What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents

Analysts at JPMorgan recommended selling or "underweight" emerging market local currency sovereign debt because of the global impact of the Ukraine-Russia crisis.

JPMorgan estimated that fixed-income assets in emerging markets have lost 6-9 percent of their value since Russia invaded Ukraine a month ago, with nervousness about the war and its impact on global energy and food prices adding to existing pressures.

Some leading emerging market central banks are signaling that interest rates now need to rise faster than previously expected, which fuels fears of "stagflation". Stagflation means when high inflation and higher interest rates undermine economic growth.  

With both the U.S. Federal Reserve and emerging market central banks raising interest rates, JPMorgan also said it made sense to "underweight" emerging market assets by taking advantage of the recent pullback in local currency bond yields relative to TREASURIES.  

JPMorgan said major metals exporters such as South Africa, Chile, and Peru could still do well, but warned that emerging market fixed income assets now faced a more "stagflationary" trajectory.

The markets and prices of many commodities, metals, chemicals like the foam concrete still face uncertainty.


What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents?

The foamed concrete foaming agent can make concrete appear a lot of foam to accelerate the formation and use of foamed concrete. Use efficiency and speed up the progress of the entire construction project. Foamed concrete foaming agents are available in the market. What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents?


What is foam concrete foaming agent?

The foamed concrete foaming agent is a substance that can make its aqueous solution generate a large amount of foam when the mechanical force is introduced into the air. This kind of substance is a surfactant or a surface-active substance. The former such as anionic surfactants, cationic surfactants, non-ionic surfactants, etc., and the latter, such as animal protein, vegetable protein, pulp waste liquid, and so on. Foamed concrete foaming agent, also known as a cement foaming agent, foam concrete foaming agent refers to an admixture that can reduce the surface tension of the liquid and generate a large amount of uniform and stable foam for the production foamed concrete.


2. What are the types of foam concrete foaming agents?

(1)Rosin resin

This type of foaming agent is made of rosin as the main raw material, and its application has long been common. The chemical structure of rosin is relatively complex, containing rosin acids, aromatic hydrocarbons, aromatic alcohols, aromatic aldehydes, and oxides. Rosin resin foaming agent is also known as an air-entraining agent. Its main varieties are rosin soap and rosin homopolymer. It was initially developed and applied as an air-entraining agent for concrete mortar and later expanded to be used as a foaming agent for foamed concrete.

(2) Synthetic class

Following the rosin-based foaming agents, various synthetic surfactant-based foaming agents have been developed. This type of foaming agent has been widely used in cement foaming abroad since the 1950s. Among various synthetic surfactant foaming agents, the anionic type is generally welcomed due to its fast foaming and large foaming multiple. The cationic foaming agent is expensive and has a certain influence on the strength of cement, so it is not used much.

(3) Protein active substance type

The protein-based foaming agent is the current high-grade foaming agent with good performance and good development prospects. From the general development trend, it will occupy a larger and larger proportion in the application in recent years. Although its price is high, mostly above 15,000 yuan/ton, it will still be accepted by the market due to its better performance.


There are many foam concrete foaming agents, but there are only three or four common ones. The use of foamed concrete foaming agents can accelerate the formation of concrete and quickly make the concrete reach the standard of use, thereby promoting the progress of the entire construction project. , The development of foam concrete foaming agents has gone through a long process, and it is currently widely used in construction projects.

Because of the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, there is a shortage of natural gas supply. At the same time, other renewable energy sources cannot produce enough electricity, so electricity prices have soared in many countries of the world. For this reason, I assume the supply and prices of the foam concrete would keep being influenced by the high energy prices.
