Lightweight

poraFORM The solid precast wall-
system that will contribute to an efcient
and sound construction process.
Achieving the best results in thermal
insulation, enhancing sound protection
values, optimizing load carrying capacity
and maintaining high pressure resistance,
are just a few characteristics that
highlight the key benets of using the
monolithic precast wall systems
enhanced with Poraver

.
Thermally insulated wall
The insulating wall is a combination of
a heat-storing base layer on the inside
and a layer of insulation with excellent
insulation values on the outside. The
thermal insulating wall is purely mineral
and therefore rodent proof and masters
all the physical,
structural and
biological building
requirements with
above-average
values.
Poraver

offers ideal thermal


insulating benets for masonry
and wall systems comprised of
lightweight concrete. e. g.
the monolithic wall system
poraForm
the masonry brick CALIMAX 11
Insulating lightweight concrete
The addition of Poraver

expanded glass
granulate plays an important role in the
concrete production and proves its structural
and thermal insulating properties in a variety
of concretes.
Poraver

is a renewable resource which


allows the production of purely mineral
building materials that surpass above
average physical and ecological demands.
Thermal insulation is in this case of great
signicance. By adding Poraver

a harmonic,
monolithic building material arises, which
supersede, redundant time and cost inten-
sive thermal insulating systems.
Product Examples
Poraver

enhanced block
Optimizing the blocks perforation pattern
and lowering its apparent specic gravity
has enabled Poraver

enhanced blocks to
be developed with outstanding thermal
insulation and strength values. No additional
materials are needed to achieve thermal
insulation values required.

parts such as stairs, chimneys, or shutter
boxes, as well as facilitating material handling
on the construction site. Thanks to Poraver


all additional alternatives such as composite
systems or chemical insulating materials do
not need to be used.
Wall and oor elements
Concrete is also an innovative, high quality
construction material for interior wall or oor
design. The design oriented lightweight
concrete with Poraver

is used for the


production of precast elements and large-
sized panels used for walls and oors.
Because of the addition of different minerals,
glass granules and colour pigments unique
stone is created with endless artistic options
available.
Structural lightweight concrete possesses a
closed make up like regular concrete. The
difference to regular concrete is in the
composition, which means that instead of
regular aggregate granules, partially or
exclusively lightweight aggregates like
Poraver

are used.

Modular elements
Because of the weight reduction from
Poraver

, complete prefabricated rooms,


can be inserted into unnished buildings.
The ex factory prefabricated modules are
completely ready-wired with xtures and
ttings and can be easily inserted into the
building by crane. Due to the Poraver
enhanced special concrete mix the weight
is signicantly reduced and transportation
costs are minimized. The application of
Poraver

is also advantageous because of


its resistance to chemicals, heat and re.

Compressive strength of structural
lightweight concrete with Poraver

Besides Poravers excellent properties in


structural, physical and biological building
sectors its constant characteristics and
precise adjustment of the mixture are in
particular of advantage and is therefore
used in a variety of specialty concretes.
Product examples
Art and deco objects
Decorative concrete components from the
very simple to the most magnicent and
detailed elements of architectural design,
can all be infused with Poraver

. The
prefabricated concrete cast mixtures offer
the easiest of processing characteristics.
Besides their high strength, frost and water
resistance and durability the casting
mixtures have a signicantly reduced weight.
Because of the mineral aggregate Poraver

,
the visual and tactile feel are like stonemason
originals, further enhanced by Poravers

Poraver

offers astonishing

Specialized concrete
Composite concrete
Water sport and material enthusiasts made it
their goal to build canoes out of concrete. The
use of Poraver

allows the hull design of the


canoe to be engineered as thin as a couple of
millimeters. Because of the unique combination
of lighter weight, density and increased
stability, the quality in laminate and textile
concrete is greatly enhanced.
Exposed concrete
Concrete is the new design trend for walls,
stairs even furniture and heating elements
especially as exposed concrete it reveals a
modern impression. Surface effects from saw
ruff to velvety smooth are achieved by using
different form techniques. The use of Poraver


as an aggregate for concrete inspires to play
with colors and forms.

Poraver

is made up 100 % of the recycled


glass that accumulates annually in large
quantities through a practically perfect
collection system in the Federal Republic
of Germany. Only the tiniest glass fractions
which are no longer suitable to newly
produce bottles and glasses are used
for Poraver

. With ecological production,


Poraver

preserves natural resources,


thus contributing decisively to perfecting
the glass recycling processes. As one of
the few sustainably produced lightweight

therefore utterly unique. As a result of
this pioneering role, Poraver

has already
been bestowed with numerous prestigious
national and international awards, such as,
for example, the Blue Angel.
