What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents

The spread of the novel coronavirus is taking a direct hit on the operations of airlines in Asia. About 500,000 flights taking off and landing in mainland China have been canceled since January, according to aviation information company Cerium. Tourists and business trips have plummeted. On the booking website, there are a large number of air tickets for local routes with a price reduction of nearly 90% compared with the original price and only tens of yuan for a one-way trip.
In February, China's aviation industry recorded its largest single-month loss of 24.59 billion yuan, of which airlines lost 20.96 billion yuan.
Data from the Civil Aviation Administration of China showed that in February, the number of passengers traveling by air fell 84.5% year-on-year to 8.34 million.
The stagnation of the Asian aviation industry has brought volatility to foam concrete.


What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents?

The foamed concrete foaming agent can make concrete appear a lot of foam to accelerate the formation and use of foamed concrete. Use efficiency and speed up the progress of the entire construction project. Foamed concrete foaming agents are available in the market. What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents?


What is foam concrete foaming agent?

The foamed concrete foaming agent is a substance that can make its aqueous solution generate a large amount of foam when the mechanical force is introduced into the air. This kind of substance is a surfactant or a surface-active substance. The former such as anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, etc., and the latter, such as animal protein, vegetable protein, pulp waste liquid, and so on. Foamed concrete foaming agent, also known as a cement foaming agent, foam concrete foaming agent refers to an admixture that can reduce the surface tension of the liquid and generate a large amount of uniform and stable foam for the production foamed concrete.


2. What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents?

(1)Rosin resin

This type of foaming agent is made of rosin as the main raw material, and its application has long been common. The chemical structure of rosin is relatively complex, containing rosin acids, aromatic hydrocarbons, aromatic alcohols, aromatic aldehydes, and oxides. Rosin resin foaming agent is also known as an air-entraining agent. Its main varieties are rosin soap and rosin homopolymer. It was initially developed and applied as an air-entraining agent for concrete mortar and later expanded to be used as a foaming agent for foamed concrete.

(2) Synthetic class

Following the rosin-based foaming agents, various synthetic surfactant-based foaming agents have been developed. This type of foaming agent has been widely used in cement foaming abroad since the 1950s. Among various synthetic surfactant foaming agents, the anionic type is generally welcomed due to its fast foaming and large foaming multiple. The cationic foaming agent is expensive and has a certain influence on the strength of cement, so it is not used much.

(3) Protein active substance type

The protein-based foaming agent is the current high-grade foaming agent with good performance and good development prospects. From the general development trend, it will occupy a larger and larger proportion in the application in recent years. Although its price is high, mostly above 15,000 yuan/ton, it will still be accepted by the market due to its better performance.


There are many foam concrete foaming agents, but there are only three or four common ones. The use of foamed concrete foaming agents can accelerate the formation of concrete and quickly make the concrete reach the standard of use, thereby promoting the progress of the entire construction project. , The development of foam concrete foaming agents has gone through a long process, and it is currently widely used in construction projects.

A preparation developed in China; the comfort and the multifunctional properties of nanomaterials make "dead skin" capable of sensing again. Electronic skin is artificial skin that mimics the function of human skin. Recently, the world-renowned journal Advanced Science reported a simple and highly programmable electronic skin on a leather substrate developed by a Chinese team, which combines the natural complex structure of leather, the comfort of wearing, and the multi-functional properties of nanomaterials. , so that the "dead skin" has the ability to sense again.

In the future, foam concrete will be used in various high-tech fields, and the market demand for foam concrete will also be great. Please contact us for more information on foam concrete.
