Concrete made lightweight

In terms of its properties, aesthetics and haptic qualities, concrete is unique, underscoring modern architecture with a dignified restraint and being used with increasing frequency in contemporary as well as timeless interior design, such is the appeal of its characteristic features.

By exploiting the special tactile qualities and incorporating LightBeton® components that have been used successfully many times before, we are able to make an extraordinary interior design in concrete possible: whether in retail store design or exhibition stand construction, for shop systems or in the restaurant sector, whether in public buildings or in private dwellings. The multiple award-winning concrete composite material with real concrete surface opens up new possibilities for unconventional design and inspiring living spaces. It is reliable and is subject to continuous quality control.

Outside concrete, inside light

Shrinkage cavities, colour hues, fine fissures – features typical of concrete – are the hallmarks that set our LightBeton® apart. Once processed, it is undistinguishable from solid concrete. The look and touch are the same as “real” concrete. Quality that you can see and feel in every last detail is what makes this product truly exceptional. Concrete as a light-weight for a wide range of interior design applications.

Easy to process

Cement and mineral fibres, cured to form hard limestone, carry the outer concrete layer. With some basic knowledge, the material is easy to process. Contact our sales department to get detailed processing guidelines. You’ll become a LightBeton® pro in no time!

Tools
LightBeton® can be processed with all the standard carbide tools used in the woodworking industry. To cut the material saw blades with alternating teeth are preferably used. For optimum cutting and milling results as well as a longer tool life, the cutting speed and feed rate should be matched accordingly.

Edging
The standard panels can be efficiently edged using edge-banding machinery, similar to veneered panels. 1 mm LightBeton® and ABS edges are available as standard.

Milling, bevelling and rounding
The panels that are provided with a 1.5 mm homogeneous concrete covering layer on both sides are easy to machine, e.g. for milling/shaping, bevelling and producing roundings.

Sealing
All LightBeton® standard panels are sealed at the factory with a water-based two-component acrylic sealant. Vertical applications for walls and the furniture sector are thus protected against soiling. Horizontal applications for shelves, tables and other uses subject to heavier wear and stress should be completely sealed again (including the edges) after processing/machining.

Flexline
LightBeton® on a flexible carrier for direct placement and bonding in 4 mm overall thickness. For temporary applications set in place with the self-adhesive mesh or glued firmly in place with an MS polymer adhesive.

Placement  |  Bonding  |  Cross joint

Bonding & LightBeton®Pur 1.5 mm
For further application we offer a 1.5 mm pure concrete sheet for direct bonding. Two slave boards with viewing windows provides protection in transit and helps support the cut sheet. The bonding of LightBeton® wood composite boards can be carried out with dispersion glue, contact adhesive and reactive resin in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Backing paper
Free-standing applications, such as fronts, require a LightBeton® layer on both sides. In the case of permanently fixed elements a counteracting backing paper may be sufficient, depending on the size of the element and the installation conditions.
At the factory all standard panels are bonded on both sides with 1.5 mm thick LightBeton® on a 16 mm thick B1-MDF using PUR hot-melt. All panels come fire-rated and are covered by the fire protection consolidated certification B-s2, d0. The processor is responsible for checking whether the LightBeton® products are suitable for the intended application.
