New heat-insulating materials production based on the nanotechnological approach to unsorted cullet processing

Foam glass is a new material for the Russian market. Foam glass possesses unique thermophysical and operational features, such as wide temperature range of application, vapour and water impermeability, absolute non-flammability, size stability (no shrinkage), high strength, resistance to aggressive media (including acids), rodents and insects.

Area of Application

  • Multi-purpose layer in road dressings, thermal insulation of road structures.
  • Multi-purpose layer in three-layer concrete products for high-rise housing, multi-purpose material for foundations, partitions, floorings in all types of construction and land improvement.
  • Multi-purpose material for foundations, partitions, floorings in all types of low-rise housing and repair.

Main Consumers

  • Road construction.
  • Construction of high-rise residential and non-residential buildings.
  • Private construction sector (DIY).

Competitive Advantages

  • Foam glass improves structural reliability in all fields of application.
  • Foam glass heat insulation has an undeniable advantage for the use in cryogenic technology, fire and explosion hazardous production, critical capital facilities.
  • In addition to common conditions, the material can be applied effectively when other heat-insulating materials are inefficient, difficult, or even impossible to be used.
