concrete is cast in densities form 20 to 120 pcf for insulation, semi-structural,
and geotechnical applications. Elastizell concrete is produced by adding
Elastizell expansion material to a properly designed cementitious mixture.
floor fills are cast over wood subfloors and precast concrete. They provide
sound conditioning and improved fire resistance for new construction and
are excellent for floor leveling in building renovation.
roof decks are cast over galvanized steel decking (corrugated or fluted),
precast or cast-in-place concrete, and wood. They provide positive drainage,
thermal insulation, fire-resistance, seismic values, and a solid base
for the built-up or single-ply roofing membranes applied over the deck
EF (Engineered Fill) is cast in-situ as an alternative to a standard geotechnical
application. Elastizell EF is a low-density (load-reducing) fill for applications
such as behind retaining walls, at bridge approaches, over culverts and
under roadways, and over poor soils, to name just a few.
Elastizell is applied according to manufacturer's or applicator's recommendations
for floor, roof, and geotechnical fill installations. Other uses should
be carefully analyzed before application to insure that the material satisfies
the intended requirements.
specific mix designs may be customized for cast densities ranging from
20 pcf to 120 pcf.
discrete cell structure of Elastizell results in lower water absorption
than concretes with interconnecting cells or concretes made with expanded
aggregates. Elastizell concrete requires only about one-fourth the mix
water of expanded aggregate concretes. Its water/cement ratio is similar
to that of standard concrete.
formulas for lightweight concretes apply for all ranges of Elastizell
Concrete with appropriate substitution for compressive strength (f’c)
and density (w).
may be customized through mix designs to include fly ash, lightweight
aggregates, fibers and other additives for specialized performance of
the standard mixes.
is generally site batched, mixed and pumped into place. The cast density
is checked periodically. Specific application requirements are outlined
in floor fill, roof deck, and geotechnical fill literature.
