Product Information

Pack Size: 25 ltrs - Approximately 8kg

Granule Size: Approx. 10-20mm.

Density: LECAŽ is a super-lightweight aggregate with a dry bulk density of approximately 280 kg/m3.

Typical Moisture Content:
When saturated for at least 24 hours, 10-20mm LECAŽ is likely to absorb approximately 30% by weight of water with a resultant bulk density in the order of 500kg/m Our products are generally supplied in a dry state, however, please specify at the point of ordering if this is important to your application.

Description:
This is a genuine and original premium LECAŽ product manufactured by Saint Gobain and distributed in the UK by Specialist Aggregates. This 25ltr pack is offered for small projects, trial and research purposes.
Expanded clay granules are made by pelletising and firing selected clays in a rotary kiln at a very high temperature. As it is fired, the organic compounds in the clay burn off forcing the pellets to expand and become honeycombed while the outside surface of each granule fuses to give a ceramic shell. The resulting granules are lightweight, porous, and have a high resistance to crushing.

Application & Use:
Top quality clean general purpose expanded lightweight clay with a minimum of fines. The product is a dark brown colour and offered for use in situations where aesthetics are not a prime consideration, in particular:

As a substrate in hydroculture / hydroponics, and blended with other growing media to improve drainage and provide insulation.

Green Roofs: The web contains advice on many and often contradictory methods for producing green roofs. Nevertheless our 10-20mm LecaŽ provides the definitive product for bottom and peripheral drainage. To create lightweight soils we would recommend our 4-10mm grade LecaŽ.

As a mass backfill to structures, especially for situations with restricted access, and for providing lightweight fill to planters.

Being a natural product expanded clay aggregate contains no harmful substances, it is inert with neutral pH, The granules are resistant to frost and chemicals, and will not break down in water. They are also non-combustible and have excellent sound and thermal insulation properties, further they can be used with cement to make a lightweight concrete mix suitable for fake rocks, theatre props and lightweight repairs.
