Is it time to scrap Polystyrene as a void former in Australia?
Recently there has been a shift in the Australian market for sustainable concreting products. One product has received scathing reviews but what is so bad about it? And, what is the alternative?
First developed in the 1980s the Waffle Pod has always been popular as a cheap, quick and lightweight void former in concrete slabs for housing and commercial buildings. Often chosen due to their ease of use, Waffle Pods tout a reduction in the amount of concrete used for slabs but recently they have come under fire for their environmental impacts.
