A clc foam generator is a device that produces a high-quality foaming agent. It is used to produce a variety of foam concrete products, including CLC bricks, lightweight concrete blocks, and more.
Foaming agents are chemical substances that, when diluted with water, create a foam. The type of foaming agent that you use will have an effect on the quality of your cellular lightweight concrete (CLC).
Protein-based and Super protein-based foaming agents are used in CLC production as they are very safe for the environment, cause no harm to human beings, and have a high density when mixed with water. Synthetic-based foaming agents are also available that have more stability and pump-ability than protein-based, but they can be more expensive.
Choosing foaming agents for CLC is not an easy task as there are many different types on the market. Some are better suited to the manufacturing process, while others are more stable for long-term storage and have a longer shelf life.
Some people recommend adding Sodium Bicarbonate to the foaming agent for increased strength and to improve the flow properties of the concrete. However, this is a guessing game and it has not been scientifically proven.
CLC is a light-weight concrete, which can be manufactured using the same equipment and molds as regular concrete. It is made by mixing Portland cement, sand, fly ash, and foam in various proportions. It is used in construction, building foundations and disaster rehabilitative buildings.
