Hydroton is round pellet structured produced by firing natural clay at temperature of 1200 degree Centigrade ,which is also known with other names in global market like Expanded Clay Aggregate, Ceramsite,Leca, clay aggregate Hydroton, Hydrocorn etc.
Mainly used for Hydroponics/Aquaponics ,indoor containers and flower boxes, Bonsai Cultivation, Aquarium, Roof garden, Green vegetables cultivation ,Irrigation,water filtering
Extremely stable in both pH and EC,Light weight,strong and thermally insulating.Hydroton has a spherical shape resulting from the pelletizing technique used.
Particle size : 15 to 30 mm and 2 to 8 mm, Water Absorption 18 to 20 % of size. Clay Aggregate has strong chemical resistance against acidic and alkaline substance, which helps to maintain the pH value of 7-9.
CA is round pellet structure produced by firing natural clay at temperature of 1200°C.
The particles formed are rounded in shape and generally range in size from 0-30mm; these are processed to the required grading, depending on the final use.
ECA is an extremely lightweight, strong and thermally insulating material.
Excellent Fire Resistance.
Shape : ECA has a spherical shape resulting from the pelletizing technique used.
This leads to minimal settlement after placing.
Decomposability : ECA has strong chemical resistance against acidic and alkaline
substance, which helps to maintain the pH value of 7-9.
Compressive : ECA has very high compressive strength.
Sound Insulation : ECA has been proved to one of the best sound insulator. An ECA block of width 20cm has capacity of insulating sound up to 45db to 46db respectively.
Environmentally Friendly : ECA generates no pollutants or hazardous wastes.
Excellent Thermal Insulation
Low Coefficient Of Thermal Expansion
Particle size : 15-30mm
Bulk Density 300 to 750 Kg/m3
Cylinder Compressive Strength 0.6 to 3.0 N/mm2
Dry Thermal Conductivity 0.09 to 0.10 W/mK
Surface Alkalinity 7 to 9 pH
Water Absorption 18 to 20 % of size
Gardening : Landscaping, Green Roofs, Flower beds,flower Pots.
Construction : Block, Wall panel, RCC, PCC, Insulation,
Plastering, Flooring, Back fill.
Geotechnical : Road, Railway, Fill For Airport Runway, Land fill, Drainage, Port, Underground Conduits & Pipelines, Dead-end bridges, filling, Water Filtration, Fill Behind Retaining Walls, Fill on levated Structures, Bridge Applications.
