Lightweight aerated concrete application
«Pioner» Dry Mix usage:
Non-autoclaved aerated concrete (cellular concrete) is an infill material for drywall partitions (instead of rock wool or glass wool) which is becoming more and more popular in the UAE an MENA region. It has good thermal and acoustic insulation.
Lightweight concrete as a filler for walls
The best density for walls is 500 – 600 kg/cub.m. In this case:
· thermal conductivity is 0,12 W/(m*k)
· compressive strength is 1,0 - 1,1 N/mm2
From one ton of dry mix you can receive 1,8 – 2,0 cub. m. of ready cellular concrete. If you use 83 mm studs from 1 ton of dry mix you can cast 20 - 21 sq.m. of ready walls.
One team with one mixer (200 kg capacity) can cast 5 tons per one shift (8 hours) or 100 sq.m. roughly.
Non-load bearing partition walls consists of (approved by Dubai Municipality and the UAE Civil Defence):
- Cold formed steel C 90 mm;
- Cellular lightweight concrete 600 kg/m3
- Fiber cement boards 9mm on both sides.
