The three Western European countries, the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, and the rapid increase in the number of new coronaviruses have had a significant impact on the economies of various countries. The suspension of the third service industry has severely hit the domestic tourism industry. At the same time, the shutdown of significant real estate construction industries has made economic development even worse.
The shutdown of the construction industry in the real estate industry has left producers of lightweight foam concrete unable to buy raw materials in an epidemic environment. Many manufacturers in Western Europe producing artistic components and lightweight foam concrete blocks use foamed cement for filling or non-load-bearing walls. These countries purchase the foaming agent, water-reducing admixtures, foam stabilizer, early strength agent, etc. required for the production of lightweight foam concrete. After processing return to their own country, they are processed into light weight bricks, lightweight concrete blocks, and backfills for road subgrades.
Western European countries purchase lightweight foam concrete admixtures through a company in Luoyang, China. The company provides foamed concrete admixtures, light partition boards, and self-insulating technology solutions. If needed, please contact the light foam concrete project manager email@example.com
