We are a leading manufacturer of protein, super protein and synthetic based foaming agent for cellular lightweight concrete(CLC). This product is also used for making a light weighted blocks or bricks.
Cellular lightweight concrete is a type of structural material made from a mixture of cement and water. It has the ability to hold its shape even when exposed to moisture or ions from the environment. It is a good option for use in a wide range of applications where light weight and high strength are required.
A chemical foaming agent is usually added to the mix of concrete base-mix constituents to produce air voids in the concrete through chemical reactions. It can be a protein or synthetic agent, either one entrains a higher volume of air bubbles to give a more stable bubble network and thus higher density [29,60].
Foaming agents are an essential part of the production process of cellular lightweight concrete as it is a major factor in determining the mechanical properties and thermal resistance of the final product. This means that the wrong type of foaming agent can have a dramatic impact on the performance of a product, so it is important to select the right type for your application.
The correct concentration of a foaming agent is critical to the performance of the final product, and this must be achieved with a carefully selected dilution rate. It should be diluted to the same ratio every time, so that each batch is of the same quality, and the bubbles in the concrete remain consistent and resilient throughout its lifetime.
