Pumice as a Lightweight Aggregate

  • Neutral pH Level
  • Reduces ‘dead load’ weight
  • Easy to shape
  • Cuts haulage costs
  • Increases Elasticity
  • Cost effective

Pumice in construction was originally used by the Romans circa 10AD. Pumice aggregate was used to create a lightweight concrete mixture, most famously The Pantheon in Rome used pumice within its structure.


lightweight-aggregatePumice Aggregate is seen as a preferred choice to other materials due to its weight, where the pumice is a third lighter than other materials.When the pumice is used in a concrete mix, it increases the elasticity of the product, providing a more flexible compound, this is beneficial for high rise buildings which have to cope with additional natural elements like wind forces.Pumice Aggregate is a user friendly product for the workforce when completing tasks such as drilling or sawing.
