Up to 50% lighter than conventional building aggregates, the lightweight aggregate stocked and supplied by MCM offers a natural alternative material for construction and civil engineering projects. With in-house stocks of Lytag and other supply options available, we have all your lightweight aggregate options covered in different grades, density and colour.
Ultra-lightweight and strong Argex aggregates have been hugely successful lightweight construction materials for over 40 years. Made from Expanded Clay at 1100c, Argex pellets are extremely strong with a honeycomb structure that traps high air volume within the aggregate. Argex pellets are used to create high performing lightweight Concrete and as a Geo-fill lightweight material. Argex is non-combustible product and in lightweight concrete is an excellent thermal insulator with excellent acoustic insulation characteristics from the air contained within the aggregate. Argex poducts with a pellet strength of over 5n/mm2 are used in lightweight concrete production.
Lytag is a sustainable lightweight civil engineering bulk fill for use in highway structures, back fill and raising of surface levels and is made from natural materials that would otherwise become landfill.
In development: We are collaborating and developing a GRO approved lightweight roofing substrate. Sign up for updates on this and other technical, company and product developments.
