Foam Cement Construction Process
In terms of international pricing benchmarks, according to the CP data released by Saudi Aramco, the propane contract price (CP) in March was $895 / ton, up $120 / ton from the previous month, up 15.48% from the previous month and up 43.20% from the same period last year. Butane contract price (CP) in March was 920 US dollars/ton, up 145 US dollars/ton compared with last month, up 18.71% month-on-month, up 54.62% compared with the same period last year; In March, CP in Saudi Arabia rose sharply, giving a strong boost to the international and domestic LPG market. Benchmark LPG prices are higher than a year ago as the economy continues to recover and demand for crude oil continues to repair. According to this trend, the market price of concrete foaming agent will also be affected to a certain extent.
What is Foam Cement?
Foam cement is a new type of lightweight thermal insulation material containing a large number of closed pores. It is to use mechanical method first to concrete foaming agent full foam, and then foam and cement mud even mixing, cast-in-place construction, or through the pumping system of foaming machine molding and become. Finally, after natural conservation, formed.
It belongs to a kind of bubble insulation material. Its outstanding feature is the closed foam hole inside the concrete can make the concrete lightweight, heat preservation, and heat insulation.
Foam Cement Construction Process
Feed the concrete foaming agent into the air compressor to produce foam with a certain tension. Then mix the foam and cement slurry, during this process cement will continue to expand. When the expansion effect reaches the preset ratio the foam cement can be produced.
Usually, the foam cement is used in the field of the ground heating insulation layer, roof insulation layer, and frame structure of the wall filling layer.
For cement, people generally use 32.5R ordinary Portland cement. For the foaming agent, the animal foaming agent is recommended for the insulation industry.
Because in terms of the performance, animal foaming agents can produce independent pores, and the product has high strength. The produced foam cement has light bulk density, uniform distribution of pores, good thermal insulation, permeability, and good sound insulation. Due to the characteristics of continuous bubbles, compared with animal foaming agents, vegetable foaming agents can make foam cement with higher bulk density and poor thermal insulation, and it is inferior to animal foaming agents in impermeability and sound insulation. However, the vegetable foaming agent has the advantages of a large foaming amount and good fluidity and is easier to operate than animal foaming agents in floor heating construction.
It is suggested that foaming agent manufacturers produce foaming agents with different characteristics according to construction needs. For example, for constructing the inclined roof, the pure animal foaming agent is recommended, because its fluidity is poor, and strength is good. For flat roofing and the floor heating construction, the mixed foaming agent is recommended. Because the mixed foaming agent is added a certain botanical composition on the basis of the animal foaming agent, so that the foam multiples, the liquidity increases, and it is easy to level, making it suitable for floor heating construction.

Due to the limited total amount of traditional energy, people have a huge demand for cleaner and greener new energy alternatives. Now, the emergence of graphene is unlocking the possibility of its application in the energy field, which can create a greener, more efficient, and sustainable future. Here Francesco Bonaccorso, Deputy Director of Innovation at the Graphene Flagship Program, explains how his researchers have developed a series of initiatives to bring graphene from the lab to the commercial market. Graphene has become a research hotspot for new materials in the 21st century. Graphene has been adopted by many industries, the most notable of which are healthcare and key material applications.
The development of graphene has brought huge fluctuations in the demand for concrete foaming agent, and the demand for concrete foaming agent will continue to grow in the future. You can contact us for the latest news on concrete foaming agent.
