Lytag®'s qualities make it ideal for arrestor beds, filter systems, roof tiles, sports surfaces and more.
Lytag® does not compact over time, so runaway vehicles will always sink into the bed allowing drag forces to stop them safely and with minimal damage. Lytag® is ideal for roadside, airport runway, race circuit and dockside arrestor beds.
Lytag® is a suitable material for bedding pipes with drainage systems as required by specifications such as EN 1610. Providing a rounded, lightweight backfill material in particular for geocellular systems that may be affected by large, angular aggregate in excavated material or, heavy, poor draining soils that will have their soakaway characteristics improved.
Lytag® has excellent thermal insulation properties and is a Class 1 fire resistant aggregate.
Biological Filter Systems
Lytag® is an ideal material for use in biological filter systems where a bacterial film has to anchor and develop.
A Growing Medium
Lytag® can rapidly absorb up to 30% of its own weight when immersed in water which is then released over time providing a controlled environment.
Sports Surfaces and Play Areas
When incorporated into proprietary designed systems, Lytag® remains solid enough for running on, but soft enough to minimise injury or impact on falling.
