Foam concrete, also called lightweight concrete, is a versatile material that consists primarily of a cement-based mortar mixed with at least 20% of volume air. It possesses high flowability, low self-weight, minimal consumption of aggregate, controlled low strength, and excellent thermal insulation properties. It can have a range of dry densities, typically from 400 kg/m3 to 1600 kg/m3, and a range of compressive strengths, 1 MPa to 15 MPa.
Foamed Concrete can be placed easily, by pumping if necessary, and does not require compaction, vibrating, or leveling. It has excellent resistance to water and frost and provides a high level of both sound and thermal insulation.
Foam concrete forms a rigid, well-bonded body after hydrating. It is effectively a free-standing (monolithic) structure and once hardened, does not impose lateral loads on adjacent structures. Foamed Concrete is used extensively for roof insulation and for making a slope on flat roofs. It has good thermal insulation properties and because it is lightweight foamed concrete does not impose a large loading on the building. What is more, it has the same service life as a building, so it can save much money on maintenance.
What kind of cement foam concrete machine is suitable for roof insulation? It should be not so big size so that easy to transfer from one working area to another. Besides, it should be powerful enough to deliver the foam concrete to a higher height, only this can be energy-saving and improve efficiency. Our cement foam concrete machine for roof insulation is specially designed for roof insulation. Cement foam concrete machine for roof insulation can produce 15 m3 foam concrete per hour, and the maximum vertical height can be 80 meters, which can meet most demands of middle-scale construction projects.
