WITH PORAVER® EXPANDED GLASS
Whether as a lightweight filler in model construction, as a decorative material, as a soil conditioner in plant substrates, prefabricated sanitary parts or in desalination compresses for historic masonry, Poraver® optimizes products in many different ways. The areas of application are diverse. Let us know your ideas and requirements!
PORAVER® VERSATILE APPLICATIONS – EXAMPLES
OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY
As a weight reducing lightweight filler with high-strength, Poraver® is used to optimize high grade well cements for the oil and gas industry. Poraver® can replace harmful additives and simplifies the process.
Poraver® is excellently suitable as a substrate material for microorganisms, active substances or metal particles. Due to the large surface area of the Poraver® grain, a very good accumulation is obtained. Especially for fixed-bed reactors, for flocculation or biofiltration, Poraver® is suitable due to the special settlement and backwash properties.
Poraver® can be optimally used as backfill material in restorations and repair work to replace destroyed structures or create a new, stable base. Poraver® is used in this way worldwide in the restoration of historical buildings and art objects.
The simple construction of filter zones for outdoor swimming pools or swimming ponds is possible with Poraver®. Water continually flows over Poraver®in the filter zone and a biofilm forms on its surface as a result. In this way, the water is deprived of nutrients and it becomes biologically clean and stable.
SOIL ADDITIVE AND GROW MEDIA
Poraver® expanded glass granules are used in horticulture, aquaponics or hydroponics applications to improve the air and water storage capacity. As soil additve in plant substrates the mineral granulate ensures the permanent soil structure and a better water absorption. The alkaline Poraver® can also reduce the acidification of soils and substrates.
PREFABRICATED SANITARY ELEMENTS
Poraver® serves as a mineral raw material for the production of prefabricated sanitary parts. The elements are dimensionally stable, more accurate and provide an optimal surface for direct tiling. In addition, flow noise is reduced and the flame resistance is improved.
Dyed or coated, Poraver® is ideal for decorating purposes. The creamy-white granules can be dyed particularly easy, float if required and do not burn. The applications include interior design, window dressing, model building, floristics, hobby and handicrafts.
