RE: Heat Resistant Concrete

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
It depends on what you mean by "heat resistant".  Are you trying to use concrete to insulate from environmental temperatures, fire temperatures, industrial heat, etc.?   And the next question is the function.  Is it for a structural horizontal element, wall, or floor? 
As pointed out, there is refractory concrete.  There is also cellular concrete like Elastizell, and there are composite concretes which can take the form of architectural sandwich panels or structural sandwich systems.

Beside, light weight concrete, is there any other easy way to make concrete heat resistant?

Thank you,
