Perlite Insulating Concrete Roofdecks

Perlite insulating concrete is light in weight, ranging from about 20-40 lb/ft3 (320-640 kg/m3) depending on the desired density and insulating value. Because of its lightweight, there can be economies in the design of the structure. Typical density is 27 lb/ft3 (432 kg/m3). For mix design information consult

Perlite Use: Lightweight Insulating Concrete Aggregate

Perlite Insulating Concrete for Roof Decks. Typical rigid insulation systems are complex and difficult to install and can lose up to 30% of their published insulation values due to product shrinkage, thermal drift, and thermal bridging over steel deck through mechanical fasteners. There are no such issues with perlite concrete roof decks.
