Question 2: How is foamed concrete made?

Foamed Concrete is made by adding a special foam to a cement mortar slurry. This foam is made from a Foaming agent which a highly concentrated, highly efficient, low dosage liquid which is fed with water into an Foam Generator.

Inside the generator, the mixture of Foaming agent and water (pre-foaming solution) is blown by compressed air at high pressure through the foaming lance. This produces a uniform, stable foam which has a volume of about 20 to 25 times that of the pre-foaming solution.

Foamed Concrete can be placed easily, by pumping if necessary and does not require compaction or levelling. It has excellent water and frost resistance and provides a high level of both sound and thermal insulation. Foamed Concrete is very stable and will not collapse or reduce its volume whilst it is setting
