What is Cement foaming agent?
Foam concrete is lightweight concrete manufactured from cement, sand or fly ash, water, and foam. Foam concrete is in the form of foamed grout or foamed mortar. Foam concrete can be defined as a cementitious material that consists of a minimum of 20 percent foam that is mechanically entrained into the plastic mortar. The dry density of foamed concrete may vary from 300 to 1600 kg/m3. The compressive strength of foam concrete, determined at 28 days, ranges from 0.2 to 10N/mm2 or can go higher. Foamed concrete has a long history, and it was first made into use in the year 1923. It was initially used as an insulating material. Improvements throughout the past 20 years in production equipment and better quality foam-making agents make the use of foam concrete on a large scale.
Production of Foam Concrete
The production of foam concrete involves the dilution of surfactant in water, which is passed through a foam generator that will produce foam of stable form. The foam produced is mixed with the cementitious mortar or the grout so that foamed quantity of the required density is produced. These surfactants are also used in the manufacture of low-density fills. These are also called controlled low-strength Materials (CLSM). Here, to obtain an air content of 15 to 25 percent, the foam is added directly to a mix of low cement content and rich sand. It must be remembered that low-density fillers are supplied as foamed concrete by some manufacturers, so misleading must be taken care of. The base mix of cement and sand is added to a unit. In this unit, the mix is blended with foam thoroughly. The process of mixing is carried out with proper control. This will help in the mixing of larger quantities.
Inline Method of Foam Concrete Production
Wet Method of Inline System: The materials used in the wet method will be wetter. With the help of a series of static inline mixers, the base material and the foam are fed and mixed. The continual onboard density monitor is used to check the blending of the whole mix. The output volume depends on the density of the foamed concrete and not on the ready-mixed truck. One 8m3 base material delivery would produce 35m3 foamed concrete of 500kg/m3 density. Dry Method of Inline System: Here, dry materials are used. They are taken into the onboard silos. From here, they are weighed properly and mixed with the help of onboard mixers. The mixed base materials are then pumped into a mixing chamber. In the wet method of foam concrete production, foam is added and mixed. This method employs a large amount of water for mixing. One hundred thirty cubic meters of foamed concrete can be produced from a single cement or fly ash blend delivery.
Price of Cement foaming agent
Cement foaming agent particle size and purity will affect the product's Price, and the purchase volume can also affect the cost of the Cement foaming agent. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The Price of the Cement foaming agent is on our company's official website.
