Density: LECA® 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 LECA® is likely to absorb approximately 30% by weight of water. 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 LECA® 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.

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 4-10mm Leca® provides the definitive base for lightweight soils. For bottom or peripheral drainage we would recommend the 10-20mm grade Leca®

As a component in lightweight concrete. and as a backfill to structures, especially for restricted areas, for instance backfill to chimney linings where the product's small size and spherical shape allow for ease of placement.

Expanded clay granules are made by firing selected clays in a rotary kiln. 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.

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.
