The article presents the results of testing physical and strength properties of concrete with the addition of lightweight perlite in the amount of 10 and 20%. The additive was introduced by volume substituting a part of the sand. In addition, the effect of using siloxane admixtures and a vinyl acetate copolymer with different degree of dosing, as well as applied simultaneously, were analysed. The tests were carried out in the field of bulk density and proper density, determination of tightness

In terms of durability of concrete, absorption and resistance of concretes to the freeze-up effects after 100 freezing and thawing cycles were tested. The results of the study were subjected to statistical analysis using the analysis of variance. The analysed factors of influence were the amount of perlite addition, as well as the type and amount of the added admixture
