What is foam concrete?
Foam concrete is the type of cellular concrete. Foam concrete is created by uniform distribution of air-cells through all weight of concrete. Unlike gas concrete, foam concrete come out not by means of chemical reactions, but by mechanical mixing of preliminary prepared foam with a the concrete mix.
The advantages of foam concrete application in the construction industry.
- Foam concrete has lower price in comparison with other building materials.
- Foam concrete service life under normal operation conditions is unlimited. In the course of time foam concrete became just stronger.
- The foam concrete weight is much less, than weight of standard heavy concretes. It leads to considerable economy in structure skeleton, the substructures, abutments or piles.
- The foam concrete lightness, bigger dimensions of blocks in comparison with the brick allow to increase the speed of a laying in several times and consequently to reduce expenses for building.
- Foam concrete has good durability along with high isolation characteristics.
- The good heat-insulating characteristics give advantages in energy saving for foam concrete made buildings, that allows to cut expenses on heating during the operation.
- Foam concrete is a good sound-absorbing material, that’s why foam concrete can be used as an acoustical insulating layer on plates of constructional concrete.
- Foam concrete is not subject to rotting and ageing, the foam concrete does not allocate toxic matters at operation that guarantees the full safety of foam concrete products for the person.
- The foam concrete products correspond to the first degree of fire resistance that is approved by the correspondent tests. The foam concrete suits well for application in fire-resistant constructions: at intensive heating the foam concrete is not bristled and does not blown up, in contrast to heavy concretes.
- The foam concrete is well processed, it can be sawn by manual saw, squared and hammered nails.
- The good of weight and volume ration of foam concrete and foam concrete constructions allows to cut considerably transport and montage expenses, to lower labour input of works.
- The large range of received densities (from 400 to 1600 kg/m³) allows to use foam concrete in many fields of application, depending on purposes of foam concrete products and their working conditions.
- The foam concrete is extremely easy in levelling and it can be used as a surface by thickness up to 40 mm.
