-> Foaming Agent for Cellular Concrete
Protein based foaming agent which is normally known as light weight concrete/foamed concrete. This contains surfactants that are natural and it is mixed with raw materials (organic) and it works in synergy. ADDAGE foaming agent is an innovative and highly effective chemical.
Foaming agent is a chemical that is complete protein based with active enzyme and components, it is commonly used for making light concrete or foam concrete.
Protein based foaming agent gives high stability of the foam, successfully with standing the conditions when mixing, conveying (pump-able), pouring, casting and during the setting and hydration process. The foam causes no chemical reaction in the concrete but it acts as a binding for the air entrapped.
Dilute foaming agent in water and mix with compressed air in concrete foam generator to produce fine foam. The foam produced is fine and it is of high stable quality. The Stability and density of foam totally depends on the setting & dilution of foam generator. Now add this foam in the mixture of cement and fly ash to make light weight concrete bricks.
Foaming Agent is used as (250-1400 kg/m3). The real concentration to use completely depends on casting strength, equipments and quantity of water quality. This foam is used in production of concrete blocks, slabs, panels, thermal insulation and void filling etc.
The minimum shelf life of foaming agent is about 2 years; it depends on the storing place temperature. Shelf life will be more if foaming agent is stored in original containers.
The temperature for storing foaming agent should always below than 490 C. This product can with stand discontinuous, less exposure time up to 600 C. Make sure that the containers of foaming agent are stay away from direct sunlight or any kind of heat for long time. And also protect the foaming agent container from freezing temperature as both either very high or very low temperature directly affects the product.
Foaming Agents are well known as environmentally safe product, due to bio-degradable nature and it is also less toxic to aquatic organisms. Bricks made by foaming agent are very Eco-friendly.

As the construction industry is growing with rapid speed the needs and requirements are changing in vital manner. Chemical becomes necessary for high tech construction due to less time and higher requirements, and when itís about foaming agent they plays most vital role in the field of construction.
