INTEGRATED ADDED VALUE FOR YOUR APPLICATIONS
WITH PORAVER® EXPANDED GLASS
The many benefits make Poraver® expanded glass a proven raw material for high-quality building materials and industrial products. Poraver® can be used as a lightweight aggregate in dry mortars, tile adhesive and lightweight concrete, as the basis for acoustic and lightweight panels, or as insulating material. We are here to help you!
Poraver® can be used loose, as thermal insulation fill for non pressure load requirements. The granules can also be used cement- or resin-bound as leveling fill for pressure load requirements. The spherical granules are very lightweight and non-combustible. They are completely free of harmful materials, do not settle, can be easily handled and do not offer a breeding ground for pests and mold.
Application with fills
Lightweight concrete with Poraver® meets high standards and offers fire protection, thermal insulation and sustainable construction with ease of recycling in addition to simple processing and a high load capacity.
Application with lightweight concrete
PLASTER AND DRY MORTAR
Our proven lightweight filler with its many positive characteristics meets the most demanding product requirements. Poraver® is ideally suited for combination with lime, cement and other binders. Its spherical grain shape and low density optimize the formulation as well as the material properties of the final products.
Application with plasters and dry mortar
Panels with Poraver® can do more: They are not flammable, not sensitive to cold, highly resistant to moisture and have very good acoustic properties. In addition the panels are easy to cut and fasten as wood, for example.
Application with lightweight panels
MINERAL CASTING AND POLYMER CONCRETE
When Poraver® is used, the density of mineral casting components can be reduced by up to 70 percent. Less binder is needed and good mechanical properties are achieved.
Application with mineral casting and polymer concrete
PAINTS AND WALLPAPERS
Because of its stable, lightweight and round grain, Poraver® is ideally suitable as a texture component. Applied to wallpapers, Poraver® improves the acoustic properties of the product.
Application with paints and wallpapers
Innovative syntactic foam composites with Poraver® expanded glass in a plastic or metal matrix meet the requirements for low weight together with high strength given predefined deformation properties. Applications include support cores in hybrid structures for crash absorbers or in lightweight chassis.
Application with automotive
Our lightweight filler Poraver® is an ideal 3D printing material. The small spheres have only 20 % of the weight of sand and can be used in the common additive manufacturing methods with 3D powder bed printers.
Application with 3D printing
Lighter, more pressure-resistant, more productive, easier to use or more environmentally friendly. Poraver® opens up many possibilities for optimizing your products. As a lightweight aggregate, Poraver® has been used worldwide in a wide variety of applications. We build on innovation and are ready to develop new applications.
