Is the concrete foaming agent liquid?

What is foam concrete foaming agent?
Foam concrete foaming agent, also known as foamed concrete or lightweight concrete. Foaming concrete is a new type of light thermal insulation material with a large number of closed pores, which is formed by fully foaming the foaming agent by mechanical means through the foaming system of the foaming machine, uniformly mixing the foam with cement slurry and then carrying out cast-in-place construction or mould moulding through the pumping system of the foaming machine.
Classification of foaming agents for foam concrete
Chemical foaming agents are those compounds that release gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen after being decomposed by heating and form pores in the polymer composition.
The chemical foaming agent can be divided into the inorganic foaming agent and organic foaming agent.
1.Organic foaming agents mainly include the following categories:
1) Azo compounds
2) Sulfonyl hydrazide compounds
3) Nitroso compounds
2.Inorganic foaming agents mainly fall into the following categories:
The foam pore of a physical foaming agent is formed by the change of the physical form of a substance, that is, by the expansion of compressed gas, the volatilization of liquid or the dissolution of solid; then this substance is called the physical foaming agent.
Foaming agents for concrete and foaming agent for cement refer to additives that can reduce the surface tension of the liquid and produce a large number of uniform and stable foams to produce foamed concrete. The foaming agent is a kind of substance that can make its aqueous solution produce a lot of foam when mechanical force is introduced into the air. This kind of substance is surfactant or surfactant. The essence of the foaming agent is its surface activity. Without surface activity, you can't foam, and you can't become a foaming agent. Surface activity is the core of foaming.
Characteristics of foam concrete foaming agent
First is environmental protection.
Foamed concrete is made of cement and a foaming agent, not to mention cement. The foaming agent is a neutral product and does not contain harmful substances such as benzene and formaldehyde, so it avoids environmental pollution and harm to human health.
Second, the construction is convenient.
The foamed concrete can be automatically operated only by using the cement foaming machine and can be pumped to realize long-distance transportation with a vertical height of 200 meters, with a workload of 150-300 cubic meters per working day. At the same time, it can also improve work efficiency!
Third, lightweight.
The density of foaming agents is relatively small, especially in recent years; German ultra-light concrete with a density of 160kg/m3 has been widely used in construction projects. As the density of foamed concrete is relatively small, foamed concrete is lighter than other similar products. However, foamed concrete with low density and light weight has a stronger bearing capacity than ordinary concrete.
Fourth, good thermal insulation performance.
Because foamed concrete contains a large number of tiny closed pores, it has good thermal performance, that is, good thermal insulation performance, which ordinary concrete does not have.
Fourthly, the shockproof effect is good.
Foamed concrete is a new type of light thermal insulation material with a large number of closed pores, which makes it shockproof and can reduce the impact of other objects on itself in disasters because its own characteristics will absorb part of the impact and disperse part of the impact.
Fifth, sound insulation and fire resistance are good.
Foamed concrete is a porous material, so compared with ordinary concrete, foamed concrete can absorb and disperse part of the noise and achieve the effect of "silencing". This kind of material is common in high-rise buildings and highways.
Price of foam concrete foaming agent
Foam concrete foaming agent particle size and purity will affect the product's price, and the purchase volume can also affect the foam concrete foaming agent cost. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The price of foam concrete foaming agents can be found on our company's official website.
