Introduction

Structural Lightweight Concrete

Norlite is proud to have been serving the block making industry for over 50 years. Rotary kiln lightweight concrete masonry units are providing many economic benefits for the modern block producing industry. These low density load bearing and non-load bearing units conserve costly energy which is a prime concern to architects and owners. Since thermal resistance varies inversely with the density, lightweight concrete masonry units have substantially better thermal insulation properties than normal weight concrete block as the U factor tables verify. Norlite is a chemically inert manufactured lightweight aggregate which causes no staining, popouts, disintegration or adverse reaction to metal or steel in construction.
