Our Areas of Expertise
Asphalt bituminous surface treatment is safer, more economical and longer lasting than conventional aggregates.
Internal Curing uses prewetted expanded shale, clay, or slate lightweight aggregate in a way to supply water throughout the concrete mixture.
Stone veneer allows for an aesthetically pleasing alternative to natural stone at a fraction of the expense.
LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURAL CONCRETE
Structural lightweight made with Buildex solves weight and durability problems in buildings and exposed structures.
LIGHTWEIGHT GEOTECHNICAL FILL
Lightweight aggregate fills solve numerous geotechnical engineering problems and convert unstable soft soil into vibrant usable land.
GREEN ROOFS & HORTICULTURE
Horticulture, green roof and landscape design offer a soil medium that is non-toxic, odorless, inert, and will not react with many chemicals.
Whether it's creating planting media for a rooftop garden or designing soil for an athletic field, expanded shale, clay, and slate is the logical solution.
STORM WATER MANAGEMENT & WATER TREATMENT
Buildex Haydite® can be used to construct applications that treat and reduce the amount of storm water runoff.
Concrete masonry increases thermal performance, which extends a significant cost reduction over the life of the structure.
Manufactured at with high thermo-structural resistance, Buildex Haydite® is ideal for consumer products repeatedly exposed to fires.
