Perfect for the quantity surveyor who needs to tick all the boxes whilst meeting fiscal constraints of their project and the contractor who requires a lightweight handleable solution which will allow them to lay blocks quicker and complete projects earlier. This product is sold low carbon as standard - up to an 50% carbon reduction compared with using OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement).Technical Specs Get in touch
Environmentally, Laylite ticks all the boxes and with its core ingredient complying with BS EN – 13055-1. Laylite is inert, light weight, non- combustible, rot-proof and structurally strong. The use of Argex product in the finished block ensures that the efficiency of raw material use is maximised to the full making Laylite a greatly enhanced sustainable solution on which to build the future.
Laylite has the added benefit of a finished surface texture that is suitable for the application of appropriate Paints normally denoted a ‘Paint Grade Finish’ but it should be noted that blocks should be allowed to dry with all dirt, dust and efflorescence being removed before the application of any final finish.
CCP recommend that due to natural variations in aggregates projects should source material from the same CCP site so as to ensure so far as is reasonably practicable the continuity of the textural finish and hue.

Extolling Lambda values of 0.25 W/mK for the 100mm and 0.1785 W/mK for the 140mm Laylite is available in three compressive strengths of 4.2 N/mm2, 7.3 N/mm2 and 10.4 N/mm2 (the latter two on request) and with overall weights of approximately 10kg and 14 kg for the 100mm and 140mm respectively. Laylite it is a viable alternative to the air-crete block product with the added advantage of offering a much broader compressive strength range.
