The advantages of Xtreme Lightweight to both architects and precasters are numerous. Now architects can design with less support considerations due to the reduced weight advantage. Size and strength requirements of concrete footings and steel infrastructure are reduced. Plus the reduced weight permits cantilevering at greater distances.
For precasters, the bottom-line benefits speak for themselves. Thinner yet stronger products can now be produced, achieving a higher yield. Xtreme Lightweight can be installed by carpenters instead of masons. Easier and faster to install than wood or concrete, product savings are immediately realized in terms of shortened project times and lower financing costs.
