Light weight Aerolite aggregate  has many other advantages due to its light weight and vesicular nature:
             High volume yield and hence low cost especially when transport costs are considered
             Sstrong and extremely durable
             Easily spread with little or no dust generation
             High moisture rentention
             Excellent as a filter material

 

 Typical PARTICLE DENSITY AND WATER ABSORPTION – 14mm Aerolite Aggregate  (as per AS 141.5)

  AEROLITE LIGHTWEIGHT AGGREGATE              
Basaltic, or heavyweight aggregate has a specific gravity of 2.7–2.9 and a density of approximately 2610 kgs per cubic meter. 

Aerolite’s  aggregate is less than half this density and when used in place of heavier stone OFTEN MEANS THAT ONLY HALF THE TONNAGE NEEDS TO BE PURCHASED FOR THE SAME VOLUME YIELD
