We want to introduce to you yet another amazing sustainable building material Expanded Clay Aggregates – ECA ® manufactured in India, which is going to take the world by storm.

Expanded Clay Aggregates – ECA ® is the revolutionary green aggregate that has a wide application in Water Treatment, Air & Water Filtration Industry.

Expanded Clay Aggregates – ECA ® are round pellet structure produced by firing natural clay at a temperature of 1200°C. The result is a hard, honeycombed structure of interconnecting voids within the aggregate. The particles formed are round in shape. Expanded Clay Aggregates – ECA ® is up to 6 times lighter than traditional aggregates. Expanded Clay Aggregates – ECA ® is a preferred material as a replacement to traditional fine and coarse aggregate not only due to its excellent very many characteristics but also due to its ability to reduce earth pressure up to 75% compared to conventional materials in the market. The main characteristics of Expanded Clay Aggregates – ECA ® are low density combined with high strength. It is available in sizes of 0-30 mm in Rounds and Crushed forms with a density ranging from 260-840 kg/m3.
