    Premium Lightweight Products for Sustainable Construction

     
     LIGHTWEIGHT AGGREGATES AND FILLERS

    Expanded Glass Technologies supplies ECOLITE expanded glass granules to building product manufacturers across Asia-Pacific. ECOLITE is a non-flammable light weight aggregate possessing excellent thermal and acoustic properties. Since 1995, our Expanded Glass Granules have been used throughout Europe in lightweight building materials and industrial products. ECOLITE is made from recycled post-consumer glass, making ECOLITE an excellent solution for any organisation striving to develop sustainable building products. 

    premium expanded glass granules are available in 6 gradings from 0.1 to 8mm

    FEATURES AND BENEFITS
    HIGH STRENGTH

    The high Strength to Density Ratio of ECOLITE enables the development of new and innovative sustainable products

    NON FLAMMABLE

    ECOLITE is non flammable, enabling fire resistant panels to be made with lower weights and higher compressive and flexural strengths

    SOUND ABSORBING

    ECOLITE's homogeneous internal porosity enables acoustic tiles and panels to be made with superior acoustic performance 

    VOC FREE

    Unlike Quartz Sand and Perlite, Ecolite does not contain crystalline silica. It is VOC*-free and does not harbor pests and mould growth

    * volatile organic compounds

    SUSTAINABLE 

    ECOLITE is manufactured using sustainably sourced recycled glass, protecting our natural resources and reducing landfill waste

    * Data sourced from publicly available material

    * Competitor data sourced from website and represents water absorbed in 5 mins

       Ecolite data sourced from Eindhoven Technical University Study 2012 and represents water absorbed in 60 mins

    EXPANDED GLASS GRANULATE - ACOUSTIC PANELS

    Reapor®

    Reapor acoustic panels, made from Expanded Glass Granulate, are high performance noise absorbers that exhibit exceptional acoustic performance for their thickness.

    Using patented technology, expanded glass granules are bonded together in a high temperature sintering process to create Reapor panels. This process enables panels to be produced without any chemical binders thereby creating a noncombustible panel which is free of VOC's and fibers. So now noise control options are possible in areas previously difficult to address due to limitations of fir and other health and environmental considerations.

    Panels can be cut, drilled and routed using standard woodworking tools and installation using our recommended adhesive is easy and straightforward.

    SUSTAINABILITY NEWS
    Polystyrene Litter Pervades Yarra River

    Polystyrene, especially expanded polystyrene (EPS) has been identified as the most prevalent and pervasive litter item in the Yarra River, according to a 2020 report by YRKA. The report was funded by the Victorian Government with support from the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning, Parks Victoria and Melbourne Water. Since April 2018, approx 38,000 kg of polystyrene contaminated soil and general waste have been removed from the Yarra's riverbanks and reedbeds.

    In addition to physical EPS material, styrenes, the building blocks of the polymer, are found in marine and freshwaters and sediments globally (Kwon et al., 2015, 2017). Because polystyrene plastic is thought to be one of the only sources of styrenes in the environment, the styrene contamination is likely a result of polystyrene weathering and leaching in marine and freshwater systems (Kwon et al., 2017). Furthermore, in some parts of the world EPS has been cited as a source of other chemicals to the environment (Rani et al., 2015; Jang et al., 2017).
