Isn't it true that each construction project is different from the others? For this reason, not all concretes are the same, they must be adapted to the specific needs of each work, and that difference - or added value - is one of Promsa's objectives. Today I would like to tell you about one of these “different” concretes, the Prolight Celular, the most modern and high-performance on the market. In fact, it is part of our PROMSA TECH product range, one of the most technological and advanced of PROMSA.
The Prolight Cellular is composed of a mixture of cement, water, fine aggregate and foaming additives that give it great lightness, even more than lightweight concrete. For this reason, it allows to reduce structural loads in works and its main function is to fill, being very suitable for flat roofs, roofs with slopes and various fillings.
Its main innovation is its homogeneity and the way of applying it, since instead of a manual system it is applied by pumping. The Prolight Cellular arrives in a concrete mixer truck to the construction site, where it is pumped efficiently and quickly. This process also allows to save waste on site, such as bags of cement and pallets, and reduce the generation of dust and water consumption, thus improving sustainability. In this way, the yields are very high and suitable for all types of surfaces. And for the prevention of occupational hazards it is also an advantage, since the manipulation of bags of cement and the use of the compressor on the construction site are eliminated.
In addition, Prolight Cellular is more resistant and with thermal and acoustic improvements, compared to standard concrete, thanks to its foamed and homogeneous texture. It has been shown to have a type A1 reaction to fire, which means that it is not combustible and has good fire performance.
An example of the application of this aerated concrete was the paving work of the Estación del Nord in Barcelona, which we carried out in February 2018, and specifically for the over-parking area. -> https://www.promsa.com/ca/obras#obra63
