Abstract

The production of lightweight masonry block is in most countries a highly mechanised industry based on great automation and accuracy. This production has to match strict standards that describe properties specified for the products. These may include denotations on sizes, strength, weather resistance, insulating properties and fire resistance. Volcanic slag can be used as aggregates in lightweight concrete that meets all these requirements.
