Kvarit - A new word in construction

Building materials based on natural volcanic tuff and pumice are widely recognized and used in construction and are very popular in the locations of mineral deposits.

We propose to expand the scope of such materials, using a new environmentally safe, energy-efficient and resource-saving technology for building materials - KVARIT.

Our commitment to environmental protection, resource saving and a circular economy helped create unprecedented technologies.
This technology helps solve the following problems:

  • stop using fossil fuels (gas, oil);
  • Reduce the impact on the environment by reducing greenhouse gas emissions, nitrogen oxides, dust and noise;
  • saving resources (land for agriculture, water, oxygen is not required);
  • cement is not required, and any other additives.

The proposed technology changes the look at the industrial landscape - because of the absence of dust, noise and bulky production, it is easily transformed and transferred.

Products - synthetic pumice, volcanic tuff, is formed by heating slate and argillites of 0.5-20 mm and usually contains 5% silica, 8% spinel, mullite, 3% and 84% roentgenomorphic material.

The project, which is unique in terms of efficient use of resources, energy efficiency - 0.97 GJ / cu. (Brick 1.8-2.2 GJ / cubic meter of concrete blocks of concrete blocks - not less than 3.4 GJ / cubic meter). The technology involves the use of certain types of natural properties of minerals to increase volume, when lava flows through them. The stones are transferred to the surface in the form of pumice and volcanic tuff, formed from water and oxygen. List the swelling up to five times the volume in order to reduce transportation costs, as well as locate the production site as close as possible to consumers.

Samples obtained in our laboratory have the following characteristics: density 370 kg / m3 with a compressive strength of 10.4 kg / cm² and a density of 750 kg / m3 at a compressive strength of 32.4 kg / cm 2, a resistance of 1250 ° C B For 30 minutes, without deformation.

Products, synthetic pumice or tuf, in case of its dismantling can be used in construction as a backfill, thermal insulation material, as well as for reclamation of land in agriculture.

Use in agriculture shows the use of volcanic soil in the vineyards of Lanzarote (Spain).

The raw material for production is a very common clay shale and other minerals (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slate, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Slate_industry).
