Global concrete foaming agent market trend 2023-2030 What is the advantages of foam cement insulation layer? by Newsmapachili

Brazil, the world's largest coffee bean producer, recently announced that it is facing the worst drought in 91 years, affecting local hydropower generation and agricultural concrete foaming agent keeps going up.

What is Foam Cement?

Foam cement is a kind of new light insulation material containing a large number of closed pores. It is made by firstly fully foaming the concrete foaming agent with mechanical methods, then evenly mixing the foam with the cement slurry, conducting cast-in-place construction, or mold forming through the pumping system of the foaming machine. Finally, after natural maintenance, it is formed.

It belongs to a kind of bubble-shaped adiabatic material. The outstanding characteristic is that the closed foam holes inside the concrete can make concrete light and heat preservative and insulate.

 

Advantages of Foam Cement Insulation Layer

Using foam cement to make roof insulation and external wall insulation, instead of polystyrene (benzene board) and other insulation materials, has incomparable insulation performance and structural layer adhesion performance, it is convenient for construction, environmentally friendly, efficient, time-saving, etc.

The practice has proved that foam cement has properties of good thermal insulation, heat preservation, sound insulation, light load, better than other light solid plastic extruded perlite, ceramsite, asbestos products, and other thermal insulation materials, with simple operation, high degree of mechanization, saving time, labor characteristics. Foamed cement can be transported by mechanical vertical pipeline, which shortens the working hours and improves the efficiency by 6~10 times more than other ways.

Besides, using foam cement as roof thermal insulation material, makes the adhesion between the heat insulation layer and the floor surface greatly improved.

 

In the past, most floor heating construction uses benzene board as the insulation layer, which cannot be well combined with the original base surface, but there is no effective adhesion, resulting in delamination, empty drum, cracking, etc. Using foam cement body as the thermal insulation layer, the foam cement insulation layer and the original floor of the small uneven base surface filling, and can grasp, grasp the formation of strong adhesion. After construction, the original surface layer basically reaches the required level, which brings convenience to the next process and ensures the overall effect of uniform thickness of the surface layer.

In addition, after using the insulation layer made by the original benzene board for 1-2 years, due to a long time of trampling, it is gradually sinking after bearing force, and it can crack up to 5~10mm. It will also cause damage to the heating pipe and water leakage.  Using foam cement insulation layer can avoid such phenomenon, because the compressive strength of foam cement is higher than benzene board, the advantage is very obvious.

 

At the same time, using the benzene plate as the insulation layer, while heating with the temperature rise, polystyrene (benzene plate) will release residual body benzene and alkylene, etc. Especially in winter heating, doors and windows are closed, air mobility is very poor, and toxic gas cannot be replaced, which will cause certain harm to the human body. The roofing insulation made of foamed cement is not. The cement foaming agent is made of vegetable fatty acids, and the synthetic body is water-soluble. It is a safe environmental health product and will not cause harm to the human body.

Through the research of cement foaming technology, in terms of the heat insulation, adhesion, bearing, environmental health, and other aspects, the foam cement insulation layer is greatly superior to other heat insulation materials, especially suitable for large projects, high floors of convenient, fast on-site production construction. The foam cement insulation layer can also reduce the height of the floor, from the point of view of building structure design, can reduce the cost, and save the cost of the project.

Southern Copper Corp (SCCO.N) recently said its Peruvian mine remained closed after a six-week standoff with protesters and blamed the Peruvian government for failing to intervene in the safety of its 1,300 workers and their families.  

The company said in a statement that a recent agreement to end protests at the Cuajone mine required the company to withdraw complaints against protest leaders because railways transporting minerals and supplies remained blocked. Production has been suspended since the end of February.  

Peru's Energy Ministry said in a separate statement that it had also reached an agreement with Southern Copper to start talks to find common ground with local communities.  

"If we shut down for a year, the government will stop receiving more than 3.1 billion soles ($830 million) in taxes and royalties, and 8,000 direct and indirect jobs will be lost. This is what we want to avoid, "Southern Copper added in the statement.

Peru has faced a wave of protests from indigenous communities, who accuse mining companies of not providing enough jobs and funding to poor local residents.  

Central bank officials said last week that protests against copper mines such as MMG's Las Bambas and Southern Copper's Cuajone were dragging down the economy.  

Peru is the world's second-largest copper producer and mining is an important source of tax revenue for the country. It is estimated that the supply and prices of the concrete foaming agent will be influenced by that.
