A foaming agent is a material that facilitates formation of foam. The term refers to either:
- A surfactant, which, when present in small amounts, reduces surface tension of a liquid (reduces the work needed to create the foam) or increases its colloidal stability by inhibiting coalescence of bubbles
Majority of people even call concrete in combination with foaming agent as foamed concrete, reduced density concrete and even lightweight concrete. Professionals mostly produce these types of lightweight concrete (used in clc bricks) by pouring of externally generated foam in to a slurry mixture of concrete. Foaming agent are classified in two categories namely protein based agents referred as byproducts of animals and synthetic materials which is ether based. Protein based agents has very short shelf life and also bad odor.we manufacture synthetic based foaming agents.
