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.

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 generally blended with growing media to improve drainage and provide insulation.
An effective application has also been identified for growing marginal pond plants.

Green Roofs: The web contains advice on many and often contradictory methods for producing green roofs. Nevertheless 4-10mm Leca® LWR provides the definitive base for lightweight soils. For bottom and peripheral drainage we would recommend the 10-20mm grade Leca® LWA.

Non-Structural lightweight concrete: Suitable for fake rocks, theatre props and lightweight repairs.

Inert Backfill: Especially for restricted areas, for instance backfill to chimney linings where the product's small size and spherical shape together with convenient and strong packaging allow for ease of placement.
