FOAM CONCRETE is a fluid and light mixture that contains uniformly distributed air particles in the form of foam produced by the foaming agent TECHCELL.
It is often referred to by the abbreviation CLC (cellular lightweight concrete) and is also called cellular concrete or lightweight concrete with foam, and differs from regular concrete because the inert is partially or totally replaced with small air bubbles that are artificially added to the mixture.
How to make FOAM CONCRETE.
What you need to make FOAM CONCRETE: components and machines.
The main components of FOAM CONCRETE (CLC) are water, cement, foaming agent TECHCELL and any inert for densities above 450 kg/m³.
Using COISOIMPER machines micro air bubbles are added to the mixture to give the final product a high capacity of thermal and acoustic walk-on insulation, lightweight, mechanical strength and workability.
How to use FOAM CONCRETE.
Applications and pouring FOAM CONCRETE.
The use of FOAM CONCRETE (CLC) makes it possible to build light castings to fill floors and roofs, screed, masonry blocks for exterior or partitions, prefabricated panels and all of those applications that require a lower density than regular concrete.
Advantages of FOAM CONCRETE.
Helpful information for applications and processing.
FOAM CONCRETE (CLC) has the great benefit of allowing many applications. In fact it is a lightweight and insulating material that is easy to apply.
The increase in mass density, therefore the dry density, provides improved mechanical strength, but less thermal insulation.
FOAM CONCRETE with a dry density between 250 – 450 kg/m³ is only used as thermal insulation or for filling in general, where compression strength is not required, such as Geotech filling.
For the production of masonry blocks, the ideal density is 600 – 800 kg/m³, while it is between 800 and 1.400 Kg/m³ for prefabricated panels or on-site casting.
Densities of 1.200 – 1.600 kg/m³ are used for finished screed, ready for tile application.
Other advantages of FOAM CONCRETE (CLC) are: product stability during production, consistent performance, 100% recyclable, fire resistance, easy availability of raw materials every where in the world and not subject to special processing, contained investments and costs, fast installation.
