the most questions we've had
LWIC stands for LIGHTWEIGHT INSULATING CONCRETE. LWIC is a product derived from a combination of Portland cement, water, and preformed cellular foam. These ingredients get mixed together on-site and poured in place to form a lightweight insulating concrete roof deck.
LWIC systems produce a monolithic insulation system with increased wind uplift and fire ratings. It is considered a Green Building Material and can be used in eco-friendly buildings.
Yes, LWIC provides a monolithic system that does not allow the same amount of stress on a roof membrane that you would typically see from a rigid insulation system. The joints between the boards in a typical rigid insulation system impart mechanical stresses on the attached membrane during the heating and cooling of the day, weakening the membrane significantly over time.
NO! Once LWIC achieves its initial set, the product does not expand to its original wet volume; therefore control joints and/or filler are NOT required.
