Mechanics

Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) blocks are largely used in building structures exposed to earth pressure. The durability against moisture, frost resistance, low thermal conductivity and high mechanical strength makes Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) blocks a superior product for this challenging application.

Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) is 100% inert but light weight provides comprehensive strength to the building structure. Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) protects the building against natural erosion and calamities. The fine balance of low density and high compressive strength is the primary advantage for Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) wall elements. This unique property makes it possible to manufacture a large array of products that’s meets the needs of multiple element types.

The load bearing capacity of wall made of Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) is excellent, typically 2 to 8 N/mm² (MPa). Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) blocks are used in load and non-load bearing structures in various buildings. Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) blocks with mortars and reinforcement, forms an excellent product that works against horizontal and vertical loads.

Fixing and fastening with Expanded Clay Aggregate (ECA®) masonry units is easier compared to other construction materials available in the market.

Expanded clay block walls are designed according to EN 1996-1-1 (Eurocode 6). Design is based on normalized compressive strength of the blocks while Expanded Clay Panels are to EN 1520 and EN 1992-1-1.
