New SEI Sponsor: AERO Aggregates

posted Feb 18, 2018, 6:16 PM by robert miller

Foamed glass aggregates were originally produced in Scandinavia during the early 1990’s for use as a thermal barrier in road construction. Due to their very low unit weight (8-15pcf), their applications have grown throughout the civil engineering market. Today foamed glass aggregates are used as lightweight fill on highways, bridge abutments, retaining walls, and green roofs. Other applications include backfill of foundations for drainage, insulation (prevention of frost heave) and reduction of lateral loads against structures. The material is produced from 100% curbside recycled glass.
