leca ( light expanded clay aggregate )
common uses are in concrete blocks, concrete slabs, geotechnical fillings, lightweight concrete, water treatment, hydroponics, aquaponics and hydroculture.
leca can be eaily used for plant-growing substrate.
leca is a versatile material and is utilized in an increasing number of applications. In the construction industry, it is used extensively in the production of lightweight concrete, blocks and precast or incast structural elements (panels, partitions, bricks and light tiles). Leca used in structural backfill against foundations, retaining walls, bridge abutments etc. , in addition, it can reduce earth pressure by 75% compared with conventional materials, and also increases ground stability while reducing settlement and land deformation. Leca can drain the surface water and groundwater to control groundwater pressure. Leca grout can be used for flooring (finishing) and roofing with thermal and sound insulation.
leca is also used in water treatment facilities for the filtration and purification of municipal wastewater and drinking water as well as in other filtering processes, including those for dealing with industrial wastewater and fish farms.
leca has uses in agriculture and landscapes. It can alter soil mechanics. It is used as a growing medium in hydroponics systems since blended with other growing mediums such as soil and peat, it can improve drainage, retain water during periods of drought, insulate roots during frost, and provide roots with increased oxygen levels promoting very vigorous growth. Leca can be mixed with heavy soil to improve its aeration and drainage.
