Description

Foaming agent for concrete and mortar

USES

Hind Foamex is recommended for use in structures that is required to be thermally insulated and protected against the ingress of moisture, like Roof / Terrace, Basements, Masonry AC Ducts, Cold Storages, Auditorium, Hospital, Industrial Factory Shades etc.

 

ADVANTAGES 

  • Provides full proof thermal insulation, saving energy.
  • Low permeability makes mortar or concrete waterproof.
  • Imparts chemical resistance to substrate.
  • Reduces or prevents salt penetration into concrete
  • Due to light weight does not add extra load to roof structure.
  • It has a good mechanical stability & acts as a excellent shock absorber.

APPLICATION

To the freshly prepared cement Slurry maintaining W/C ratio 0.6, Hind Foamex is added and mixed with a high speed mixer to generate foam concrete. To get the desired density of the foam concrete, light weight additives like vermiculite or perlite may be used. It also reduces the cement consumption for making cement slurry. It is recommended to mix Hind Foamex with water used for making cement slurry to achieve best results. Normally curing is to be carried on for 7 (seven) days. Foam concrete blocks can be used for non-load bearing partition walls in multi storied buildings as per required dimensions. To minimize the water absorption of the foam concrete, the surface may be coated/sprayed with Hind Coat Repel, silicon based water repellent coating. To achieve full proof waterproofing of roof, Hind Crete Plus WPM admixed with cement in the ratio of 1:2 in two coats to be applied over the roof surface, prior to foam concreting.
