EchoStone Concrete is a variant of concrete called Cellular Lightweight Concrete (CLC). CLC was invented in Sweden in 1904 and is created by “blowing” pressurized air (bubbles) into concrete as it mixes. Those air bubbles allow CLC to retain traditional concrete’s strength characteristics and functional properties while offering certain advantages as measured against traditional concrete. EchoStone CLC is high-quality concrete researched, mixed, and designed with state-of-the-art processes and technology.
The use of polypropylene fillers will (mostly) eliminate iron rebar in EchoStone house walls, further shortening construction times and reducing storing, warehousing, and logistical challenges. Additional and significant CO2 savings will be achieved by the use of polypropylene fillers instead of iron rebar in EchoStone houses.
