Road Construction

CEMATRIX Cellular concrete:

  • provides cost-effective solutions.
  • accelerates construction schedules.
  • reduces onsite work force requirements.
  • frost protects the areas under the roadway; thus preventing frost-heave road damage and reduces yearly maintenance requirements.
  • is a monolithic material, which can be used as a 3:1 replacement for pit run gravel in a road base structure; (200 mm cellular concrete has equal road bed support to a 600 mm thickness of pit run gravel.).
  • usually allows less excavation of the road bed, to achieve a proper road structure; because cellular concrete will provide high strength and insulation in one layer.
  • may be used to prevent permafrost melting, as well as slowing the effects of ongoing deterioration over areas of discontinuous permafrost.
