LECA® LWA - Industry standard lightweight expanded clay aggregate in a 10-20mm grade Supplied pre-packed for collection to provide lightweight horticultural substrate and construction infill in particular where access is difficult or restricted.


Pack Volume: 50 ltrs (Approximately three times the volume of a pack of "normal" aggregates) Weight per pack approximately 15kg.

Pack size: Approximately 800mm x 400mm x 150mm.



Granule Size: Approximately 10-20mm.

Density: LECA® LWA is a super-light-weight aggregate with a dry bulk density of approximately 280 kg/m3.

Water Saturated Density:
When saturated for at least 24 hours, 10-20mm LECA® LWA is likely to absorb approximately 30% by weight of water with a resultant bulk density in the order of 500kg/m3

Description:
Genuine and original LECA® LWA manufactured by LECA(Saint Gobain) and distributed prepacked in the UK by Specialist Aggregates.

This 50ltr pack is offered for small projects, trial and research purposes.

Expanded clay granules are made by firing selected clay in a rotary kiln at a very high temperature. As it is fired, the organic compounds in the clay vaporise 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 good 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 non-structural lightweight concrete suitable for fake rocks, theatre props and lightweight repairs.

Application & Use:
Expanded lightweight clay with a minimum of fines backed by the worldwide Leca® brand. The product is a dark grey/brown colour and offered for use in situations where aesthetics are not a prime consideration, in particular:

Horticulture: As an inert substrate for 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 10-20mm Leca® LWA provides the definitive product for bottom and peripheral drainage. To create lightweight soils we would recommend 4-10mm grade Leca® LWR.

Backfill to structures: Especially for situations with restricted access, and for providing lightweight fill to planters .
