Cement Aggregate’s Green Possibilities

Cement aggregates green possibilities PRATLEY

Pratliperl, an eco-friendly cement aggregate with exceptional insulating and fireproofing properties, can be applied in many different ways.

Pratliperl is a lightweight, thermally insulating and fireproof cement aggregate that’s produced by Pratley. In the previous edition of WALLS & ROOFS (see page 35), the Pratliperl’s sustainability was unpacked, illustrating why this eco-friendly product is ideal for producing lightweight, fireproof and thermally insulating plasters and concrete.

Remarkably, when mixed with ordinary cement, just two 16mm layers of Pratliperl plastered onto the interior and exterior surfaces of a wall, provides the same thermal insulation as a 220mm thick brick wall. In its loose state, Pratliperl has a conductivity (K) value of 0,05W/mK, which the Pratley claims is 20 times more insulating than ordinary plaster sand.

According to Pratley, Pratliperl’s incredible thermal insulation and exceptional fireproofing properties, together with its ease of use, make it simple for architects to comply with strict building regulations.
