Structural Lightweight Concrete — What, why, how

The concrete mixture is made with a lightweight coarse aggregate. In some cases a portion or the entire fine aggregate may be a lightweight product. Lightweight aggregates used in structural lightweight concrete are typically expanded shale, clay or slate materials that have been fired in a rotary kiln to develop a porous structure.

Expanded Shale (and Slate)

The shale must contain minerals (mostly carbonates) that will produce gas at the same temperature as the shale begins to sinter (soften prior to melting). This allows the mass to expand. Rapid cooling preserves expanded voids. Slate is metamorphosed shale; the expansive properties of slate likewise depend on its mineralogy and bulk chemistry.
