Lytag lightweight aggregate (LWA) is specifically designed and manufactured to meet all the requirements of modern construction practice, whilst overcoming the prime disadvantage of concrete - its weight. Structural concrete, with compressive strengths in excess of 60 MPa can be produced with an effective reduction in dead load of approximately 25% over normal weight concrete. This means that considerable savings can be made in foundation and reinforcement costs. In addition, column, beam and slab sizes can be reduced thus saving in overall concrete volume and giving wider opportunities in design.
