Study on the Performance of New Foamed Cement Insulation Material


Article Preview

In this experiment, cement, fly ash, quicklime, foaming agent and foam stabilizer were used as raw materials to prepare the new foamed cement insulation material. Single-factor tests were designed to study the influence of different dosages of foaming agent, foam stabilizer and quicklime on the material properties. The optimum ratio was determined: content of fly ash was 25%, water-cement ratio was 0.37, content of foaming agent was 4.5%, content of foam stabilizer was 1.2% and content of quicklime was 1.5%. The material is tested: 3d compressive strength of the material is 1.049MPa, 3d flexural strength of the material is 0.608MPa.
