PLASCON is a dense aggregate general purpose concrete building block manufactured in Solid Hollow and Cellular units and in an extensive range of strengths. The high density and high strength of PLASCON provides high levels of durability and robustness loadbearing capacity and fixability. Sound insulation of PLASCON particularly in Multicore format is impressive. Multicore blocks to 140mm comply with the 20kg single lift requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations.

PLASCON is manufactured from crushed limestone aggregate recycled aggregates and pulverized fuel ash. They are plain ended light buff in colour and available in Open Texture and paint grade quality Close Texture which accepts direct painting for an attractive smooth and low maintenance finish.
