Pervious Cellular Concrete Applications

The production of pervious lightweight cellular concrete is a patented process (US 8,172,937 B2) using AQUAERiX , an advanced synthetic foaming agent that utilizes and open-cell technology. The bubbles coalesce allowing water to pass through. Pervious lightweight cellular concrete provides proven solutions for applications in the construction and mining industry where drainage is important. AQUAERiX pervious cellular concrete is environmentally safe, has no flash point, and supports sustainable development, possibly increasing the number of points awarded to a building under the LEED system. Testing by Middle Tennessee State University documents the ability of AQUAERiX pervious cellular concrete to protect the environment by filtering contaminants that can adversely effect soil and water.
