At Elastizell, we specialize in providing Low-Density Cellular Concrete (LDCC) for various construction projects in Wisconsin. LDCC is a versatile and efficient material offering numerous geotechnical solutions.

Made from Portland cement, water, and pre-generated cellular concrete foam, LDCC is ideal for projects requiring reduced loads over structures or decreased lateral loads on walls and foundations. This innovative material helps contractors achieve durable and long-lasting results in challenging conditions.

The Advantages of Low-Density Cellular Concrete

Low-density cellular concrete is known for its wide range of densities and compressive strengths, making it suitable for many applications. One of the primary benefits of LDCC is its lightweight nature, which helps reduce the load on underlying structures. This is particularly useful in areas with poor soil conditions or where weight restrictions are a concern. By using LDCC, you can enhance the stability and longevity of your construction projects without compromising on strength or performance.

This cellular concrete can also reduce or even eliminate lateral loads on retaining walls and foundations. This is crucial for maintaining the structural integrity of these elements, especially in projects involving significant earth pressures. The material’s unique properties help distribute loads more evenly, minimizing the risk of structural damage and prolonging the lifespan of your constructions.

Custom Mix Designs for Every Project

Every construction project has unique requirements, and LDCC can be customized to meet these needs. Mix designs are job-specific and tailored to the required performance criteria. This customization includes adjusting the density and compressive strength to achieve the desired results. Our team works closely with clients to understand their project specifications and develop the perfect mix for their needs.

Elastizell uses purpose-built equipment designed specifically for mixing and placing LDCC at the project site. This on-site blending ensures the material is fresh and meets the specifications for optimal performance. By controlling the mixing process, we can guarantee the highest quality and consistency in our LDCC products, ensuring they perform flawlessly in any application.

Applications of Low-Density Cellular Concrete

Due to its versatility and performance, LDCC is ideal for various construction applications. It is commonly used in projects that require load reduction, such as fill over weak soils, lightweight fill for embankments, and load-reducing fill for bridge abutments. Additionally, LDCC is excellent for backfilling around structures where reducing lateral loads is essential. Its adaptability makes it a go-to solution for complex construction challenges.

Another significant application is void filling, where LDCC can fill abandoned pipelines, tunnels, and other underground voids. Its flowable nature allows it to reach difficult areas, providing a complete and reliable fill. This capability ensures that voids are securely filled, preventing future subsidence and maintaining the integrity of surrounding structures.
