AGRESLITH-C : WOOD AGGREGATE FOR LIGHTWEIGHT CONCRETE

AGRESLITH-C® is an engineered wood aggregate for lightweight and eco-friendly concrete. It provides weight reduction to concrete slabs without compromising their mechanical characteristics. It is used for constructions and renovations of residential houses, monuments or buildings. Check out our videos and implementation information for quick and easy use.

R&D department of AGRESTA developed concrete formulas with wood aggregate AGRESLITH-C® and cement, which are optimized for construction, renovation and interior design.

Properties :

lightweight concrete - sound absorption Sound absorption :
Limits noise pollution up to -55dB(A).
lightweight concrete - thermal insulation Thermal insulation :
Insulates at least 5 times more than conventional concrete.
lightweight concrete - low density Low density (Lightweight) :
From 500 kg/
m3 to 1200 kg/m3. It is up to 4 times lighter than conventional concrete.
lightweight concrete - mechanical resistance Mechanical resistance :
Compressive strength easily reaches to 6 MPa and tensile strength in bending is
3,5 MPa.
lightweight concrete - hygrothermal balance - RH Hygrothermal balance :
Helps to regulate indoor RH (relative humidity) at a comfortable and healthy level.
lightweight concrete - CO2 fixation CO2 fixation:
350 kg of carbon dioxide are fixed in each cubic meter of aggregate.
lightweight concrete - fire security M1 non-flammable Fire security :
Classified M1 «Non-flammable». It also doesn't release of toxic smoke during fire.
lightweight concrete - sawable screwable nailable Sawable, screwable and nailable :
Allows nail and screw installation without drill or rawlplug. It can be cut with a saw.

Application areas :

  • Screed implementation in all types of rooms and on any types of support.

  • Minimum thickness of screed should be 6 cm and it is suitable for all types of flooring (stone, parquet, laminate, vinyl or carpet flooring).

Dosage and implementation :

Dosages for different formulas :


Formula 500 Kg/m3 - Level adjustment


Formula 650 Kg/m3 - Natural lime based


Formula 800 Kg/m3 - Standard formula / Renovation


Formula 1200 Kg/m3 - Floor heating system


Mixing instructions in concrete mixer :


1)
Put water, sand and cement into the mixer according to the suitable formula.

2) Mix until these elements are homogeneous.

3) Gradually add polypropylene fibers.

4) Gradually add wood chips.

5) Mix in slow rotation.

6) Mixture is ready when aggregates and fibers are uniformly covered with cement.


Implementation instructions :

PRECAUTIONS BEFORE POURING

- Do not pour below 5°C.

- Cover the surface with polyethylene or breathable film (depending on support).

- Ensure that film covers corners efficiently.

- Leave at least 30 cm film in vertical ascent.

- Set up joints (expansion and contraction joints, fractionation and separation devices, etc.).

- Wire mesh panel is unnecessary if polypropylene fibers were added to the mixture.


POURING AND PLACING CONCRETE

1) Pour concrete mix onto your surface.

2) Compact slightly. Compaction must be uniform over the entire surface.

3) Ensure that edges and corners are properly filled.

4) Level the concrete across the entire top surface with a trowel or a smooth flat tool.

5) Optionally spread cement and sand onto the surface to fill cavities.

6) Cover the screed with a polyethylene film for 5 days, then remove it and ventilate the surface.


PRECAUTIONS DURING DRYING

- Do not operate on the slab during curing phase.

- Protect surface from sunlight, air currents and rain.

- Set up control joints 24 - 48 hours after pouring (if has not done before).
