Khodiyar Infratech concrete is cast in densities form 20 to 120 pcf for insulation, semi-structural, and geotechnical applications. Khodiyar Infratech concrete is produced by adding Khodiyar Infratech expansion material to a properly designed cementitious mixture.
Khodiyar Infratech floor fills are cast over wood subfloors and precast concrete. They provide sound conditioning and improved fire resistance for new construction and are excellent for floor leveling in building renovation.
Khodiyar Infratech roof decks are cast over galvanized steel decking (corrugated or fluted), precast or cast-in-place concrete, and wood. They provide positive drainage, thermal insulation, fire-resistance, seismic values, and a solid base for the built-up or single-ply roofing membranes applied over the deck for waterproofing.
Khodiyar Infratech is cast in-situ as an alternative to a standard geotechnical application. Khodiyar Infratech EF is a low-density (load-reducing) fill for applications such as behind retaining walls, at bridge approaches, over culverts and under roadways, and over poor soils, to name just a few.
Limitations: Khodiyar Infratech is applied according to manufacturer's or applicator's recommendations for floor, roof, and geotechnical fill installations. Other uses should be carefully analyzed before application to insure that the material satisfies the intended requirements.
The specific mix designs may be customized for cast densities ranging from 20 pcf to 120 pcf.
The discrete cell structure of Khodiyar Infratech results in lower water absorption than concretes with interconnecting cells or concretes made with expanded aggregates. Khodiyar Infratech concrete requires only about one-fourth the mix water of expanded aggregate concretes. Its water/cement ratio is similar to that of standard concrete.
ACI formulas for lightweight concretes apply for all ranges of Khodiyar Infratech Concrete with appropriate substitution for compressive strength (f’c) and density (w).
Khodiyar Infratech may be customized through mix designs to include fly ash, lightweight aggregates, fibers and other additives for specialized performance of the standard mixes.
Khodiyar Infratech is generally site batched, mixed and pumped into place. The cast density is checked periodically. Specific application requirements are outlined in floor fill, roof deck, and geotechnical fill literature.
