Quantity:

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


Pack Volume: 50 ltrs (Approximately three times the volume of a pack of "normal" aggregates) Weight per pack approximately 15kg
Note: The packing configuration on the one m3 pallet allows for 21 packs which supplies an actual volume of 1.050m3

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

Coverage: One bag will cover approximately 1 Sqm at 50mm depth.

Granule Size: Approx. 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.

Expanded clay granules are made by pelletising and 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 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:
Top quality clean general purpose expanded lightweight clay with a minimum of fines backed by the worldwide LECA®LWA 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 a substrate in 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® LWA.

Backfill to structures: Especially for situations of restricted access for example back gardens and roof terraces to houses and shopping malls and for providing lightweight fill to planters .
