Foam concrete, also known as lightweight concrete, is a versatile material consisting essentially of cement-based mortar mixed with at least 20% by volume of air. With strong flow ability, low weight, low aggregate consumption, controlled low strength, excellent insulation performance. It may have a range of dry densities, typically 400 kg / m 3 to 1600 kg / m 3, and a compressive strength in the range of 1 MPa to 15 MPa.
The foamed concrete can be easily placed, if desired, by pumping, and does not require compaction, vibration or leveling. It has excellent water resistance and frostiness, and offers a high level of sound insulation and insulation.
The foamed concrete forms a rigid, well-bonded body after hydration. It is actually an independent (integral) structure that, once hardened, does not apply lateral loads to adjacent structures. Foam concrete is widely used for roof insulation and slopes on flat roofs. It has good insulation properties because it is lightweight foam concrete and does not exert a large load on the building. More importantly, it has the same service life as the building, so you can save a lot of maintenance costs.
What kind of foam concrete machine is suitable for roof insulation? It should not be so large in size to easily move from one work area to another. In addition, it should be strong enough to transport the foam concrete to a higher level, only to be able to save energy and improve efficiency. Our GF10A foam concrete machine is designed for roof insulation. Can produce 15 m3 per hour of foam concrete, the maximum vertical height of up to 80 meters, to meet the needs of medium-sized construction projects most of the demand.
