Usage of Mega Light Weight Concrete at IIT Madras

Date: 15 Sep, 2017

Don’t want to increase the dead load on the structure? 

Do we want consistent quality concrete? 

Should the project be completed in a short span?

The solution provided to a foremost institution for the above-mentioned pain points.

Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IIT), decided to build their new chemistry block comprising of four floors. The building consisted inverted beams each of those was a foot in thickness and placed on top of a slab. IIT Madras team required the area around the beam to be filled without adding much dead load to the structure while ensuring that filling material has better cohesion and low water absorption. To attain the desired results the density of the product was maintained at 1500 kg per cum. The project had to be completed in a short period of 10 days while ensuring consistent quality of the product. Nuvoco presented the perfect solution for the client’s needs with Mega Light Weight Concrete (LWC)

Mega Light Weight Concrete from Nuvoco offers a density of 600-1800kg/mwhile reducing the structural weight and is an efficient alternative to brickbat coba. It is a low density and thermal efficient concrete which has good permeability. As compared to brickbat coba this has a quick turnaround time and consistent quality.
