The GBH resalcon

It is a kind of cement-aggregate – the usage of this additive enables that dry materials with different density (cement and polystyrene) with theadding of water, can be compounded to a homogenous consistency that is to say water doesn’t leak out from the ready mortar during the compounding procedure and after it and the polystyrene stays inside. The whole material dries in a way that the different component parts stay compounded. This creates a lightweight concrete with unique properties especially in insulating.

By the usage of this method heating costs are decreased by 30 to 90 percent, therefore climate control can be substantially decreased or even stopped. The efficiency of heat insulating depends on the thickness of the layer; by the augmentation of the thickness of the layer or rather by the decreasing of the density of the material (100-300 kg/m³) – the heat transmission factor (U factor [before it was called as K factor]) will be lower. The heat conductivity factor (λ) at a density of 300 kg/m³ will be 0,082 W/mK, at a density of 230 kg /m³ will be 0,069 W /mK, and at last at a density of 150 kg /m³ will be 0,056 W /mK. We can use it anywhere - the heat insulating and steam handling properties are much better than at any material that have been known before.

  1. It can be used multifunctionally: it can be flushed or greased, can be made in different shapes like a brick or a panel or any other particular figure. You can even use it inside or outside environment, at the insulation of the slab

  2. Fireproof: It is NOT COMBUSTIBLE. With a pointing flame of 1200 Celsius degree a 6 cm thick gBh resalcon light concrete can be burnt through in 50 minutes. Therefore buildings which are made of or later insulated with this material can survive bushfires which lasts usually between 15 to 30 minutes – and can protect all that is inside

  3. Watertight: Can be an advantage at metro constructions, but also useful for the post-insulation of cellars.

  4. Breathable: It detains the closeness of the wall.

  5. Consistent: According to other heat insulating materials it has a big compressive strength (at 300 kg/m³ it is 1,4 N/mm²) At the insulation of the slab it is much more effective than the polystyrene panel.

  6. Flexible: The resiliency of the material can allow even to high buildings the possibility to resist to strong winds

  7. It is light: It is afloat

  8. Soundproof: It contains polystyrene at a high density (1 m3/1 m3) so it is able to use as a soundproof material

  9. Cheap: As the gBh resalcon uses a recycling technology it has a great advantage comparing with other technologies – EU has prominent programs to environment protection so the recycling technologies always gain benefit

Can be used for:

  1. Tower buildings

  2. Private houses

  3. Blocks of flats

  4. Light structured buildings

  5. Log houses

  6. Living or office containers

  7. Industrial buildings (factories, halls, depots)

  8. Layer moulding made concrete floors

  9. Substructure, superstructure (metro, bridge)

  10. Pipelines of heat, air, oil, and water

  11. Mansards (it has a better insulation than a brick-wall even without the use of heat mirror foil also at summer heat and at winter cold)

  12. Post insulating of wet promises (bathroom, sauna, laundry, cellar)

Also for the construction of

  1. light structured buildings

  2. passive houses

  3. log houses

  4. living or office containers

  5. additional floors for older buildings

  6. industrial buildings (factories, halls, depots)

where irrespectively of the skeleton it can be pumped to the network of shuttering as a filling out wall.

The GBH resalcon is particularly the most modern heat insulating material because of the properties listed above.
