Porous light-weight concrete

Porous light-weight concrete is a type of light-weight concrete characterised by the cavities between the aggregates. For the production of porous light-weight concrete, aggregates are used which mainly comprise grains of an equal size.

This means that they merely touch each other, and air cavities develop which are not filled with concrete. These give the concrete a rougher overall surface.
