FOAMING AGENT: ISOCEM S/L

ISOCEM S/L is a foaming agent for next-generation cellular concrete. Its natural surfactants, mixed with plant-based raw materials, make it very powerful and effective. Although it is a foaming agent for cellular concrete, it can also be used as an air-entraining additive for cement mixes containing lightweight aggregates such as polystyrene or vermiculite.

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

Isocem S/L is a foaming agent for cellular concrete developed by Isoltech.
Its fundamental physical properties are:
Physical Properties Isocem S/L
Appearance liquid
Colour light brown
Specific Weight 1,015 ±0,01 gr/litre
PH 7,5 – 9
Freezing Point -2° C
The foaming agent for the production of Isocem S/L cellular concrete is used in percentages equal to 2.5/3% and is suitable for applications such as screeds, sloping roofs and terraces, roadbeds and fillings.

The foaming agent is sold in 1000 kg tanks or in 200 kg drums.

PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF ISOCEM S/L BASED CELLULAR CONCRETE

The physical properties of the cellular concrete obtained from the use of the specific foaming agent Isocem S/L are, however, influenced by the foam/cement ratio, which influences the densities obtained and with it the final properties of thermal insulation and acoustic insulation.

They are:

  • 300 Kg/m³
  • 400 Kg/m³
  • 500 Kg/m³
  • 600 Kg/m³

These correspond to the thermal insulation and mechanical strength values described as indication below:

Density Thermal Insulation
D 300 kg/m³ 0.062 kal/m/hour/°C
D 400 kg/m³ 0.08 kal/m/hour/°C
D 500 kg/m³ 0.09 kal/m/hour/°C
D 600 kg/m³ 0.12 kal/m/hour/°C
