Foamit foam glass aggregates are ideally suited for applications in housebuilding in a wide variety of structures. Foamit as a bulk fill material is one of the lightest on the market. Benefits of this low density include the ease of compaction of the material and transport efficiency.
Foam glass’s cell structure gives the product uniquely low thermal conductivity (dry about 0.1 W / mK), making it an excellent insulator. Foamit’s easy compaction and angle of friction ensure a stable substructure on site. Foamit is non-combustible and has low capillarity, meaning it can be effective as a moisture- barrier.
Foamit is made up of 99% purified recycled glass. Thanks to the nature of the manufacturing process of Foamit foam glass, there is no organic matter contained in the finished products.

Compaction factor is 10-25% of stored weight and compaction equipment, depending on the application, is required. For housebuilding construction a compacting plate (70-200kg) is recommended
