Perlite Concrete Blocks (PCBs)

Perlite Concrete Blocks

Perlite Concrete Blocks can be manufactured as per project requirement and specifications and delivered across the globe in containers from our manufacturing plant in Jebel Ali, Dubai.

Gulf Perlite Concrete Blocks (PCBs) are lightweight, insulating blockworks engineered for bottom ring beams of double-wall cryogenic tanks. Gulf Perlite PCBs provide excellent thermal insulation and structural support against static and dynamic loads. Gulf Perlite PCBs are manufactured from a mix of Gulf Perlite Construct LW aggregate, Portland cement, and special admixtures; and is reinforced with special steel bars and lifting hooks. Gulf Perlite PCBs are manufactured at our state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Jebel Ali, Dubai under stringent quality standards for achieving strength, thermal properties and dimensional tolerances. The blocks then are installed on a leveling perlite concrete layer that is placed or poured above the bottom plate.
