROPOR-LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE (IN GERMAN)

A MIXTURE OF PRE-EXPANDED STYROPOR PARTICLES, CEMENT AND ADHESION AGENTS, PRODUCES A LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE WHICH HAS AN EXTREMELY LOW DENSITY, GOOD THERMAL INSULATION, AND A RELATIVELY HIGH COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH. IF THE CORRECT PROPORTION OF STYROPOR IS ADDED, IT IS POSSIBLE TO PRODUCE LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE STRUCTURAL UNITS WHICH HAVE A DETERMINED BULK DENSITY AND REPRODUCIBLE PROPERTIES. THE CONCRETE CAN BE MIXED USING NORMAL CONSTRUCTIONAL TOOLS AND ITS MANUFACTURE IS DESCRIBED. SOME PRACTICAL TEST RESULTS ARE PRESENTED. /A/LCPC/RRL/
