A sustainable all-rounder
With a guaranteed anti-aging factor
GEOMATERIALS Foam Glass | Expanded Glass
The ecological alternative to petroleum-based insulating materials
SCHLÜSSELBAUER Geomaterials GmbH stands for environmental compatibility and sustainability.
GEOMATERIALS products (foam glass - expanded glass) are high-quality products made from recycled waste glass.
Choosing the right insulating material is of great importance when planning new buildings and the renovation of old buildings. GEOMATERIALS products meet all the requirements for sustainable, lightweight and highly resilient thermal insulation.
GEOMATERIALS Foam Glass - the optimal load-bearing insulation under the floor slab!
GEOMATERIALS Expanded Glass - the mineral alternative to conventional EPS fill under the screed!
GEOMATERIALS Foam Glass
The principle of sustainability
A highly thermally insulating, load-bearing bulk material made from 100% waste glass.
As a load-bearing, heat-insulating lightweight fill under the foundation slab, glass foam combines a variety of properties that no other insulating material can combine.
- High Thermal Insulation
- Load Bearing
the load-capacity can be controlled by the compression ratio
prevents moisture from rising and percolates water
- Permanently Stable
resistant against aging, rotting, fire, bacteria, frost, acids, bases,
moisture and rodents
- Environmentally friendly
made from 100% recycled glass, energy efficient in
manufacturing, harm- less to soil, inert and pH neutral
- Saving Time and Money
due to efficiency and speed of installation
no consumption of raw materials as it is made from
The principle of lightness
GEOMATERIALS Expanded Glass is formed of lightweight beads to banish cold, damp, and noise. This is a building material that is light as a feather, moisture-resistant, dimensionally stable, and resistant to aging. Moreover, it is ideal as a loose or bound thermally insulating fill. As a lightweight insulating and leveling fill, this building material meets the highest quality requirements and can be used in a wide variety of applications – be it for joist ceilings, cavities and gaps, or floors.
- High thermal insulation
Air is a great insulator. The vast number of closed cavities therefore provide great
thermal insulation – even when bound in small structural thicknesses.
- Easy to work with
Simply pour and distribute. No compression required.
- Resilient and dimensionally stable
No shrinkage, swelling, or long-term settlement: Dimensionally stable up to 750°C.
- Lightweight and pressure-resistant
Owing to its cell geometry, it is highly pressure-resistant and light as a feather.
Ideal as a leveling fill in intermediate ceilings. Increases the acoustic effectiveness of
Dries out quickly and does not provide a breeding ground for mold.
To bacteria, frost, aging, rotting, moisture, acid, insects and rodents.
Being made from recycled glass, it is non-toxic, fiber-free, solvent-free, odorless,
anti-allergenic and radiologically safe.
- Non-combustible class A1, and does not produce harmful gases in a fire.
- Can be walked on shortly after installation
Made from recycled material, so no raw materials consumed
The principle of carrying capacity
GEOMATERIALS Red can absorb high dynamic and cyclical loads. Because of the fact that GEOMATERIALS Red is lightweight, it contributes
to the simple design of the composition layers of road construction. Hence, settlement can be significantly reduced on roads with poor quality soil.
- EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT
approximately 200 kg/m³ in dry conditions SAVES TIME AND MONEY through significantly less and a shorter working process in installation
- DYNAMICALLY, CYCLICALLY DURABLE
GEOMATERIALS Red is the first synthetically manufactured lightweight bulk material which withstands extreme cyclical loads.
- INTELLIGENT BUOYANCY PROPERTIES
as the hydrological conditions change, GEOMATERIALS Red has the ability to store water in its grain structure and also in its core, thus reducing the likelihood of the road becoming buoyant. As the water level declines, GEOMATERIALS Red releases the stored water extremely quickly.
- PERMANENTLY STABLE
resistant to aging, rotting, fire, bacteria, frost, acids, moisture and rodents.
- ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
healthily compatible and harmless to soil and no negative influence to animal or wildlife. Also very energy efficient in production.
