Pratliperl is an eco-friendly cement aggregate with exceptional insulating and fireproofing properties.
So light that it even floats on water, Pratliperl is an ultra-lightweight, thermally insulating and fireproof cement aggregate. Its low weight allows the product to be used as a screed for concrete or corrugated roofs. As a result, Pratliperl can significantly reduce high rise structural building costs due to lighter floor levels requiring less structural support.
Pratliperl practical concrete densities range from 300kg/m³ to 800kg/m³ depending on the mix ratios.
When mixed with ordinary cement, just two 16mm layers of Pratliperl plastered onto the interior and exterior surfaces of a wall, provide 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.
Pre-treated Pratilperl is ideal for mixing with cement and other binders to produce insulating plasters and concrete for energy efficient buildings.
A modern-day solution
Pratliperl is a modern solution for sustainable building and is often specified and used by architects and contractors respectively when designing and constructing lightweight floors, thermally insulated roof decks and fire seals or barrier walls.
According to Pratley, Pratliperl’s lightness, incredible thermal insulation and exceptional fireproofing properties, together with its ease of use, make it simple for architects to comply with strict building regulations.
