Strainers and backfilling
Strainers and backfilling Kerwood®
Kerwood® foamed ceramics is widely used in various dry strainers and backfilling for leveling floors, thermal insulation and solving some other tasks. Kerwood® goods are chosen for these purposes not only because of the technical characteristics, but also for reasons of economic benefit.
Possible fields of application
Kerwood® lightweight filler is successfully used for leveling and adjusting the height of floors, as a loose thermal insulation layer for floors or ceilings (including vaulted or trapezoidal ceilings). It is allowed to use in situations with a large surface pressure assumed. Kerwood® granules can also be used to protect pipes and cable ducts, when installing thermal accumulators, to insulate the exterior of the building, as a drainage strainer.
Advantages of Kerwood® foamed ceramic granules
Due to the following properties, Kerwood® foamed ceramics is the best choice for strainers, backfilling and other dry fillers.
- Mechanical strength
Granules have excellent resistance to pressure, which is extremely important for use in filling the floors. Kerwood® foamed ceramics impart the necessary rigidity to the surface.
- Low thermal conductivity
The porous structure of the filler allows to effectively resist both heat losses from the room and, on the contrary, its excessive heating.
- High flowability
The shape of the granules and their small size is a pledge that the filler will be distributed evenly, will occupy all the cavities and will achieve a perfectly flat surface.
- Moisture resistance
Due to an intact shell, Kerwood® granules perfectly withstand moisture.
The filler does not burn and does not emit harmful substances at high temperatures.
In the Kerwood® filler pests, microorganisms and mold do not multiply. It is also resistant to rodents.
In addition, the use of Kerwood® filler also has direct economic benefits arising from the technical qualities of the granules.
Using Kerwood® granules is profitable
Kerwood® foamed ceramic microspheres can save money for the following reasons:
- Light weight
The necessary volume of filler will be lighter than other materials, reducing transportation costs.
- Reduction of man-hours at work
Work with the Kerwood® filler is convenient, and all operations will take much less time.
The foamed ceramic filler does not settle and retains all its qualities for many years.
- Keeping the heat
Energy savings for heating the room will be significant, since the heat-insulating qualities of the porous microspheres are extremely high.
It is also important to note a wide range of applications of the material.
