Geocell Aggregrate

Geocell Applications

GEOCELL® foam glass aggregate is a high quality product made from post-consumer recycled glass. It meets the highest quality requirements and provides outstanding features, which has no other product in this variety. GEOCELL® is 100 % mineral and combines low density with a high compressive strength. In addition to its very good thermal and sound insulating properties, it is also resistant to moisture, fire, chemicals and aging - a true "all-rounder". This combination of positive properties is providing many advantages and making GEOCELL® suitable for different industries.

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.

Bound Fills

Bound GEOCELL foam glass aggregate can be used everywhere where a light and insulating floor system is required. The mineral-bound, pressure-resistant packing used for leveling of floors as leveling compound over cables and pipelines. The healthy living material guarantees excellent insulation with the highest fire safety and a fast construction progress. Due to the low moisture content, it is after a day already easily accessible.

Static considerations play an important role in the use of expanded glass GEOCELL for balconies and terraces. Balconies and roof terraces are only limited loads. Since GEOCELL expanded glass a much lighter material than other drainage materials - such as Gravel beds - is, in the insulation of roof structures can be reduced significantly by weight.

Loose fill thermal insulation

GEOCELL® foam glass aggregate has great free-flowing properties due to its spherical shape and easily fills every void in beamed ceilings, floors and walls for thermal insulation. It is also very easy to cover pipes and cable ducts. Facing formwork for vertical interior insulation can be easily backfilled too. The environmentally friendly GEOCELL® fill is very light, non-combustible, moisture-resistant and provides long-term stability.

Challenges:
  1. Managing imposed load on structure
  2. Managing screed thickness
  3. Achieving insulation, acoustic and fire characteristics in a single layer
Advantages:

  2. Excellent thermal insulating properties: The multicellular structure of the GEOCELL® spheres provides a very good Lambda value of 0.07 W/(m·K).
  3. Excellent sound absorption: GEOCELL® expanded glass effectively absorbs noise.
  4. 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.

There is an increasing demand for light-weight concrete products. Whether the demand is from:

An engineering standpoint - reduced load

Health & Safety - manual handling

Commercial Benefits - reduced transportation costs

the introduction of additives is becoming very common.

The manufacture of blocks, bricks and pre-fabricated sills are common examples of such innovations.

Challenges:
  1. Reduction in weight.
  2. Additive does not compromise the integrity of existing product
