Foaming agent plant-based
Advantage
The plant-based cement foaming agent is made of imported high-quality natural plant polymer materials as raw materials, and is formed through a series of complex chemical reactions. The product is a light yellow pure transparent oily liquid. Insensitive to hard water, non-toxic, odorless, and non-sediment. The PH value is close to neutral, non-corrosive to cement and metals, and does not pollute the environment.
The foaming agent is storage-resistant, hard to deteriorate, has excellent foaming performance, is rich in foam, and has moderate foam stability. The use of this foaming agent to make foamed cement has the characteristics of low consumption, low cost and stable quality. Each barrel of foaming agent (200kg) can produce about 500 cubic meters of foamed cement, so it is widely used in floor heating projects and In roof insulation projects, construction costs can be significantly reduced.
Disadvantage
1. Because the internal pores of the foamed cement made with this foaming agent are connected, the foamed cement has good air permeability and poor permeability resistance, and cannot be used in water-impermeable projects.
2. Compared with the foamed cement made of animal foaming agent under the same density, its thermal insulation performance and compressive strength are slightly damaged, so the application in some projects with special requirements is subject to certain restrictions.
3. Due to the constraints of the foam stability of the vegetable foaming agent, the thickness of the foamed cement poured at one time is generally not more than 200 mm, otherwise the surface collapse is prone to occur.

Foaming agent animal
Advantage
Animal cement foaming agent is made of selected animal (bovine, sheep) keratin protein as the main raw material, after a series of hydrolysis reactions, heating and dissolving, diluting, filtering, and shrinking at high temperature. It is produced by foaming equipment and manufacturing process. The production process implements strict quality management. The product is dark brown viscous liquid, low impurity content, light irritating odor, uniform quality, good quality consistency, good foaming and excellent The foam stability is a new generation of animal cement foaming agent. Due to the high surface strength of the foam produced by the foaming agent, the foam is extremely stable, and the foamed cement made with it is in a mutually independent closed state, and the foamed cement product is not connected between the bubbles. The permeability resistance of the foamed cement product is very high. it is good.
1. Under the same density, compared with foamed cement made with vegetable foaming agent, it has better sealing and heat preservation and higher strength.
2. Due to its excellent foam stability, the thickness of the foamed cement poured at one time can reach more than 1.5 meters without collapsing, so it is suitable for the production of foamed bricks, lightweight boards and lightweight walls.
Disadvantage
1. Due to the complex production process, the product cost is relatively high.
2. The foaming ability of this foaming agent is not as good as that of vegetable foaming agent, and the consumption of foaming cement is relatively high.
3. It has a certain pungent odor, which can only disappear after being made into foamed cement.
