Low density and high compressive strength: Despite the low bulk density (190 - 200 kg/m³) GEOCELL® is very pressure resistant due to its spherical structure.
Excellent thermal insulating properties: The multicellular structure of the GEOCELL® spheres provides a very good Lambda value of 0.07 W/(m·K).
Excellent sound absorption: GEOCELL® expanded glass effectively absorbs noise.
100 % mineral: GEOCELL® is non-combustible and releases no harmful gases when heat is applied. GEOCELL® is classified according DIN 4102 (DIN EN 13501-1) as construction material class A1 and suitable as fire extinguishing agent.
Spherical grain shape: The spherical shape gives GEOCELL® special features like great free-flowing properties. This facilitates an easy feed and dosage in your manufacturing process and comfortable mixing in formulations. The closed and rough surface in combination with the spherical shape provide very good adhesion of binders.
Health-friendly material: GEOCELL® is pure glass, inert, non-toxic, solvent-free, fibre-free, odour-neutral, anti-allergen, radiologically completely safe. The amorphous glass structure prevents the danger of silicosis
Resistant: GEOCELL® is resistant to frost, heat, decay, aging, bacteria, moisture, acids, organic solvents and provides no host for pests, rodents, nor mould growth. GEOCELL® is perfectly suited for the combination with alkaline binders like lime, cement, water glass and other binders.
Long-term stability: GEOCELL® is dimensionally stable even after years (no material shrinkage, no swelling).
Environment friendly: Using post-consumer recycled glass for the production of GEOCELL® saves natural resources.
Just like glass: GEOCELL® is recyclable and supports a sustainable building regarding LEED.
