    About Our Company

    Communication comes first.

CLC Africa Developments was started in 2002 with its main aim to introduce Alternative building methods into the South African Market. The alternative CLC product was tested and an Agrement Certificate approval was granted in 2002.

Due to the exceptional high costs to produce Cellular Light Weight Concrete the process was put on hold. The directors of CLC Africa reintroduced the CLC product back into the market in 2012.

The overall cost to produce CLC has drastically been improved and currently CLC Method is more than 30% cheaper to build with than that of Brick and Mortar construction.

The Quality of the product however does surpasses that of Brick and mortar substantially.

CLC Company Portrait

NEOPOR® System has been on the world-wide market with CLC (Cellular Lightweight Concrete) for more than 30 years and responsible for the construction of well over 300 000 apartments and houses, as well as schools, hospitals and commercial buildings in over 50 different countries, utilizing NEOPOR® equipment, foaming agent, fibres and of course NEOPOR® technology.

Buildings cast up to 25 years ago are evidence for the well ageing of CLC, using the same “ingredients” as in conventional concrete, namely sand, cement and water (gravel is large sand) and air, responsible for thermal insulation and weight reduction, embedded in our foam, which solely serves as wrapping medium and has no chemical reaction. Therefore CLC on its achievable level offers the same behaviour as convention concrete. As long as exposed to humidity in the atmosphere it will increase its mechanical properties (e.g. strength) infinitely.

Using only sand, CLC preserves natural resources such as gravel and clay, both running short in many parts of the world and as in the case of clay even being prohibited from use for building components in an increasing number of countries (e.g. China) already.

Natural resources are also preserved substantially by the high insulation properties of CLC, considering that it offers 500 % and more insulation than conventional concrete. Whilst in cold countries insulation serves primarily against cold weather, protecting against heat (air-conditioning) requires another 500% more primary energy to cool down – certainly a large bill for anyone’s budget.
