Foamglass Blocks

Completely inorganic and 100% closed cell, foamglass provides a unique combination of physical properties. This highly resilient building material withstands the most demanding conditions to be found in construction today.
Foamglass insulation is manufactured from minimum 60% locally sourced recycled glass, including scrap vehicle glass and off-cuts from the window industry. Raw materials are mineral based and abundant natural resource.
Features and Benefits
Foamglass consists of pure glass, it has a truly hermetically sealed, closed cell, glass structure. It is watertight.                                                                                              Advantage: The close cell structure prevents water absorption, penetration or tracking by capillary action.
2. Vermin proof
Foamglass cannot rot, it is inorganic, its vermin-proof, and can’t support plant growth.
Advantage:  It’s the ideal choice for situations where insulation is behind a facade or in contact with the ground.
3. Compressive loads
Foamglass supports high compressive loads without deflection or movement.
Advantage:  It is the ideal insulation material for load bearing areas, such as, foundations, floors, walkways, terraces, podium roofs, balconies, vehicle parking.
4. Fire and fumes
Foamglass consists of pure glass, it’s non-toxic and non-combustible.
Advantage:  It does not combust, support fire, produce fumes, or present a fire risk in the building structure. Fire behavior: Classification according to EN 13501: A1, non-combustible; classification according to ASTM E 84, smoke development and flame spread – zero.
5. Vapour control
Foamglass consists of pure glass, it has a truly hermetically sealed, closed cell, glass structure. It is gas and vapour tight.
Advantage: Foamglass is vapour tight, providing both an insulation and high performance vapour barrier in one material.
6. Dimensionally stable
Foamglass has a low coefficient of thermal movement, in the same range as concrete and steel.
Advantage: It can be adhesive bonded onto the structure, no mechanical fixings, therefore no thermal bridging.
7. Acid and chemical resistant
Foamglass consists of pure glass, it is resistant to organic solvents and acids.
Advantage: It can withstand aggressive mediums and demanding environments.
8. Easy to cut
Foamglass consists of pure glass.
Advantage: It is non-toxic, non-hazardous, it does not contaminate the water table; and is easily cut using hand tools.
9. Ecological

Foamglass is manufactured using minimum 60% recycled glass. It has a GWP < 1,5 and ODP = 0. It is free of environmentally damaging flame retardants and gas propellants.                                                                                                                             Advantage: Foamglass can be recycled or used in landscaping.
