Production overview of cement foaming agents
The application of cement foaming agents in China has a history of over 50 years. In the early 1950s, China developed rosin soap and homopolymer, two foaming agents, and used them in mortar and foam concrete. These two foaming agents have been widely used in China for decades and are familiar to the building materials and construction industry. They are China's first generation of foaming agents and still have significant applications. After the 1980s, with the rise of China's surface active industry, synthetic surfactant foaming agents began to be applied. They replaced a considerable portion of rosin soap and thermoplastic, becoming a significant variety of foaming agents. This is the development period of China's second-generation foaming agents. At the end of the last century, high-performance protein-based foaming agents from developed countries such as Italy, Japan, South Korea, and the United States began entering China with the Chinese market's opening up, gradually demonstrating their advantages of high stability and being widely used. With the promotion of foreign protein foaming agents, various brands of animal protein foaming agents have also been developed in Qinghai and other regions of China. Plant protein foaming agents have also begun to appear, be promoted, and be applied in southeast coastal areas. China has entered the development and application period of the third generation of foaming agents. Nowadays, China's foaming agents are transitioning from the third to the fourth generation, gradually developing from single-component to multi-component composite. But this is only the beginning, and composite technology still needs to be improved and improved. China will take some time to enter the era of blended foaming agents fully. So, China is the first generation of rosin, the second generation of synthetic, and the third generation of protein. These three generations of foaming agents exist and are applied simultaneously, and no one is completely eliminated, nor does anyone completely dominate the foaming agent market. The reason for the "Spring and Autumn Period" of this type of foaming agent is that many people lack basic knowledge of foaming agents, making it difficult to distinguish them, choosing them out of order, and blindly using the ingredients. This means low-performing foaming agents are not necessarily abandoned, and high-performance foaming agents are not necessarily preferred. With the rapid development of foam concrete and the gradual popularization of foam concrete knowledge, people will have a deeper, more comprehensive understanding of foaming agents, so their selection and use will be gradually rational and scientific. At that time, high-quality and high-performance foaming agents will naturally develop comprehensively, and low-performance foaming agents will automatically exit the market. This is an inevitable result, not subject to human will. Advanced things permanently eliminate backward things, and the market is ruthless.
