MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF FOAM CONCRETE

What is foaming agent?

The foaming agent is an indispensable component in the preparation of foam concrete by using prefabricated foams. This study used four types of foaming agents to prepare foam concrete. Effect of the foaming agent on the properties of fresh and hardened foam concrete, the interaction between the foaming agent and cement, and the gas–liquid interface in foam concrete were studied. It is observed that the interaction between foaming agents and cement played a more significant role in the formation process of foam concrete. The property of gas–the liquid interface of foam concrete was the most critical factor for the performance of foam concrete, which determined the stability of fresh foam concrete, the pore structure, and the products on the pore wall of hardened foam concrete. Finally, the evolution mechanism of foams in new foam concrete w discussed.

 

The effect of foaming agent doses on lightweight geopolymer concrete metakaolin based

This study aims to obtain optimal doses of foaming agent on lightweight geopolymer concrete using fly Ash (FA) and metakaolin (MK) as raw materials. Several tests were conducted to obtain characteristics of geopolymer lightweight concrete using foaming agents with different doses. The levels of foaming agent used were 0%, 0.3%, 0.6%, and 0.9% from the binder weight. A group of metakaolin content of 25% by precursor mass was applied in this research. In addition, an activator solution with the ratio of Na2SiO3 / NaOH of 2 and a Concentration of NaOH of 10 Molar was performed in this research. Doses of a foaming agent of 0%, 0.3%, 0.6%, and 0.9% by weight of the binder were used. Based on test results, the best mechanical and physical properties of lightweight concrete were owned by specimens with doses of foam 0%. The recommended foam dosage is 0.3% due to its fair enough mechanical and physical properties of lightweight geopolymer concrete produced.

 

MANUFACTURING PROCESS OF FOAM CONCRETE

The cement, sand, and water are mixed, and the slurry is kept in a buffer tank. It should be continuously stirred to avoid segregation. The Foaming agent and water are mixed separately in specialized foam production equipment. The compressed air is supplied according to the amount of foam required. This foam is then injected into the slurry to make foam concrete. These cement-based mortars contain a minimum of 20% of foam.

 

Price of foaming agent

Foaming agent particle size and purity will affect the product's Price, and the purchase volume can also affect the cost of Foaming agent. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The Price of foaming agent is on our company's official website.
