A lightweight cement block is a good way to keep you safe. These blocks are a lot lighter than conventional concrete and have a high fire rating. They are also durable. This makes them an ideal choice for commercial and leisure developments.
Lightweight cement blocks have been manufactured for a number of years. There are several methods to create them, including using calciumoxychloride, sodium hydroxide, and sawdust.
Lightweight concrete blocks have a higher fire rating and insulating properties than conventional blocks. The materials used in making them have lower environmental impact.
The ASTM C 90 standard was developed to help ensure that concrete masonry units have uniform colors and textures. It also requires that the minimum heat flux required for ignition is known.
The tidbits mentioned in the ASTM standard were found in the present invention. These include the LIFT ™ apparatus used to test the material’s ignitability. Likewise, a 25 mm thick slice of a cement block was tested to see how many sparks it emitted.
Also, a green roof is a great way to lower the temperature of the inside of a building. When a green roof is combined with light cement blocks, the resulting system is a very efficient way to reduce the transfer of heat to the interior of a structure.
In addition, a green roof can increase the quality of the environment. Another great use for this technology is the creation of extensive modular green roofs.
