Construction Chemicals

Concrete structure is designed with a trowel

The FRILITE® Group differentiates between construction materials (give buildings basic shape and structure) and construction chemicals (used for connection, protection, sealing, etc.). As construction chemical products are mainly used in thin layers focusing on shape, mechanical strength and weight saving, the finest grades of FRILITE® hollow microspheres are the best choice. Already a relatively low mass fraction in a formulation can make a huge difference. The FRILITE® Group, as one of the few suppliers of hollow mineral microspheres, offers different types and grades (e.g. d10 and d90 values) to formulators in order to meet all standard requirements. The microspheres can also be produced with Topcut.

Construction Materials

Construction materials are one of the largest and most important areas of application for the FRILITE® P-Series. Conventionally expanded perlite has been used in construction materials for many years because of weight reduction or insulation purposes. However, conventionally expanded perlite never became widely accepted in construction materials due to the sensitivity of the material to mechanical stress in the mixing and applying processes and because of its undesirable absorbency. The FRILITE® P-Series, however, offers all these needed characteristics and more thanks to their glazed, closed-cell surface.
