Foaming agent PB-2000
The foaming agent PB-2000 is intended to be used in the production of different foam concrete.
The foaming agent PB-2000 is characterized by the following parameters:
|General view at 20-25°Ñ
||Homogenous transparent liquid from light-yellow to brown color
|Density at 20°Ñ, kg/m³
|pH parameter, in the range
|Foam ratio of the working mortar with volume of foaming agent percentage 4%, min
|Foam stability, min
The foaming agent PB-2000 is delivered as a concentrate. It is recommended to use the foaming agent PB-2000 in 3% (rev.) concentrated water solution so called working solution. Take 97 liters of water and 3 liters of foaming agent, mix up to homogeneous state to prepare 100 liters of such solution. The foam ratio obtained from the working solution using the foam generator, is specified by the quality of used water (see Table):
||Distilled water (condensate)
3 mg -equv/l
|3% (vol.) working solution PB-2000
It should exclude the oils and oil products traces and in water. That causes for the irreversible reduction of foam ratio and spoils the solution. It is forbidden to store solutions in the tanks made of "ferrous" steel. If it not possible to store in stainless steel tanks, it should prepare such quantity of the solution which will be used during a working shift.
The foaming concentrate PB-2000 consumption on 1 m³ of foam concrete depends on the level of the used technology and density of the received material. If the equipment for foam concrete production is selected qualitatively the consumption will be 0,2-0,3 liter for Ð=800 kg/m³; 0,6-0,7 liter - for Ð=300-400 kg/m³.
The pouring is made at optimum temperature of the foaming solution 17-20 °Ñ. During the foam concrete pouring before to be set it should provide a constant temperature to exclude the rise of mass in a form within 2-3 hours.
The frozen foaming agent PB-2000 restores fully its properties after to be defrosted completely. At defrosting the rise of the temperature of foaming agent above 50°Ñ is not allowed. After full thawing of the product the mass is mixed up to homogeneous state and is used in the production.
