Scoria Products

Aerolite's light weight sand and aggregate products are quarried and processed to give to our customers the benefits of the unique properties of the scoria quarried at our Anakie sites in  Victoria, Australia.



Directly and purely from the earth to you

The  unique properties of our light weight scoria sand, aggregates and fines products means that users of concrete, mulching and decorative aggregate products  benefit  in cost, operation and improved final product quality over other aggregate and fines products

Scoria's unique properties:

bullet

Light weight - Aerolite scoria is less than half the weight of equivalent aggregate products (its density is as low as 750 kgs/M3). This means the product is  ideal for the manufacture of lightweight concrete and masonry products. It  is also an efficient noise reducer.

bullet

Vesicular structure- Due to its aerated nature, it has 100 times the surface area of normal aggregates. This leads  to large advantages in water retention as it can be used to drought proof gardens when used as a mulch or soil additive,  is also an ideal growing medium for use in soils, hydroponics mixes, growing and potting mixes. It also is an idea filter material

bullet

Complex chemistry - Contains a range of essential trace elements necessary for plant growth and can be used to supplement chemical or animal fertilizers

bullet

Refractory Properties - Due to its structure and chemical composition it is an ideal refractory or insulator when used either by itself or as the major component in fire resistant concrete or masonry products.
