Corrofoam

Description

High performance foaming agent

Features

  • Creates a matrix of stable, evenly distributed air bubbles in both the fresh and hydrated system employed.
  • Prevents segregation of the cement and low density aggregates such as vermiculite / pertile or other low density aggregates such as polystyrene beads.
  • Reduces density due to air-entrainment increases the workability of the mix.
  • Has all the attributes of conventional air entraining admixtures.
  • Does not retard or affect the hydration characteristics of concrete or mortars.
  • Reduces overall mass density up to 30% depending on the system used by and mixing equipment employed.
  • Increase cohesiveness – preventing separation of dissimilar materials and differing densities.
  • Improves workability – the micro air bubbles entrained act as ball bearings, lubricating the mix.

Uses

Corrofoam is recommended for all concrete and mortar mixes where low density and entrained air is required.

  1. All types of cement
  2. Highway slabs, runways
  3. Dams, resevoirs
  4. Road and maritime construction
  5. Compensation of the harshness of some natural sand with low fine particle content
  6. Concrete exposed to thaw
  7. Extruded concrete
