REAPOR’s basic material is the granular expanded glass Liaver, a spherical and lightweight building material made from recycled glass. It has already found uses in building, for example as an additive to mortar or plaster to reduce material density and thereby weight. In the production of REAPOR, the granular expanded glass is sintered. The tiny spheres of glass are heated and certain agents added. At the points where the Liaver spheres touch, extremely stable bonds or sintering necks are generated.
