Lightweight Aggregates

Euromin Ltd are a supplier of the lightweight aggregates Carbon8® and Lytag®. Lightweight aggregates have been available in the UK for over 40 years and are manufactured within the European Union in accordance with EN 13055, the standard for lightweight aggregates.


Carbon8® - is the world's only carbon negative aggregate; more CO2 is permanently captured in the process than is used in its manufacture.
This capture helps with the binding of the materials and importantly chemically stabilises and encapsulates contaminants. The material is then blended and pelletised to form Carbon 8®, a rounded lightweight aggregate that is available in various sizes and gradings and can be used in a number of applications in construction.

BLOCKS: comply with British Standard BS EN 771-3
CONCRETE: tested against BS 12620 in a range of applications
SCREED: can be used in floor screeds including no-fines concrete
AGGREGATE: use in traditional applications bound and unbound

Tested against BS EN 13055, BS EN 1097 and BS EN 1744

Every thousand tonnes of C8Agg produced captures the same amount of carbon as planting 4000 trees every year.

lightweight aggregates

Lytag® - Lightweight aggregate is produced from the Fly Ash waste generated in Coal Fired power stations.

This is then transformed by heating to 1,100°C, creating a very hard pellet with a honeycombed internal structure of interconnecting spaces. These pellets can then be used as a superior, consistent, lightweight aggregate which is up to 50% lighter than natural aggregate.

Available in several sizes and suitable for use in many different applications including precast concrete, structural lightweight concrete, screeds, drainage, green roofs & geotechnical fill.

Supplied loose by rigid or artic lorry loads or in 1 tonne bulk bags.
