Arcosa Lightweight is the largest producer of rotary kiln expanded shale and clay lightweight aggregate in North America, with production facilities in California, Colorado, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Kentucky, Indiana and Arkansas.
Arcosa Lightweight is uniquely situated to supply expanded shale and clay lightweight aggregate to markets in most of the 48 contiguous states. With plants located with access to America's extensive inland river system, as well as the nation's railroad network, Arcosa Lightweight is able to serve the construction industry from California to Virginia and from Minnesota to Florida, and most points in between.
Arcosa Lightweight's expanded shale and clay lightweight aggregate can reduce the density of compacted geotechnical fills by up to one-half. This advantage, coupled with its predictable high internal friction angle, can also reduce lateral forces by more than one-half, making it the ideal backfill material for reducing the cost of sheet piling and retaining walls at port facilities. Arcosa’s lightweight aggregate has also been effectively used to increase the durability and service life of concrete when it is used for Internal Curing.
ARCOSA, Inc. is a diversified industrial company that owns market-leading businesses providing products and services to the energy, transportation, chemical, and construction sectors.
