About Porous Concrete
Porous concrete, also known as water-permeable concrete is used in a variety of buildings and is attracting attention as it solves many modern day environmental problems; such as water permeability (drainage), water retention, sound absorption (high sound deadening quality), heat island prevention/sudden heavy rain/noise control measures.
In addition, E-CRETE in collaboration with Mie University has developed multilayered porous concrete with high standard design capabilities.
Four Main Properties of Porous Concrete
Basic Structure of Multi-layer Porous Concrete
The surface layer of multi-layer porous concrete is made up of natural gravel and a resin binder (transparent). Because the surface layer can unconventionally be made-to-order, it can be designed to suit a variety of applications and purposes. Various problems of concrete structures can be improved and resolved by using porous concrete in construction. For further consultation please contact ECRETE.
