Foam concrete blocks are a lightweight and durable building material. They are used for outdoor projects and also for partition walls in homes. These blocks have various advantages, including heat insulation, strength, and fire resistance.
Foam concrete is a cement-based mixture that includes sand and water. It is made in a wheelbarrow. The foaming agent provides the necessary air content.
Mixing foam and mortar is not an easy task. First, you must ensure that the mixture is evenly distributed throughout the whole mixture. Also, you need to mix in the right amount of sand.
Once you are done mixing the ingredients, you can pour the slurry into the moulds. After that, you should allow it to set for about a week. This can help to improve the density of the foamed concrete block.
During the curing process, you should wrap the poured form in a cling wrap. You can also keep it wet with water. When the time is up, you can remove the poured form.
There are several types of foam concrete blocks. Some are lightweight, while others have higher density. A structural foam block is ideal for low-rise and multi-storey buildings.
A foamed concrete block can be cut into smaller blocks when it becomes solid. The blocks can be used as void fillers and non-bearing fillers. However, you may need to get professional assistance if you want to build a foundation or a wall.
Before you begin to make a foam concrete block, you should consider the purposes of your project. If you are building a partition, you might want to use a block that is heat-insulating.
